Makers of the Future
Our ancestral families that helped shape our present days
by Robert Cowan and Anne Rainger.
Makers of the Future introduces individuals and families that make our family tree. The book starts when each family or an individual first appear in a written record.
The first chapter is set out geographically by country, county, town or village showing the many different places where families originated and in some cases showing how each one survived in more difficult times than we live today.
Where records have been found, we show why individuals or whole families decided to make the journey to the new colonies or nation of Australia. The book includes the experiences of those who lived through World Wars.
