It is a few months later than orignally planned, but I guarantee you it’s worth the wait … and it is now finally here …

What am I talking about? The ‘History & Genealogy 2011: Australia & New Zealand‘ Handbook.

The latest book from Unlock The Past started out as an idea to put together a  publication with Australian and New Zealand related genealogy and history themed articles, together with a directory of organisations such as libraries, archives, societies, museums, professional researchers,  booksellers and more.

With 60+ articles on all sorts of topics, and a directory listing over 1700 organisations, this is the most comprehensive all-in-one guide available for researchers of Australian and New Zealand history, and thats without mentioning the vouchers section which can save you hundreds of dollars.

Just a few of the topics covered include:

– How to Achieve a Unique Family Interview
– Buried Downunder and Other Australian Projects
– Biographical Database of Australia
– Researching Hawkesbury Families
– Queensland Pioneer Families 1859-1901
– Wills and Probate Records: Victoria
– Who Were the Enrolled Pensioner Guards
– Births, Deaths and Marriages Index: Australia and New Zealand
– Maps for Genealogists
– The Bombing of Broome
– Choosing the Right Software
– A Three Generation Passion for Oral History
– One Name and One Place Studies: What Help They Are to Me?
– National Wills Index
– Immigration to New Zealand
– Let’s Make a Start: New Zealand Websites to Get You Up and Running!
