Be part of history!

Say YES to question 60 on census night 9th August, 2011.


On census night you will have the choice to have your personal information made public after 99 years. To have your information saved you must say yes to question 60. The census is a valuable record of Australian family history. It is the only public record that comes close to recording the name, address and occupation of every Australian. No other sources, such as electoral rolls and birth certificates achieve this. Millions of Australians are not on the rolls and millions more were not born here.

Future family historians will thank you!

  1. Thanks for posting this. It causes me pain to think of all the ancestors who I wouldn’t know about if it wasn’t for census records. 🙂
