So you've discovered a Chinese ancestor, what next?
Dr Sophie Couchman, member of the Chinese Australian Family Historians of Victoria and former curator at the Chinese Museum, will offer some tips and tricks for researching your Chinese Australian family history and also help you understand what their lives might have been like living in Australia. Uncovering the history of your Chinese Australian ancestors requires you to be creative in the ways in which you interrogate historical records and prepared to learn a bit about how Chinese language works and how government legislation might have affected their businesses and travel. Perhaps you're interested to know more about what their lives might have been like in rural southern China. Drawing of real examples, Sophie will touch on all these issues and more and is happy to answer any questions you might have.When
