A great deal of work has been done over the last few decades. Taking original paper documents, photographing them, transcribing their contents. Putting our history into a digital format we can use today. All around the world this is taking place from small country parishes through to state and federal archives. The collections useful for Genealogy now contain billions of searchable records. What’s more is that many of them remain free.
The public records listed in the Australian Genealogy index are useful when researching your family history. Records date back to the 1700’s and cover a range of topics. Find out whether your ancestors served in the Australian Military, discover if any were bankrupt.
Certain records will keep the tree growing, showing parents and siblings. Run the search again but this time with the parents name. That’s the beauty of genealogy research online, everything is just a button click away.
