Australian Resources for Genealogy
There is no national register of birth, death and marriage records. Each Australian state maintains its own register and each state has different regulations allowing for the release of historical data. The National Archives of Australia holds military and naturalisation records post Federation (1901). It also holds the records for post World War II refugee arrivals into Australia. Each state will also have a Public Records Office or State Archives, which holds state-related archival material.
