    BOOK - Where Do I Start?: A Brief Guide to Researching Your Family in Australia and New Zealand
    By Shauna Hicks
    Published by Unlock the Past, Australia, 2015
    Printed and bound in Canada by GlobalGenealogy.com Inc., Milton, 2015

    Where do I start? is perhaps one of the most frequently asked questions from people interested in learning more about their family history. The author, Shauna Hicks decided to write this research guide to present together in one place methodology and resources that she mentioned in her presentations to societies and libraries. Using various internet resources you can usually built a family pedigree quickly going back several generations. Then you confirm what you discovered and spend more time filling in the details and getting to know your ancestors lives and the communities in which they lived. It is definitely not all online and this guide highlights some of the archives and libraries that you will become familiar with as you research your family history. As a beginner's guide it has been hard to keep it simple as there are just so many resources that can be used for genealogy and family history. While Shauna has tried not to overwhelm those just starting out, she has also tried to make people aware that there are many ways to research and record your family history. It is a learning process and you will acquire new skills and knowledge as you progress. This book is the first step to discovering your family history. 72 pages.

    BOOK - Discover Your Sporting Ancestors: It was Not All Work and No Play!
    By Shauna Hicks
    Published by Unlock the Past, Australia, 2015
    Printed and bound in Canada by GlobalGenealogy.com Inc., Milton, 2015

    Have you ever thought about what sporting activities your ancestors might have been involved with? Were they on the local cricket or football team, or did they play darts at the local pub? Were they keen anglers, swimmers or lifesavers? What about horse racing or regular track and field events? Perhaps they were good administrators and served on sporting committees rather than playing themselves. Men and women were both involved with sports and who can forget their own school sports. Many communities had a local cricket, football or other sporting team and in some cases memorabilia and/or photographs have been handed down to alert us to an ancestor's involvement in a sporting activity. We may simply discover someone's involvement when searching newspapers or perhaps there is a mention of a sporting club in a funeral notice. How do you discover more about what they did? This guide shows you where to look for more information and how to make the most of searching websites, newspapers, original records and published sources. ISBN 9781925323047     More Information

    BOOK - Arrivals in Australia from 1788
    By Kerry Farmer
    Published by Unlock the Past, Australia, 2015
    Printed and bound in Canada by GlobalGenealogy.com Inc., Milton, 2015

    This book introduces the history and records of migration to Australia from 1788. Migrating to a new country was one of the most dramatic life changes anyone undertook and it certainly affected the lives of their descendants. Investigating their journey is a key part of your family history research. However immigration records in Australia are not all held in one place - when, where and how they arrived affect where (and whether) records of their arrival can be found. Understanding categories of arrivals and the immigration schemes in place as well as the general principles of where documents are held, will give you confidence that you have looked in all the right places. 140 pages.

    By D. Parker
    Published by Unlock the Past, Australia, 2014
    Printed and bound in Canada by GlobalGenealogy.com Inc., Milton, 2015

    Apart from the usual bdm records, as well as directory or electoral roll listings, researchers of Australian ancestors should consider using church records, and not just for baptisms, marriages or burials. If you had ancestors who attended a particular church there's a good chance they'll be mentioned in church bulletins somewhere along the line. This particular book describes the records specific to the Baptist denomination in Australia, together with where they are, and how to access them. Finally, this guidebook covers information about other sources of historical information on the Baptist denomination, listings about other Baptist groups and also some information about related organisations which may provide helpful background for researchers.

    BOOK - My Ancestor was in an Asylum: Brief Guide to Asylum Records in Australia and New Zealand
    By S. Hicks
    Published by Unlock the Past, Australia, 20??
    Printed and bound in Canada by GlobalGenealogy.com Inc., Milton, 2015

    The author's interest in asylum records was sparked when she found some of her own ancestors had spent time in asylums, or had died in an asylum. Asylums were not only used to house the poor, the aged, the frail and those who had no one to care for them. Surviving archival records provide a wealth of genealogical information not usually found in government records including information on patients' physical description, personal family details, health information and sometimes even a photograph. If you have lost an ancestor, or simply misplaced them for a few years, then asylum records may be worth investigating. This guide in an excellent introduction to resources available and how to use these resources effectively. ISBN 9781921956348     More Information

    Printed and bound in Canada by GlobalGenealogy.com Inc., Milton, 2015

    Boer War official records were lost or destroyed while those associated with World War One were collected with reverence. Even today there is a continuing struggle to have the conflict recognised by a National Boer War Memorial. Yet there is a recent growth in interest from genealogists which has helped sustain, indeed revive Australia's prominent part in the Boer War. The task of researching ancestors in the Boer War has long been frustrated by a lack of awareness and an apparent paucity of records. This is not so. 'War on the Veldt' opens the doors to successfully finding Australian Boer War ancestors. ISBN 978192195256     More Information

    Published by Unlock the Past, Australia, 2011
    Printed and bound in Canada by GlobalGenealogy.com Inc., Milton, 2015

    This book is written from an Australian perpective with most information pertaining to Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom. Death certificates are an important document in family research, both to 'kill off' our ancestors and to determine their cause of death. This is especially so for people who are interested in establishing their medical genealogy. However at times it seems as though the cause of death is in a foreign language. 'Death Certificates and Archaic Medical Terms' examines the history and evolution of death certificates. When did they start? What is on them? What were the legal requirements? What does it mean when a death is certified? Why aren't all deaths certified? It also gives meanings to a number of archaic terms found on death certificates such as cachexia, breakbone fever, byssinosis, coeliac passion, dipsomania, inanition and Potter's Rot.

GERMANY / GERMAN / GERMANIC

    BOOK - Researching in German Civil and Church Records
    By E. Kopittke
    Published by Unlock the Past, Australia, 2015
    Printed and bound in Canada by GlobalGenealogy.com Inc., Milton, 2015

    Eric Kopittke answers the question 'How can I obtain a birth or marriage certificate from Germany for an immigrant ancestor?' What the new researcher may not realise is that in Germany the system of births, marriage and deaths by civil authorities, and the issue of associated certificates, has some significant differences to the system that the researcher may be used to. Prior to the introduction of civil registration, churches kept registers of baptisms, marriages and burials, and such church records may allow the researcher to follow the family back for several hundred years. This book is a practical guide that, with the aid of many illustrations, will allow the reader to become familiar with the types of information available on German civil certificates of birth, marriage and death and church records of baptism, marriage and burial. The book then explains how to access these records. ISBN 9781925323085     More Information

As there was little material available in English on how to research in Germany, Society members had to start from scratch when researching Germans who settled in UK. How To Research your German Ancestors outlines how to undertake research into German ancestors in the United Kingdom and in the different parts of German-speaking Europe. It is based on over 25 years' practical experience in advising members and undertaking research and has also been fully revised from earlier editions to take account of what is now available on the internet.
