    You will want to begin your search by exploring the state/territory Websites.  You may discover that one of the them is in need of a coordinator. If you are interested in adopting one of them, please contact us.

    Each of the states/territories maintains a system for submitting queries. The query page for each state/territory is listed below, however you'll want to visit the state/territory Website to find other available resources.

    In many cases you might not know which state/territory your ancestor was from.  We have created a general query board to assist you.  Click here to visit the General Australia Queries Board.


    AustraliaGenWeb is in need of volunteers to host state/territory pages and query boards, provide lookup resources, transcribe data and more.

    If you might be interested in volunteering, please stop by the policies page to learn more about what is required.
