Family history tells the story of you and your ancestors, and places it within a larger historical picture. It's a long journey, at times potted with surprising and moving discoveries from the past.

To help get you started on your family history journey, join family history library staff and watch one of our learning webinars from 2020 introducing eResources, published family histories, newspaper collections and frequently used material such as electoral rolls, shipping records and birth, death and marriage indexes.

The Library's collections offer a wealth of resources to the Australian family historian. Whether you're just starting out, or a long-time researcher, we can help you to trace your family story!
