Searching for Surnames Downunder

In addition to looking at the major online resources for finding surnames down under (with a bias towards Australia and a peek at New Zealand) we will, in this session, visit some lesser known but very useful databases. In this presentation Jill will use, as an example, her fledgling CurryAus surname study. This was presented as part of The Surname Society's inaugural virtual conference on March 12, 2016.
