This book introduces the history and records of migration to Australia from 1788.
Migrating to a new country was one of the most dramatic life changes anyone undertook and it certainly affected the lives of their descendants. Investigating their journey is a key part of your family history research.
However, immigration records in Australia are not all held in one place - when, where and how they arrived affect where (and whether) records of their arrival can be found.
Understanding categories of arrivals and the immigration schemes in place as well as the general principles of where documents are held, will give you confidence that you have looked in all the right places.
