Immigration records Australia

Immigration records to be available online - ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation): "Almost every Australian immigration record will be available online in the next few years as part of a project being launched at the National Archives in Canberra today.

The Archives has committed to making records for the 7 million people who immigrated to Australia searchable on the internet, in a project likely to take several years.

Archives director general Ross Gibbs says the resource, called Making Australia Home, should provide the tools for people wanting to map their family story.

'We get so many inquiries from overseas, the whole diaspora of Australians,' he said.

'It's by far the most asked questions we get,' he said."
