A note about the Index
Although a name may appear in the index, in some cases the Bankruptcy file may not have survived.
If you cannot find a name
If the name of a known bankruptcy does not appear in the index, researchers are advised to consult the NSW Government Gazette in the relevant timeframe to assist in locating the file reference.
References to files that have been used previously and which do not appear in the website index, can still be used to retrieve the file.
The Index is not a comprehensive listing of the Bankruptcy files, 1888-1929. NRS13655 [10/22500-4400] and some names may have been omitted from the index. Please advise us of any omissions so that the index can be updated.
A note about the records
A proportion of State archives are fragile and for this reason we may withhold access to the original archive until it has received attention from our Conservation staff. Archives will be checked on a case by case basis as they are requested either in the Reading Room or for a copy order. If an archive requires conservation treatment there will be a delay in the archive being issued and/or copied. Conservation treatments can take up to six months to be completed.
This index was compiled by staff and checked by volunteer Lynne Selden. We would like to thank Lynne for her contribution to making these records more accessible.
