Issue 28 of Australia’s premier genealogy and history magazine, Inside History Magazine has hit the newsagent shelves and the letterboxes of subscribers, and it is another issue of cover-to-cover reading.
In this one Inside History Magazine chatted to Sir Tony Robinson while he was in Australia for his “Tour of Duty” discovering Australia’s hidden wartime stories around the country. We learn about what life was really like in an English workhouse – beyond the stereotype. Stephen Orr explores the iconic Tea and Sugar train of yesteryear and its cross-country rides across the Nullarbor which was a lifeline to settlers in the outback.
Carole Riley looks at why land title documents are such an invaluable resource for family historians, and Shauna Hicks not only helps readers decode asylum records, she explains how to use them and and access those closed to the public!
The reading continues with 5 must-do historical walks around Australia, and the “What’s New Online” section contains a whopping 95 new genealogy resources which will have you racing to your computer to check them all out!!
And if that isn’t enough, you’ll even find out about …
