Family History in Australia.

The basic first steps will be pretty much the same when researching your family history in Australia, but in addition there are many useful websites specific to Australia which you will find extremely helpful.

Click here for the National Archives of Australia. It is an important site that has lots of information relative to Australian research.

No Australian family history page would be complete without a link to the site where we may search for passenger and ships lists. The best I have found is The Ships List.

It is very important to join a family history society, to meet like minded people with more experience than yourself. They also have source material possibly unavailable elsewhere. For information about the societies from the governing body - the Australasian Federation of Family History Organisations - click here.

The Society of Australian Genealogists has lots of information to help you in your research, including some very useful links. click here.

The Australian Family History Compendium has a good site with again many useful links. click here.

Another great site - The Australian Institute of Genealogical Studies click here.

A directory of Australian Archives may be found here.
