There is nothing like looking at the original records - not everything is online.

I believe my great great Eva met her husband Herbert Gedge on board the SS Ballaarat in the journey from Australia to England in 1892. They married four months after the voyage.

I found a relative listed as attending the 1901 Melbourne Cup with a brief description of her dress.
Among those on the lawn at Flemington watching the Melbourne Cup in 1901 was Mrs Crespigny née Sophia Beggs (1870-1936), second wife of my great great grandfather, Philip Champion de Crespigny (1850-1927). The Age newspaper r...

Finding aids can be invaluable in helping to make sense of the records and explaining how they are organised which means you are more likely to find the record you are hunting for.

Family historian
Introduction
My family history blog expands the information in my family tree, telling some of the stories that go with the names and dates I have collected there. The people I write about are mostly from the families of Boltz, Cavenagh-Mainwaring, Champion de Crespigny, Cross, Cudmore, Dana, Gilbart, Manock, Plowright, Sullivan, Way and Young. If you and I might be related I would be delighted to hear from you (ay.familyhistory at gmail dot com).
I have also started a blog covering the history of Avoca during World War 1. Avoca is a small town in the goldfields of Victoria, Australia.
