This will bring you to the general search page. In order to search the free Australian and New Zealand records, your search location must be focused on Australia and New Zealand only.

Once you've clicked search, you'll be taken to the search results page where records matching your criteria will be listed. You can edit your search or order the results from this screen. If you would like to view any of the free records click the small blue transcript, image or pdf icons beside it. The transcript is a typed version of the record, containing the most important information, while the image (if available) will show you exactly what the original record looked like and often contains extra details that the transcript doesn't. A pdf result usually holds the entire page of a publication which could contain lists with multiple names.
