Estonian Archives in Australia launches brand new website

We are very happy to announce our new Estonian Archives in Australia website at

While we are always happy to have visitors we realise that not everyone can visit the Archive in person. We are happy to be able to share our treasures with you online.

We have not updated our old site much since it was originally launched back in 2001 and a great deal has changed over the last 20 years! We have a brand new logo thanks to Lachlan Bell and a new website courtesy of Kristi Barrow.

Catalogues of Personal Papers and the In Memoriam notices are currently online.

Meet the Team introduces the people who make all this possible, devoting one day a week to sorting, arranging and describing the collected material and finally preparing the catalogues which make access to the collections easier.

We start with our current exhibition The Great Escape 1944 but plan to add more of our past exhibitions so that we can all share the history and culture of the Estonian community.
