Geoff Doherty (Queensland)
Geoff has been interested in Boer War research since he began his university studies in 1996 as a part-time student.  He blames his wife, Marg, for this as she got him interested in family history in the first place, which ultimately led to him beginning the university course.  That has now culminated with his commencement this year of a PhD course (for the second time, he freely admits) which will concern the four Queensland Bushman contingents sent to the war in South Africa.  Geoff and Marg have been on most Unlock The Past cruises to date and consider them to be a wonderful way to explore family history and meet new people with a like interest.

Unlock the Past Cruises – 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 8th, 10th 13th, 14th, 15th, 16th & 17th cruises
