"Researching Commonwealth Ancestors" - Leader: Pam Goddard


Booking Code: 1929

Were your ancestors Early Settlers, prisoners sent to Australia, or maybe you are looking for a family member who was sent abroad as a 'Home Child' to one of the Commonwealth countries, or family who emigrated to Australia and New Zealand under the Assisted Passage Migration Scheme known as the 10 pound POMS. This workshop will cover all these areas and many more. Using many free databases along with a large number of records on FindMyPast and Ancestry, tracing family can often be quite simple and if you are lucky you may be able to track down living relatives. The countries covered will be Canada, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa.
