Australian family history buffs are going to get their genealogy fix when a new tv program goes to air.

Apart from the Australian edition of Who Do You Think You Are? and the various UK and US family history related shows that we get … there is new Australian TV documentary series coming that aims to help find long lost relatives, and they are currently looking for participants.

If you are desperate to trace a lost family member and have been searching with no success, they would like to hear from you – and perhaps they can help you (at no cost to you).

The press release states …

“We understand that this is a very emotional quest and we will always be very sensitive to seekers who respond to us.

The programme will follow the stories of people who have, for one reason or another, experienced long term separation from members of their family and are seeking to be reunited with them.

The aim of the programme is to help people who are struggling to find enough information to move closer to a reunion.  The programme hopes to track down lost relatives and follow the stories from the search through to the reunion.”

Please note this request relates to the assistance of the location of family members ONLY.  If you are searching for someone who is not a family member, please do not complete the form.
