Updated May 2024

These guidelines have been prepared as a basic guide. Interpretations of correct procedures vary greatly between organizations and agencies and are continuing to change.

They have been adapted to meet the perceived needs of the Tasmanian Family History Society Inc. and to accommodate some existing conventions.
