The Ancestry Digitisation Grant Program for 2023 is now open for submissions.

It’s that time again! The Ancestry Grant Program is open for submissions.

Each year, a total of three digitisation grants will be awarded within AU & NZ (combined). Once the grant recipients have been selected, scanning will begin at the earliest opportunity.

The program aims to encourage and allow holders of historical content collections that are in an original format (of any size) to achieve a digitisation outcome that may otherwise be difficult.

Projects to date have included occupational records, land records, military records, newspaper collections and various registers. Some of these collections have been large, others have been very small. In either case, I highly recommend that you contact me via the email below and we can discuss the collection further.

Your feedback and engagement with this program will ensure its suitability and sustainability going forward. There’s a near-endless volume of historical content that could benefit from being preserved digitally, and some of that will be sitting with you or within locations you know of – so please use this program and share your feedback with me.

You’re also more than welcome to send this notification to other archives or locations that may find it useful.

Submissions are welcomed, and the current deadline is August 31st 2023, shortly after which the grants will be awarded.
