Look forward to working with you,

I guess you have read the Australian Wikitree page: https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Space:Prussian_and_German_Settlement_in_Queensland
I am interested in the different reasons German families left Prussia.
Kind regards, Steve Thomas - Team leader of Prussian Settlement in Australia.
I am curious whether the Prussians who settled the Darling Downs came from a particular region or Province. Your G2G question about Baalau grabbed my attention. I don't often see references to locations that far East, deep inside modern Poland. I speculate that the nineteenth century was a period of rising nationalism. Polish and German speaking families might have comfortable living next to each other around 1800, but life might have got more uncomfortable towards 1900. An opportunity to leave and migrate to Australia would be more tempting. If I am talking absolute rubbish, then please advise me. :)
Welcome back to the Germany Project! I've awarded you a project member badge. When you have a chance, please do the following:

I would like to know if the Doring's in your Watchlist are actualy spelled with a 'o' or should it be a 'ö' on the asci code, ö = alt+0246 .
Noticed on the Australian Project Page that you were interested in getting a project going for Aboriginal terminology. Still interested? Be great to have this as a sub project of the Indigenous Australians Project.

Adding my name to hopefully volunteer for the project. Have been playing with my family tree for a few years and one day hope to really spend some proper time on it. For now I would love to share and link in where appropriate.
I noticed you uploaded a GEDCOM. The help pages give lots of information about the process, but I recommend starting with 'Before you import a GEDCOM' (http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Before_importing_a_GEDCOM) Another very helpful link, a step-by-step process, which includes screen-shots is (http://www.geneamusings.com/2013/12/adding-early-seaver-generations-to.html)
Best of luck!
