Before the Internet era, if people wanted to search for information regarding their ancestral history
(family tree, marriage records, etc'), their options were quite limited, and in most cases they needed
to invest a lot of time and efforts.
You've probably forgotten that until a few years ago people had to hire someone (a professional genealogist
in most cases) in order to find information, or they had to call or pay an in-person visit to a federal
archive or governmental facilities, depending on the needed family record, and sometimes even needed to look
up for records that their local libraries had. Well, happily, these days are over.
Now, with the availability of the Internet today, people
can go to genealogical websites to request old records
and receive their desired files in seconds, this website
is no different, and it prides itself on being no
exception to offering this convenience for Australian people.

Whether you live in Australia or had an ancestor who
immigrated from Australia sometime in the past, one
of the numerous services that this website offers is
an Australian marriage index.
Marriage Contribution to Familial History
Whether you're working on your family's genealogy,
and you are unsure about an accuracy in a marriage
registry, or if you want to search
Australian marriage records
in order to invite your classmates, for example, to
a class reunion, this website can be a very convenient
and easy source for you to find new family names of
people you knew back then.
There are many amazing things one can find out when
running this online search, so don't be shocked if
you discover that one of
your family ancestors
was married at the age of 16, a century ago.
In order to legally have a
marriage in Australia
both parties must be 18 years of age. In 1961, an
Australia marriage law concerning the marriage of
minors was set at 16 for girls and 18 for boys.
Though the Sex discrimination amendment act of 1991
made people at the age of 18, the requirement for
both parties with exceptional cases being granted by the court.
When two people marry, they not only marry each other
but they also "marry" their family lines together. This
makes for a whole new added batch to each of the familial
genealogy and both lines are also the history of any
children that they may decide to have. Especially if
marriages are foreign or interracial, the two lines
also often add a whole new culture and community to
each other, and that's the beauty of this new era.
