The internet is a valuable aid to research into family history.

This website contains a variety of information relating to family history and genealogy, including guides, indexes and digitised images of documents. We also provide links to other informative sites both in Australia and overseas that include pathways to make contact with other family historians via indexed family trees, mailing lists and bulletin boards.

A number of online resources for family history can be located via our indexes page.

We have a variety of resources available to you, some of these are subscription resources which can only be accessed by supporting us and becoming a member or by paying the relevant research online. The resources are also available to view in the Library's Wangarratta reading rooms.
