Australia is like Canada .............

a) records are kept province by province (or state by state), so you have to know where someone lived.

b) both countries have MUCH stricter privacy rules on when information such as bmds can be released to the public.



so, no matter which genealogical site you go to, you will find it more difficult to find and access records within the last 100 years.

FMP does have an Australian site, which seems OK.
