Ancestry launches Convicts’ Applications to Marry for Valentine’s Day

Ancestry has launched a new database, ‘Registers of Convicts’ Applications to Marry’ in time for Valentine’s Day. The registers from the State Records Authority of New South Wales cover the period 1826-1851 and the information given includes name, age, birth year, spouse, whether or not permission was granted and the date of permission or refusal.

This database, along with all the rest of the Ancestry content, can be searched within the State Library building. To access it go to our website at www.slwa.wa.gov.au and select How Do I Find – Electronic Resources – Databases by Category – Family History – Ancestry Library Edition.
