“Convicts, Immigrants and ANZACS” leads the beginning genealogist on a historical journey through the difficult times of early settlement and a young country at war. It explores the repositories of the convict, immigration and military records of Australia and the UK in light of the era in which they were created and the difficulties of preserving archival materials under these conditions.
While it is created as an accompaniment to the “Family History; A Different Focus Workshops’, the workbook stands alone as an invaluable guide to the how, when, where, what and why of Family History for the beginner.
