Pre-order records for your visit to the Western Sydney Records Centre

Get the most research out of your day by pre-ordering records in advance of your visit. Make your request at least 2 working days ahead of your visit to the Western Sydney Reading Room.

You can order up to four original record items (including probate packets) in advance. All original records are stored at the Western Sydney Records Centre, where they can be viewed.

You do not need to pre-order copied material such as microfilm reels or microfiche as these items are on open access in the reading room.

You will need a reader's ticket to view original records.

  • Pre-order records form
  • Pre-order probate packets form
  • Please ensure that your pre-order is placed before 2.00pm TWO working days prior to your planned visit. We cannot guarantee that pre-orders received after this time will be available from the start of the day of your visit.
    State Records staff will confirm receipt of your pre-order and when the records may be available in the reading room.
    Working days are Mondays - Fridays, excluding Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays.
