Take a journey to
discover your family history
Everyone has a family history, whether they know or have even thought about it. Everyone has: 2 parents, 4 grandparents, 8 great grandparents and so on. Do you know all their names? Were your ancestors immigrants or Aboriginal Australians? When did your immigrant ancestors come to Australia? What countries did they come from? Why did they come? What ship did they come on? Where did they first settle? What did they do? Do you know about their war service (most of us have ancestors who served)? Do you have any famous ancestors or distant cousins? Or infamous ones? Do you have ‘Australian royalty’ (convict ancestors)? The chances are you have if your ancestors came here 150 years or more ago. The study of families and the tracing of their lineages and history is known as genealogy.
