Australia Gotoarrow.png Minorities

Over the years many ethnic minorities, including Jews, Italians, and Chinese, have immigrated to Australia. Some of your ancestors may come from these ethnicities. To learn about the ethnic, racial, and religious groups of your ancestors, you might study a history of Jews in Australia, Italians in New South Wales, or Chinese in the gold fields of Victoria. This historical background can help you identify where your ancestors lived and when they lived there, where they migrated, and the types of records they might be listed in.
