Migration Categories to Australia

This page outlines the categories that can be added to profiles of people who migrated to Australia from other countries around the world.

Any applicable categories already created, can be added by finding them with the category picker tool in "Edit" mode on a profile. If, after reading this page, you would like us to add a migration category for you that has not already been created, go to Categories Waiting to be Added or Renamed and post a link to the profile, to which you want the category added, plus any information you have for the category, under the heading, "Categories to be Added".

Global Migration Category Structure

Categories for migration from other countries to Australia will follow the naming guidelines and 5-level structure outlined in Migration Category Structure. Ideally, profiles are placed in the level 5 (landing level) category, but may be placed in level 4 categories when specific information is unknown. Profiles should not be placed in levels 1-3 categories.

All categories should have the correct Migration Category Info Box (CIB), which adds the correct parent categories to the category.

The following document is a simplified overview of Emigration from the States from the German Confederation. https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Space:German_Diaspora:_Emigration_during_the_mid-19th_Century.

I support the category structure in this page showing the German Confederation up to 1870. The picture is not very accurate, but it is easier to explain the changes in history rather than create multiple categories for all the variations.
