In Reply to: May, Ruby, Olive, Violet, Ivy and Lily Harding lookup please by Wayne Brown of 1995

The only location information on the CDs was B in the code indicating Brisbane. I assume the C indicates Country - everything outside of Brisbane. (searching on line returns the 2 types of codes B and C)

Births to 1919, marriages to 1939 and deaths to 1964 are available on fiche and are held by LDS centres and major libraries etc throughout Australia.

Sometimes location can be determined by finding burials,

You can check Brisbane burials here - although the records show outside of Brisbane they can be very close localities and may be buried in Brisbane

This option seems to be a winner
Ernest James Harding buried 26 Sep 1946 aged 82 & in the same grave Maria Agnes 17 Aug 1928 62 years. Toowong Cemetery Brisbane. You may find the babes & some of the girls as well.

If your state library has the Courier Mail on film - funeral notices would probably give the married name of some of the daughters.

Were the parents born in Qld or did they immigrate - immigration records may give information as to where they settled.

Google some of the names - you may find other folks researching the same families.

When all else fails - buying a certificate will give a location.
