      Hi Jazaboy85, none of my Johnston relations lived in NT so can't help you there. 
      The best place to start is with living family relatives and gather all the information you can get from them. Phone calls and letters only cost a small amount and can result in lots of information to get you started.  Find out how long they have lived in the NT, where did they come from originally, where did they land in Australia.  The Web Site for NT Births, Marriages and Deaths is:
      On birth certificates you'll get dates, birth place and the name of parents.  On marriage certificates you'll get place of birth and maiden names.  On death certificates you'll get death place, children's names etc and keep working back from there, but that usually involves paying money for certificates.
      Perhaps there is a Geneology Society in Darwin that may be able to help or there are a number of Forums you could join to ask for help.  http://www.rootschat.com/ is a good one.
      Cheers, Kevin
