The Internet is a valuable aid to research into family history. These Australian sites contain a variety of information relating to family history and genealogy including guides, indexes and digitised images of documents. They also provide links to other informative sites both in Australia and overseas and contact with other family historians via indexed family trees, mailing lists and bulletin boards.

The National Library of Australia maintains a website that lists selected websites for Australian family history and genealogy. Major categories of information available are:[1]

Writing and Sharing Your Family History

Sharing your own family history is valuable for several reasons: It helps you see gaps in your own research and raises opportunities to find new information. It helps other researchers progress in researching ancestors you share in common. It draws other researchers to you who already have information about your family that you do not yet possess. It draws together researchers with common interests, sparking collaboration opportunities. For instance, researchers in various localities might choose to do lookups for each other in remote repositories. Your readers may also share photos of your ancestors that you have never seen before.
