If a soldier quite was can consult. For WWII, you’ll find service personnel listed however, there might be times when youat need some guidance or you are not sure what to do next. place these service records online. The following questions and answers may help you to decide on your next step.

In order tobefore fully research family gaps their knowledgeSometimes of ancestors youindexes may not know of or have forgotten. story societies andwith other repositories. only rch in a record repository. Q. I’ve recorded everything I can. Where do I go next? A. From the information you’ve already gathered hopefully you’ll have an idea of where your family lived in Australia. From the time of white 1788 through Federation in 1901, every colony kept its own records. So to have any real chance with your research. Theysettlement tend to beinpeople who’vetoalready of finding your youthe need to know whether w what records you need tofamily use and pitfalls you might face.to look in NSW, or WA, or Queensland, or whichever area you believe to be one where youryou people settled.if Record keeping rmation you the need and can help determine someone has was different for each colony and there is no guarantee that a record sourcehistory, you findand in one willsaying exist ingoes, another. Even after Federation took place in 1901 the states continued to maintain their walls in our family as the ‘a problem own independent record keeping for births, deaths g because you don’t know where to look or which record to and marriages, probates, land transfers and many other sets of records. break down that barrier. Q. Where will I find birth, death and marriage information? A. There might want to join?is no one national index of births, deaths and marriages in Australia, although commercial ‘pay to view’ sites are trying to these. Aorganisations good website look atat initially is Cora Num’s gateway site for Australian research – see nc. lists all create of its member on itsto website will lead to the website of each state’s Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages – most have teway site – www.coraweb.com.au www.coraweb.com.au isThis another goodyou reference online indexes you can search and some allow you to order copies of certificates online (and in several cases to download them electronically as soon as you have completed your purchase).

What canSome I expect to webinars obtain from Q. at ses, or ask yourinformation local library. offer too,a certificate? so A. Again this will vary for each state. Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria have some of the best civil registration systems me. for births, deaths and marriages anywhere in the world. A NSW death certificate, for example, can tell you when the deceased had arrived in the colony, when and where they were born and who their parents were, where, when and who they married andmay the names and ages ofcertificates their children. It can also give the burial place, the former occupation, the cause of death and the search – they have purchased or obtained of death. There through was no the uniform for the commencement of civil registration in the various colonies (most had u reinvent thedate wheel, check online majordate websites introduced 1856 although the came territories een tracing family historythis longbybefore the internet along,did so much later) and prior to this you will have to rely on surviving church of baptisms, marriages and burials which are not as informative. ganization in registrations your state might hold a book published 50 years

6

Q. Where do I find parish registers? A. Prior to the commencement of civil registration, churches kept records of baptisms, marriages and burials, as they continue to do to this day. Some parish records are available on microfilm in libraries and family history societies, others may still be held with the diocesan archives. For some colonies the early church registers have been copied across to the State Registry and are available as part of their historical record series. Q. How can I find when my ancestor arrived here? A. Like BDM records, passenger records were kept by authorities in the colony in which they arrived, so there is no one national index you can check. However, many of the State archives are putting shipping records online as have some of the commercial ‘pay to view’ websites. Your ancestor may have come to Australia as a convict, a free person, an assisted passenger, as crew or as part of the military, and the records associated with each will be different. Unfortunately record keeping sometimes left a lot to be desired. For instance, when thousands were flooding into New South Wales during the goldrushes of the 1850s the authorities resorted to recording the number of arrivals, but not recording their names.

