Useful Links

While the Chinese Heritage of Australian Federation Project has been able to recover and identify many historic resources and records it is a monumental task to try and document them all. This page provides links to the webpages of organisations for researchers to continue the process of uncovering historical material for themselves.

Many different types of organisations hold records relating to the Chinese and their descendants in Australia. These organisations include:

  • state and local historical societies
  • national, state and local government archives;
  • National Trust and state government heritage bodies
  • national and local genealogical societies
  • state, national and local libraries,
  • university archives
  • national, state and local museums
  • national, state and local galleries
  • community, organisation and business archives, including church and temple archives
