Social History: Researching Displaced People
Globally there are 80 million displaced people – mind blowing!
In this tutorial, Julie Goucher describes how displacement has occurred during the 19th and 20th centuries and how family historians might discover their displaced ancestors.
Julie explores: what displacement means; its causes; and the historical context that might indicate that someone was displaced.
Julie also covers what to focus on when you need to research those that were displaced: the organisations; the records, archives, and resources to use; and some tips for progressing your research on displaced people.
Julie includes some case studies to illustrate what you can do, including:
- the Rohingya people, from 2014;
- Europe at the end of WWII;
-the Far East at the end of WWII;
- Germans, Italian and Japanese in Australia, and Japanese POWs in Russia during WWII;
- overseas prisoners 1803-1815.
There will be plenty of time for a Questions session.
