  1. Queensland here we come...If they only knew their impact for generations to come!

    Posted by Dorelle Stubbings on 27th Nov 2019

    A eye opening edition of how my ancestors survived the journey from Ireland on the Beejapore arriving in Brisbane in 1863. With the loss of two young children their determination to seek a new life in Australia was instrumental in how I am here today and able to seek out and research their lives.
