Family History

Italian Historical Society collections are available for individuals documenting their family history, as well as for academic or professional research.
Although the Italian Historical Society is not a genealogical centre, we have assembled some information and advice for researchers trying to find the records that tell their family story.
Some advice is provided here about locating records in Australia or in Italy.
More links to Australian and international sites useful for family history research are found on our Links page.
Well researched and well told life-stories are also a welcome addition to our collections.   Contact us if you would like to propose lodging your collection or published family history with us.
A new education kit- Genealogy for Kids, a resource for primary and junior secondary Italian teachers can be downloaded here and the supplimentary resource, Italian Genealogy for Kids- An education kit for Italian Australian primary students and parents can be downloaded here.
