Searching Australian cousins?

Do you have relatives who went to Australia? I do. It seemed to be a part of a family spread your bets strategy as siblings went to the USA as well as stayed in the UK. I've remarked before on the online resources provided by the National Library of Australia, especially digitized newspapers. Now they have a simple gateway to books, journals, magazines, diaries, letters and newspapers. Find it at: http://trove.nla.gov.au

Thanks to Christine Jackson for the tip.

While I'm blogging about Australian resources, Ancestry recently added Queensland, Australia, Passenger Lists, 1848-1912, and updated the Australia and New Zealand, along with most other, Obituary Collections.

The Australian site and the ancestry collection will be very helpful for searching "missing relatives" in Ireland. There are no more Bustard family people in Fermanagh, and only a few in Donegal, but already I have found someone in the Australian newspaper collection who was an artist in Brisbane. This will be fun to try! Anne S.
