Many immigrant ancestors moved about after they landed in their new country, making them difficult to trace. Traditional means of searching cannot guarantee results so we must look to alternative resources including diaries, letters, books, reports of government enquiries, post office directories, electoral rolls and newspaper accounts to locate them.

Join Stephanie Ryan, our Senior Librarian Family History, as she discusses how you can explore these possibilities to track down immigrant ancestors and find out about some surprises in undertaking this type of search.
