Family history research projects can be time-consuming and frustrating but also very rewarding. We have put together a range of information and resources to help you on your journey.
Our program aims to assist Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Stolen Generations survivors and their families by providing family history research assistance and access to information about their families.
The Family History Unit does not provide family history support to determine if you have Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander heritage. If you are seeking proof of Aboriginality, AIATSIS does not assist with or provide proof of Aboriginality.
