Find your ancestors in Coffs Harbour District Schools

These transcripts were compiled from school admission registers for fourteen schools in the Coffs Harbour region. While the amount of available information varies, most transcripts will include the following:

  • First name(s)
  • Last name
  • Year
  • School name where the student was enrolled
  • Admission date
  • Date of leaving school
  • Register number: this provides an identifier to locate the entry in the source document

Please note that any field with only a question mark (?) indicates the data could not be deciphered or that more detail was not provided in the register. Where information is included along with a question mark (?), this means the transcribers found inconsistencies in the information.
