      Warning! Before we all get too excited about the recently released
      Queensland death indexes to 1983... please note that the Registry has
      omitted parents' names from many index entries despite the fact that parents
      are named on the death certificate. For more details, see Queensland
      Genealogy.

      Queensland Registrar-General's indexes to births to 1914, marriages to 1938
      and deaths to 1983 are now online - but note that some indexes (births to
      1919 and marriages to 1939) are available on microfiche but not online.

      Once you know a year of death, it's much easier to search for a recent
      Supreme Court probate file - which, if it exists, will include the death
      certificate, thus saving you a lot of money.

      There are other tips about Queensland birth, death and marriage records on
      my Web site and in the book Tips for Queensland Research. See also 'Free
      certificates in Archives files'.
