Those researching in Australia, here’s an offer for you: Genealogy website MyHeritage is celebrating Australian National Family History Month in August by granting free access to many of its Australian records collections through this Friday, Aug. 22. You’ll need to set up a free MyHeritage account (or log in, if you already have one).
That includes Australian birth, marriage and death records, electoral rolls, school records and more. You can start searching MyHeritage Australian records here.
Even if you don’t have ancestors Down Under, you might have cousins there if relatives migrated to Britain’s Australian colonies.
