Family History resources in State, Territory and Overseas collections

State and Territory libraries

State and territory libraries hold family history collections specialising in resources for their jurisdiction and a selection of material relating to other areas of Australia and overseas.

State and Territory archives and research organisations

State and Territory archives hold the records of government for their respective jurisdiction. Some archive websites allow users to freely search indexes to the material held in that archive, e.g. immigration, convict records, census, court records, hospitals, divorce, land, patents etc.
