The Australia Day long weekend is almost here, and Ancestry Australia are wanting you to spend at least some of it researching your famly tree, which sounds reasonable to me, don’t you think?
Australians heritage ranges from convicts to bushrangers, from agricultural labourers to politicians, to free settlers and those assisted. Some were erly arrivals, others more recent. And they often started with nothing other than the goods they brought with them, and made a not just a house, and at least for the early settlers they were also pivotal in creating a town and a community as well.
