This guide specifically focuses on researching ancestors that emigrated to Australia from countries other than the United Kingdom and lists the key resources and records available for researchers.
The SLV states that "the Researching your multicultural ancestor guide is not a definitive guide that lists specific resources for individual countries, rather it demonstrates how to start your research using resources available at the State Library of Victoria. It also provides advice on how to locate and access overseas collections and repositories." The guide is divided into the following sections -
- Research steps
- Finding books
- Immigration, emigration & naturalisation
- Australian archives
- eResources & websites
- Family history & historical societies
- Overseas resources
- Why can’t I find them?
