    Joe later followed in the footsteps of his older brother, Ernie, and emigrated to Australia following WWII. See the picture of the SS Asturias to read about this immigration. Ernie, Joe, and Cindy's grandfather, Jack Goodman, all left England to seek a better way of life abroad.

    Undated photo taken about 1905. John Henry Goodman emigrated to Canada/USA in 1910 aboard the SS Tunisia, Ernie Goodman emigrated aboard the SS Commonwealth to Australia in 1914, and Joe Goodman emigrated to Australia aboard the SS Asturias in 1949. The rest of the family remained in England. Albert's daughter, Barbara Goodman, is a significant contributor to the family genealogy in England and Australia.

    SS Asturias - Australian immigrant ship, circa 1949
    Joe Goodman, brother of Cindy's grandfather, together with his wife May, and sons Ben and John emigrated from England to Melbourne, Australia on this ship in March of 1949. Much more about this vessel can be found at http://www.ssasturias.net/gallery.html, including the passenger list showing the full names of Goodman family members.

    More than one and a half million Britons left for Australia in the quarter century following the Second World War.††The Goodman family took advantage of the incentives to emigrate, and joined the largest migration from Europe in the modern era.

    The SS Asturias made 23 trips to Australia between 1946 and 1952, carrying more than 20,000 migrants.† Most of†them came under an assisted passage scheme through which adults travelled to Australia for just £10 whilst children travelled free*.† Many children were brought to Australia as 'orphans' to find new homes.†

    The trip from the UK to Australia when SS Asturias served as a 'migrant ship' took approximately 5-6 weeks. According to the "Instructions for the Voyage", passengers were allowed to take with them no more than £6 in UK currency, and up to £10 Sterling "in Australian or other currency notes .... making a combined total equal to £16 Sterling for use on board.... which may not be spent at ports abroad."

    The route from Southampton varied, with some voyages via the Suez Canal, Aden and Colombo and others via Karachi and Bombay to Fremantle, Western Australia.† †
