The Jul-Aug 2013 edition (issue 17) also includes:

  • how land title records in Queensland led to the discovery of 300 family photographs;
  • a case of false identity that will have you looking at 19th-century passenger lists in a new light;

  2. John, You are a worthy inclusion on the list. So much of what you write has relevance for the many Australians who have Anglo-Celtic ancestry.