5

Q Why can’t I find census records – I’ve used them for the UK and they are great A Unfortunately historical census records have not survived in Australia as they have for many overseas countries and hence they are not a key source for Australian family history as they are in the UK and America. Where census (or muster) information does exist, it may include name, age, ship of arrival, status (as in free or convict), religion, occupation and place of residence. Some census will only show details for the head of the household but not for everyone living with them. A good substitute can be electoral rolls and directories. Before 1903 only males over 21 who were British subjects were listed on electoral rolls but after that time women begin to appear too. Post Office directories for both city and country areas were common and many of these can be searched online. Q. What if my ancestor was a convict? A. This can be good! Convicts were prisoners of the crown, so many records were created about them – when they were transported, their sentence and crime, what they looked like (in case they escaped and had to be identified), whether they were assigned to work for someone or sent out on a road gang, and much more. Depending on how well behaved they were, they may have received a Ticket of Leave (giving them permission to work for themselves in a specific district), a Conditional Pardon (having the rest of their sentence overturned on condition they did not return to the country from which they were convicted) or an Absolute Pardon (reinstating them as free citizens). Different records were created at different times and each colony which took convicts had their own system of record keeping. New South Wales, Tasmania and Western Australia were the main colonies which accepted convicts, although many ended up in other colonies because they reoffended or were assigned to work there. The State Archives in each state is the place to start if you wish to trace convict records. Q. What if I think my ancestor served in one of the wars? A. Excellent records survive of Australian service personnel for both world wars. WWI service records are available for free online through the National Archives (www.naa.gov.au) and provide detailed information about war service, as well as useful genealogical information such as date and place of birth, next of kin, occupation and place of residence. If a soldier was wounded or died there may also be Red Cross files which you can consult. For WWII, you’ll find service personnel listed at www.ww2.roll.gov.au and National Archives is also beginning to place these service records online. Q. What if my person came from Europe or Asia? A. Australia has always been a nation of immigrants. As it was established as a British colony, people who wanted to buy land or vote had to be British subjects. Many non-British settlers therefore became naturalized, and these records can assist in determining their place of origin as well as where and when they arrived. Prior to 1903 naturalization records were state based, but after this time naturalization was a Commonwealth responsibility. From 1923 the Commonwealth took over responsibility for recording shipping arrivals, so the National Archives will be the place to check for arrivals after that date. Q. Is everything I need online? A. No. While an increasing array of records are online, there are as many that are not. In order to fully research your family history you’ll need to visit your state archive and library, family history societies and other repositories. Sometimes only indexes are available online, and you need to follow up with further research in a record repository. Q. Why would a family history society be able to help me? A. Family history societies all have volunteers available to assist you with your research. They tend to be people who’ve already done a lot of research into their own family history, so they know what records you need to use and the pitfalls you might face. They can often show you more economical ways to find the information you need and can help you determine if someone has already done work on a line you are tracing. We all find brickwalls in our family history, and as the saying goes, ‘a problem shared is a problem solved’. Sometimes you can’t find something because you don’t know where to look or which record to consult next – a visit to a family history society will often help you break down that barrier. Q. Where can I find information on any family history societies that I might want to join? A. The Australian Federation of Family History Organisations Inc. lists all of its member organisations on its website at www.affho.org and this is a good place to start. Cora Num’s gateway site – www.coraweb.com.au is another good reference point. Q. Where can I learn more about researching family history? A. Check with the society in your local area to see if they run courses, or ask at your local library. Some offer webinars too, so you can participate in sessions from the comfort of your own home. Q. How can I be sure this family hasn’t already been traced? A. It’s important to check to see if others have already done research – they may have purchased certificates or obtained documentation that could be useful to your research. Before you reinvent the wheel, check online through the major websites and also with your local society. Remember that people have been tracing family history long before the internet came along, so a local or family history society or the major genealogical organization in your state might hold a book published 50 years ago that contains the information you are looking for.

The Federation of Family History Societies (FFHS) is a UK based educational charity. We represent, advise and support our membership, which consists of family history societies and similar bodies across the world. To achieve our mission, we:   

co-ordinate and assist the work of organisations interested in family history, genealogy and heraldry foster co-operation and projects that help researchers represent the interests of family historians, especially in the preservation and availability of archives.

Membership is open to any society or body specialising in family history or an associated discipline. The Federation makes representations to official UK bodies on matters affecting the study of family history and related topics as well as regular liaising with a number of government bodies and archives. The Federation therefore provides an authentic, audible, and respected voice for the many thousands of individual family historians. Education is a vital activity for the Federation. This is achieved through the regular meetings and discussions conducted by member societies and through courses on family history organised around the world.
