Introduction to Australian and New Zealand Land Records

Land research can tell us so much about how our ancestors lived and worked. It can help us find out the truth about stories we’ve heard, and can give us a much richer picture of our ancestors’ social and economic position. If they owned a house, business premises or rural property there are records to be found, many of which contain a wealth of information.

South Australian Lutherans in the early 20th Century (in development)

Due to their German heritage & association the SA Lutheran experience between 1900 and 1945 was one of trial and hardship. WWI produced suspicion and distrust towards them, resulting in persecution and sometimes internment. Between the wars was a period of unease and hope, as the fear of WWI dissipated and the Lutherans could once more celebrate their German traditions. This was not to last, however, for upon Hitler's attainment and consolidation of power, the old feelings towards the Lutherans returned, to be replicated (though to a smaller extent) during WWII.
