Immigration to Australia
« on: Monday 12 August 19 07:37 BST (UK) »
Hi
I am new to Roots Chat
My great grandfather came out from Ireland to Queensland in 1879
He seemed to acquire a dairy farm on the Darling Downs
Does anyone have any ideas for me?
Thank you
Julie

So, apart from the information already listed, was there something in particular you wanted to know about the family?
