Welcome,
This website is to alert fellow historians and genealogists of Perry McIntyre’s publications and other activities including her involvement in research projects involving Irish-Australian immigration in the 19th century. Some of her work, written with Dr Liz Rushen, is published by Anchor Books Australia – www.anchorbooksaustralia.com.au. Anchor Books Australia has also published the essential book on Irish emigration to Australian in the 19th century, Farewell My Children by Dr Richard Reid. Perry was the historian on the Great Irish Famine Commemoration Committee (GIFCC) for many years, until recently. She is still working on the lives of these workhouse ‘orphans’ and welcomes contact with descendants. Please email her at perry@irelandhome.com.au
