1997 Rica Erickson applied her genealogical and writing skills
to her own family history. It is the biography of her maternal
great-grandmother Phoebe Louisa Morgan (1835-1889) who had
emigrated as an orphan from London to Victoria during the
gold rush of the 1850s. In this book she makes the story of
Phoebe come alive and shows her genealogical sources to inspire
others to try the same with their own ancestors.
