So Harry set off in September 1852 from Plymouth at age 2½, with his parents and older sister Catherine, brother George and baby Tom, on the Parsee for Moreton Bay.

  • QFHS Journal on CD and Easy to Search

This CD covers to period from their first issue to 2010 and is fairly easy to search once you get the hang of it. It is certainly a much cheaper way to acquire these back issues and, of course, it saves a lot of space on the bookshelf.
