Australia’s Golden Outback, in partnership with the Eastern Goldfields Historical Society, has launched an ancestry campaign encouraging Australians (and internationals) with a connection to WA’s Goldfields to discover their family history. It’s estimated that around 120,000 people from more than 30 countries flocked to the region during the gold-rush era – including former US President Herbert Hoover. Since then, there’s been more than 125 years of continual gold production.
Perth resident Toni Barnett answered Australia’s Golden Outback’s call to be part of its mini-documentary to uncover her family story – watch the eight-minute documentary here, and be inspired to find your links.
