|You can use Ancestry Library Edition when you are in the Library.|
The name of the collection in Ancestry will most likely be different to the name of the collection in the Library or at other institutions such as State Record NSW.
For example, one of the collections on Ancestry is called 'Australia Convict Ship Muster Rolls and Related Records, 1790-1849' while at the Library and State Archives & Records NSW it is called 'Musters and other papers relating to convict ships, 1790-1849'.
Make sure you view the image of the original record. Most of the time the image contains further information.
