What is in This Collection?[edit | edit source]

This collection will include records from 1828, which is an index of the 1828 census returns from New South Wales. Original records are located in the Mitchell Library in Sydney, which is one of three buildings attached to the State Library of New South Wales.

The 1828 New South Wales Census was conducted in November 1828 and was the first census to be taken in New South Wales. Prison convicts were often sent to Australia to serve their sentences, so this information may appear on the census.

To protect individual privacy, national censuses were destroyed after statistical information was collected. The New South Wales 1828 census was one of the few censuses that survived the destruction.
