My father's Scottish family emigrated to the Colony of Victoria in the 1850s. Some of them stayed there and others came on later to New Zealand. But family also went back there so that I have many connections over the ditch.

I would like to join the Australia Project. I have six convicts in my father's ancestry and would like to add parents from my GEDCOM for Mary Pardoe (my 5th great grandmother), a convict on the Lady Juliana.

I would like to join this project. Two of my 2x-great-grandparents were Australian; one was the daughter of free settlers and the other was possibly descended from convicts.

Hello team, I am Australian and I would like to join. My interest would be NSW. I am quite new to genealogy. If I have anything notable to state, it would be that I live in Paris and perhaps this could mean helping with translations or even graveyard visits.
