Australian Genealogy Research
Are you an Australian looking to discover a connection to a Mayflower passenger or just starting to research your Australian family history as a hobby? Or perhaps you're an American who has discovered a family member who immigrated to Australia and want to learn more?
Either way, you'll find the Australian research resources below a useful starting point. These websites include searchable Australian State and Federal records of births, deaths and marriages, shipping lists, newspapers, defence personnel and more. Also included are a range of other sites which may assist Australians with their family history search.
35 million people worldwide are thought to be descended from the Mayflower passengers. As you trace your Australian relatives back to their origins, you may ultimately find that you're one of them!
