Here we have two books on one CD. Written by Graham Jaunay in 1989, with a supplement published in 1992, the first book gives an account of a family's movement from England to South Australia in 1847 and the establishment of their lives and their families in their new state and country.
It focuses on the stories of George and Abigail Johnson and George and Phoebe Dickerson (George's mother and her husband) and their families, and also includes detailed information on many other families linked to these people, such as the Cannells and Spooners. The story of these people includes many photos, documents, family trees down to the present day, a detailed index of about 3300 names, and accounts of interesting exerts from life during the mid 1800's.
The supplement published later follows on from the first volume and includes many names not in the first ... both are reproduced here on the one CD for easy reference.
