Newspapers published in New South Wales

There have been many newspapers published in NSW since the First Fleet, and your ancestors may well appear in one or more of them.

The following list shows those that we are able to search for you. They are arranged by the town of original publication and dates available to us are shown.

Please note that not every issue within the date range may be available. There are often missing issues, and occasionally entire years may not have survived within a date range.

Newspapers are notoriously difficult to search and few are even partially indexed, so the closer you can get to an event that you would like us to look for, the better for your pocket.

We conduct searches at our standard hourly-rate, and printouts of any references are provided at no cost (unless otherwise stated).

Should you are able to provide a precise reference giving paper title and exact date, then we will provide a copy of the article for AU$15.
