For more than 40 years 'Compiling Your Family History' has helped many thousands of Australians begin the exciting search for their origins. First published in 1965, this has been 'the' guide for all wishing to start their research in Australia.

Created as a guide for people beginning genealogy, and who know little or nothing of their family history, but who would like to document the stories that they have heard about relating to the origins of their family.

Updated, and now in its 22nd edition, this booklet still covers the basics on how to get started, how to fill in a pedigree chart and a family group sheet, it covers the major types of record available as well as where you can find them. Information is provided on the major archive repositories in each state, and you will find numerous website addresses, including some for those researching overseas. Copies of a Family Group Sheet, 4 Generation Pedigree Chart, and Search Results charts are included for you to photocopy and use.

Ideal for those just beginning, this book is filled with sound advice, sources and ideas to help you find out about your ancestors.
