Welcome to the
Tenterfield GenWeb

The Tenterfield GenWeb has been set up as a transcript depot.  It is dependant upon the support of volunteers to transcribe or donate genealogical materials relating to the Tenterfield Shire.  These documents and associated links are made freely available to researchers.


Wanted: a volunteer willing to adopt the Tenterfield GenWeb.  A Volunteer Local Coordinator is responsible for the maintenance of this website.  This site is hosted for FREE courtesy of Rootsweb.  If you do not like the look and feel of this site you may update to suit your personal tastes.  Basic web editing skills (or the desire to learn) and a genuine interest in the history of the Tenterfield region are the only prerequisites (non-locals may apply).

If you would like to adopt this website and subsequently take on the vacant position of Local Coordinator for the Tenterfield GenWeb please contact the Australian Coordinator for further information.

Tenterfield is a town and local government area located in the New England region of northern New South Wales, Australia.  Tenterfield's proximity to many regional centres and its position between Sydney and Brisbane led to it being a centre for the promotion of Federation of the Australian States. Sir Henry Parkes (pictured in the Tenterfield GenWeb logo) delivered his Federation Speech in the town of Tenterfield in 1889 whilst en route from Brisbane to Sydney.
