German Settlers’ Trades and Skills in Colonial South Australia

As the power of German trade guilds declined, artisans migrated to South Australia in search of a livelihood. German archival documents detail their training and experiences. The skilled carpenters, stonemasons, shoemakers, butchers, midwives, blacksmiths, gardeners and servants settled in local communities. Family stories reveal the place of their skills in rural settlements, their achievements and disappointments in city and country. Presenters describe in brief papers the migration, training and experiences of the artisans. Lunch and refreshments included. Bookings required by phone or email.

Presented by German Heritage Research Group, Friends of the Lutheran Archives, Barossa German Language Association, Lutheran Archives
