A register of Pioneer Families of Bathurst NSW and District before 1900.

The Bathurst Family History Group Inc. published a comprehensive Pioneer Register in 2007.

The publication includes entries for 5,239 pioneers. Some of these (about 200) are alternate spellings which point to another entry. Overall, there are more than 31,750 named people in the Pioneer Register.

The program is fully interactive, and you can search on any keyword (first or last name, place, etc.) and when you display a name: d.o.b.; father; mother; death details; spouse; children and contributor will all display. Names are linked to related people. A full list of Surnames on CD is available here 

Fifty early Parish and District maps from the 1800’s are available on the CD

There were more than 750 contributors for this Pioneer Register.

Both the CD and the book include specially prepared maps which include some place names that are no longer used and an index of place names to help you find them.
