Mining Ancestors

In an earlier blog, This Week in History, I mentioned how the Gympie gold rush led to my Victorian families moving up to Queensland. I have a wide interest in mining with various ancestors involved in tin, copper, gold and coal mining in all states of Australia except the Northern Territory and Tasmania. I have even travelled to all of the places my families lived. Today I  started a discussion forum on Genealogy Wise for those with Australian mining ancestors and I invite people to share their mining stories so that we can all learn how best to trace these sometimes elusive ancestors.
