Do you have Australasian Ancestors?

To celebrate National Family History Month in Australasia, the Federation of Family History Societies has updated Our Australasian Really Useful Information Leaflet. You can download it for free, here:
http://www.ffhs.org.uk/tips/RUL-Aus-2017-0809.pdf

The FFHS has produced the leaflet in association with the Society of Australian Genealogists and Australasian Federation of Family History Organisations.

The leaflet focuses on how to research your ancestors if you live in Australasia. It is also a great resource for UK family historians who may have had ancestors who went to Australasia, either because of forced transportation or due to emigration.

The leaflet gives a long list of websites and has a how-to guide. It also lists family history societies that can help with your research.
