RATIONALE: soc.genealogy.australia+nz
Genealogy is defined as the investigation of family pedigrees. The practise
of genealogy is commonly termed 'Family History Research', and as such
expands the meaning to include a study of human experience throughout the
generations, regardless of origin.

Family history research is not limited to any one country of origin nor is
it confined to ethnic bounds or national borders, but the research is
dependant upon history and records found within national systems and
regional boundaries. Those records can be State, religious, civil, military,
private, public, monumental, personal or other such records, most of which
may be found in the country wherein they were originated. It then seems
logical to provide an avenue of research and discussion within a forum
particular to any one country, or group of related countries.

Australia and New Zealand share similar cultural, historical and political
developments. The history of this development is unique to these two nations
with respect to the time, geographic location and, in the early years of
colonisation, isolation. Since settlement there has been continuous
migration between these countries, and from other countries. In 1982,
Australia and New Zealand ranked second and third in the world, respectively,
for the number of genealogical society members per head of population.

Because there is much in common between Australia and NZ genealogy and
research interests, it seems reasonable to conduct discussions in the one
group. Separate groups can be formed if and as traffic and interest warrant.
