As Trove now has the Riverine Herald online till 1954 we have now indexed from there to 1961 and working forwards.
We also have uploaded to Trove 1998, 1999, 2000 thanks to NLA and PROV and expect 2001, 2002 to be uploaded to TROVE early 2020.
Our indexing team is currently working on years 1960 - 1990.
As a year is indexed it is uploaded to our database to be used in research.
