Walked, swam, flew or came by space ship?
Australia, from its first inhabitants, is a land of migrants. These ancestors of ours arrived here in a variety of ways; the aborigines may have walked across land bridges, some swam from the islands to the north, others arrived by plane.  Some ancestors are so elusive that you feel sure they arrived by space ship.  The great majority, however, arrived by boat or ship, from all corners of the globe and thankfully, records have been kept for many of these arrivals.  Book this course to find out what records are available for you to search.  You may even find that your ancestor wasn't an alien but travelled here in a more traditional manner! 


Our wide-ranging programme of classes, seminars, education sessions and hands on workshops are open to anyone interested in family history. Check out the Events calendar to see what's happening the world of family history. Book an event today!
