Australian First Families 2001

This database was contributed to by genealogists who embraced the Internet in the 1990's. It was funded by the State Library of Victoria to mark the Centenary of Federation. 

The 'first family' is the earliest person in a particular family known to have lived in Australia. The database is now closed. What a wonderful idea it is. Unfortunately, the database came foul of privacy laws and so its read only but is still valuable.
