Finding A.C.T. Ancestors

If you are looking for a birth, death or marriage in the NSW area of Australia, don't forget the Australian Capital Territory!  Especially if you are looking in the country areas around Canberra.  The ACT does not have an online search like other states, instead they have access to excel spreadsheets. There are no Birth indexes however online.

Remember that the ACT only came into being in 1911 - up until 1930  (and indeed after!) search the NSW BDM Indexes.  

 So what is available?
