Description
 
We apologise for the continued delays over this title. It will be published as soon as we can find the time to finalise it - hopefully by mid 2014.

NOTE: the change of name has been made to avoid the mis-conception that is superseded by subsequent volumes. This is not the case. Nearly 80% of any earlier editions - the articles - remains unique. Each new edition has an entirely new set of articles. The directory section will be updated each year.

Volume Two contains 65 all-new, useful articles, as well as a directory of organisations and product/service suppliers, and adverts for organisations and product/service suppliers. Printed full colour. thoughout, this quality book is a reference work you'll refer constantly to - particularly the directory.

It is not a HOW-TO book, but rather a collection of articles on a whole range of topics relating to Australia and New Zealand history and genealogy. Everything from gypsies and genealogy, Catch them when they're young, Circus history, Convict applications to marry, Copyright, DNA, Magical memory triggers, Oral history, Web traps, Starting a blog, Treasures in the parish chest ... and so much more.

A valuable reference work, not only for the content of the articles, but also for the directory which contains over 1800 people and organisations around Australian and New Zealand in the history and genealogy field. If you are an individual, society, archive, library, or an organisation interested in either history or genealogy, you will want this annual Unlock the Past publication in your possession.
