Welcome to the Christmas Island Message Board.

Christmas island is a non-self governing territory of Australia, situated in the Indian Ocean, south of Indonesia. The official language is English although Chinese and Malay are also spoken.

Named in 1643 for the day of its discovery, the island was annexed and settlement began by the UK in 1888. Phosphate mining began in the 1890s with the UK transferring sovereignty to Australia in 1958. Almost two-thirds of the island has been declared a national park.

This message board is for those researching their island genealogy. Please feel free to post to this forum your family history queries and associated research.
