About this project

This collection contains 2 volumes on the pioneers and settlers of the Far North in Queensland. The registers have primarily been compiled from entries received through descendents of these pioneers.

The first volume covers "residents of the Far North, extending from the tip of Cape York, south to Cardwell, and west to Normanton. The only stipulation was that the resident had to have lived in the area pre 1920."

The second volume covers the same area - "the pioneer had to live in the area bounded by Cardwell to the south, Normanton to the west, and north to the tip of Cape York". However, in this register they just had to have resided there sometime before 1940.

Relationship

Enter the relationship of the person to the primary (first) person of the entry. Mark the relationship for primary individuals as "self". For children where you are unable to tell the gender (and are therefore unable to mark them as "son" or "daughter"), use the generic relationship of "child".
See Example

Related To

Enter the record number, as assigned in the keying tool (not on the image), of the primary person that this relationship pertains to. All individuals included in an entry should have the same record number and they should all point to the individual marked as "self". For "self" individuals, enter their own record number here. If the first entry on your page is a continuation of an entry that began on the previous page, leave this field blank, as you do not know the primary person to whom the relationships pertain.

The number that should be entered in the Related To field is the Record number that appears to the left of the primary person in each paragraph. For the first person on the page (unless it is a continuation) the first person would be Record 1 so all the subsequent relations would have a "1" entered in the Related To field. If there were 5 people in the first paragraph the primary person in the second paragraph would be record number 6 (the number found in the "Records" column to the left of the data entry area) so everyone listed in the second paragraph would have a Related To number of "6".
See Example

Entry Continued

Some entries begin at the bottom of one page and continue on to the top of the next page. Key a "1" into this field for every record (name) that appers in an entry that continues on to the following page. Key a "2" into this field for every record (name) that appears in an entry that is a continuation from a previous page. If entries begin and end on the same page, leave this field blank. How to identify if an entry begins and ends on the same page:Every entry ends with a Reference number in parentheses. In volume 1, they look like this: "(Ref ###)". In volume 2 they look like this "(Q1)", "(L1)", "(H10)", etc. If you do not see this at the end of the entry, then you can assume that it continues onto the next page.Every entry begins with the primary person's surname bolded and in all caps. If the first entry on your page does not begin like this, you can assume it is a continuation from an entry on the previous page.
