Unregistered deaths: look for inquests (Tuesday's Tip)

If you cannot find a death registration, look for an inquest. You will often find an inquest file (Justice Department or similar) and/or a newspaper report for a death that was not registered. This definitely happened in Queensland and Victoria. Have you seen the same thing elsewhere?

For advice on Queensland's inquest files see the 'Queensland tips' page on my Web site, or use the latest edition of my book Tips for Queensland Research.

('Tuesday's Tip' is a theme used by 'Geneabloggers'.)
