A decade ago, the University of Tasmania’s history discipline decided to diversify its undergraduate offerings to attract more students. At the time, it was clear that family history had become one of the most in vogue pastimes in the western world. Recently in the United States of America, for example, family history ranked second only to gardening in popularity. It therefore seemed a fairly obvious choice to create a new undergraduate unit focused on family history.
