Aliens Index 1914-1918

ALIENS INDEX 1914-1918.

This is a listing of people mentioned in the Index and Registers of Victoria Police correspondence, under a heading firstly of ‘Commonwealth’ and, from 1916, under a heading of ‘Aliens’. It covers foreign-born people who were obliged to register under the Aliens Acts of 1914 (Germans, Austrians, Turks).  In 1916 The Act was expanded to include basically anyone either not British or Australian born. Thus natives from friendly nations, such as America, were also obliged to register.  The listing also covers those people who wrote in to complain about various Aliens, or report suspicious happenings. The index includes a location and a nationality cross-reference. In all, there are over 7,700 entries.
