Anchors Aweigh


In 2019 as part of National Family History Month, the Monash Public Library Service Family History Group worked on a project called Anchors Aweigh. The stories detail how their ancestors made the voyage to Australia, whether on a sailing ship in the 1850s or a steam ship in the 1950s.

These stories were then formatted and exhibited at Glen Waverley, Mount Waverley, Mulgrave and Wheelers Hill libraries for the month of August 2019.  Stories will be available as an eBook through Borrowbox in 2021.
