This book introduces the history and records of migration to Australia from 1788.
Migrating to a new country was one of the most dramatic life changes anyone undertook and it certainly affected the lives of their descendants. Investigating their journey is a key part of your family history research.
However immigration records in Australia are not all held in one place - when, where and how they arrived affect where (and whether) records of their arrival can be found. Understanding categories of arrivals and the immigration schemes in place as well as the general principles of where documents are held, will give you confidence that you have looked in all the right places.
This title is NOT a listing of names and their arrival details, but rather a research guide to direct you to archives, respositories and others that hold records relating to immigration.

Not what I expected.
A great little resource which I am sure I will use quite a lot. Larger print would have been nice but that would have increased the size of the book. I could have purchased the E Book but prefer to have a book I can carry with me that does not require batteries to read. I am very impressed with the service and will definitely purchase other books in the future.
Anything written by Kerry Farmer is worth having in your family history library.
