Searching Overseas: A Guide to Family History Sources for Australians and New Zealanders by Susan Pedersen. 'Trace your own family history from Australia or New Zealand rather than paying for research into overseas records. This not only saves money, but also offers the pleasure of the 'hunt' and the thrill of fitting the ancestry jigsaw together for oneself. Copies of numerous overseas records are either held locally or are easily obtainable. This guide shows where to find the records - both the original documents overseas, and local copies - with addresses, access, current charges both on the spot and by post, free services, where and how to write for help, short-cuts, and how to best use the records to save time and money, and to overcome problems. Overseas records of most interest to Australians and New Zealanders are described in detail, including those of convicts, soldiers and seamen. The book concentrates on UK sources, but the availability of records worldwide and the methods used to locate and view them locally, are also included.' The book has light to medium general wear but remains tight and bright.
