Remarks: The Ryerson Index covers death notices and obituaries in 86+ Australian newspapers. The Index is an ongoing work-in-progress and is not a comprehensive index, but is still a useful source. Newspaper titles are predominantly from Sydney and country NSW, with several papers from other states and territories indexed as well. The date ranges indexed vary from paper to paper and are not necessarily complete within that range. Most of what has been indexed is contemporary, that is, within the last 30 years.
