The Half a World Away Blog site is an extension of the online exhibition website for Half a World Away ~ Postwar Migration to the Orange District 1948-1965.
Sharing stories, memories of photos and migration heritage objects is often a good way to start documenting your family’s migration story, and handing it on to the next generation. In addition, stories around objects and photos are a powerful way to reveal sometimes forgotten aspects of migration heritage.
Personal accounts of migration and settlement in Australia are an important part of Australia’s history, and of regional and family histories. They are treasured memories to hand on from one generation to the next, and they add the voice of real experience to the texture of larger national histories.
We invite you to share your stories, photos, objects and memories on this website.
