Finding your mob

Researching Aboriginal family history at the Victorian Archives Centre

Last updated:

April 14, 2020

Public Record Office Victoria’s Koorie Records Unit has produced Finding your mob for Aboriginal people who are researching their Victorian family history. 

Finding Your Mob describes the types of records held in the collections of both Public Record Office Victoria and the National Archives of Australia and offers advice about how to get started with family history research. It also explains the Koorie Reference Services available to Aboriginal people.  Online tools and resources are listed together with other organisations that may be able to help people reconnect with their history. 

This is a new edition of this publication, updated in August 2017. To download a PDF version, simply click on the top left arrow or via this link.
