40.6% German!: how I discovered that, and what I now know about my German ancestry

Three of the speaker's four grandparents have German ancestry (one is French Huguenot/German), and this presentation will outline where they all came from, how and when they came to Australia, and some interesting highlights (a murder, a suicide, a scalding to death). It will feature how information (Australian and German sources) was found, and how they have contributed to Australia, though none are famous. It will also explore the question of why the speaker's German heritage was hidden or forgotten. The two areas of settlement for were south-east Queensland (Toowoomba) and the Macleay River (Kempsey).
