New South Wales teachers rolls 1869-1908

Ancestry ( has added a new collection, New South Wales, Australia, Teachers’ Rolls, 1869-1908, sourced from State Records Authority of New South Wales, Kingswood, New South Wales, Australia (NRS 4073 9 reels).

If your ancestors emigrated down under and took up teaching as a career, it's well worth a look. Details include:
  • age at the time of hire
  • training
  • promotions
  • teaching classifications
  • employment history with school names and dates
  • awards
  • reprimands and disciplinary actions
  • salary
  • marital status

There are nearly 15,000 teachers indexed in the collection. To search the names visit


My new book, Tracing Your Irish Family History on the Internet, is now available from Pen and Sword. My Scottish land and church records ebooks are available at, whilst my next Pharos Scottish course, Scottish Research Online, starts Sep 4th - see Time to smash a few brick walls...!
