Abstract

Tasmanian Aboriginal genealogies with an appendix on Kangaroo Island and a separate volume for the Briggs Family was compiled in October 1976 by Bruce Charles "Bill" Mollison. The genealogies comprise all known Tasmanian Aboriginal families. They have been compiled from a diverse source of records. The journals of George Augustus Robinson are the basis for much information on the parent generations. These journals, edited by N.J.B. Plomley were published in 1966. Robinson's unpublished journals were also consulted. Tasmanian Aboriginal Genealogical data has been gathered in the past by N.B. Tindale, A.L. Meston, E.W. Stephens, J.B. Bladon and, more recently, R.A Littlewood. The genealogies are an attempt to update and extend these earlier studies. Much material has been gathered from Church Records, family documents and interviews and correspondence with descendants or local historians.
Although the majority of Tasmanian Aboriginal families now live throughout the state they all have their beginnings in the Furneaux Group. Many people in the south of Tasmania claim Aboriginal descent. These families have not been traced to origin and therefore not included in this publication.
