Australian Births, Marriages, and Deaths

This week Ancestry announced that the availability of the Australia Birth, Marriage, and Death Index:

Australia Birth Index, 1788-1922 Australia Marriage Index, 1788-1949 Australia Death Index, 1787-1985

These indexes include the Australian registrar's offices after civil registration of births, marriages, and deaths became law in the mid 19th century. Also church records that predate civil registration.
We searched these indexes for Pask, Paske, and Pasque, and found the following information:
Australia Birth Index, 1788-1922
62 Pask births
22 Paske births
66 Pask-related births, with the mother's name of Pask(e), these include:
Bonfield, Butters, Horton, Kruger, Lee, McClelland, Moll, Moss, Peggie, Pentland,
Schmid, Stokes, Trewhella, and Wiber
Australia Marriage Index, 1788-1949
73 Pask marriages
31 Paske marriages
Australia Death Index, 1787-1985
99 Pask deaths
20 Paske deaths
12 Pasque deaths
66 Pask-related births, with a parent's name of Pask(e), these include:
Amos, Anderson, Bonfield, Buckland, Carter, Curtis, Davie, De Lacy, Dean, Dunbar, Edwards, Horton, Hughes, Hunt, Kinsey, Kruger, McClelland, Morris, Moss, Too, Peers, Peggie, Pentland, Probert, Roberts, Scott, Smalley, Smith, Steen, Stokes, Trewhella, Webb, Weber, Wiber, Williams, Woodward, Yook

Some of this BMDs are already included into our database, mainly thanks to contributions from Colleen Willis, who meticulously searched all the available individual indexes in 2007/8. In the future we will include the remaining entries.

In the meantime, if you would like a specific entry, please do not hesitate to contact us.
