Emigration to Australia
As I wrote in a previous entry my parents emigrated to Australia in 1967. After mum's death my brother and I were going through her papers and found the following documents.
The first is the identification document they were issued with, instead of a passport, which allowed them to enter Australia. They went on the assisted £10 emigration package.
In 1995 mum applied for Australian Citizenship. Not sure why she waited 26 years before doing so.
This is her receiving the certificate after, I presume, swearing an oath.
