I find it typical of most things American that a site like this positions the US as the center of the earth. All data, new information updates etc are purely American census stats ....... I guess it stands to reason that Americans are the greatest users of the site but there is disproportionate investment in new features that would benefit Australians for instance. Either that or I haven't been able to access/find it.
Actually MyHeritage is run by an Israeli company (so I believe). This site is much better that ancestry.com if you are searching for european relatives because it has it has a good multi-lingual interface that europeans find easier to use. I have succeeded in linking up with several distant cousins on this site.However you are correct in that most of the genealogy sites around are targeted towards Americans/Canadians. They have a much larger population than Australia. Ancestry.com has a lot more Australian specific information on it. However for Australian genealogy, Your best bet for Australian research is to check out the Public Records office website and BDM website in your state of interest and join your local state genealogy organisation. Victoria PROV and the Victorian genealogy society in particuar are very good. And of course TROVE is probably the best free source of Australian newspapers around.
