The Australian Joint Copying Project (AJCP) is a collection of historical documents relating to Australia and other former British Colonies dating from 1560 to 1984. The material, which has now been microfilmed, comes from records held in the United Kingdom.

The microfilms in the collection are divided into two series:

  • Public Records Office (PRO) – records from the Public Record Office (now The National Archives)
  • Miscellaneous (M) – archives and manuscripts from a variety of English, Irish, Scottish, and Welsh institutions and organisations.

The AJCP  resources are now available through the Trove website provide a wealth of material for family historians.

In this session, Carmel will examine the scope and range of records available and investigate a variety of ways of finding treasures in this huge collection, and show you how you can access this rich collection.

The QFHS Library holds an almost complete range of the AJCP handbooks.
