Findmypast.com wants your GI Brides or Australian emigrants stories

A chance to share your emigration stories...!

"Findmypast.com would love to hear from you if you have made successful family history finds using the outbound UK passenger lists on findmypast.com and if you would be happy for your story to appear in the national and regional press.

If you would like to share your discovery of an ancestor who emigrated by passenger ship to the USA or Canada after marrying an American or Canadian serviceman, or if you have discovered family who emigrated to Australia by ship between 1890 and 1960, please email your story to casestudies@findmypast.com with the word "Appeal" in the subject line by Monday 24 March.

We are looking for people who would be happy for the stories they send to be used in national or local newspapers or who would be happy to be contacted by a journalist for an interview about their family history experiences.

Please only send in stories that you are happy to be used in the public domain and if you are happy for your name to be used in the media. If you are also willing to be contacted by the media direct, please provide a daytime contact phone number."
