Tracing the ancestry

Barossa Valley area

The first wave of German settlement in Australia began in 1838. German was first spoken in the Barossa Valley
in the 1840s, when German Lutheran settlers from Prussia arrived in the area.(Wiki)
Here we see the possibly great-grandchild of one of these settlers discovering the gravesite of her ancestor.
