great advice from Yvette Hoitink
As worldwide genealogists, most of us have ancestors from other countries. For those of us who live in 'countries of origin,' we often get asked for help by people from the 'countries of destination.' For example, most of my ...

I have been using the digitised War Diaries from various units in researching soldiers recently. They are an excellent supplement to the individual dossiers. They are often written in pencil but if you save the image you can enhance the contrast and improve legibility.
This personal genealogy blog challenge is to stimulate my own genealogy blogging efforts in 2014 – 2015 by focusing on a different kind of genealogical record each week. I wanted a challenge that reflected my own archival background as well as my own genealogy interests and there are probably ...

Dear genealogy societies, No doubt some genealogy society people will be offended by what I've got to say, but this has been on my mind for a long time. I've discussed my concerns with society members from around the count...

In my recent family tree research I have come across several family members who died at sea.
This week's Sepia Saturday prompt is the sea. In fact, the prompt picture of Bondi Beach inspires thoughts of holidays by the beach, but I have recently been researching several members of my family who died at sea and I was ...

This week's Sepia Saturday post remembers my grandfather who was a keen fisherman. His birthday was 4 July.
The theme for this week's Sepia Saturday blogging prompt is fish. Saturday is the birthday of my maternal grandfather Hans Boltz, who was born 4 July 1910. At the moment I can't find a photograph of Hans fishing. This is a pi...

My grandmother's 107th birthday in a few days - she died 2 years ago just a few days short of her 105th birthday.
In a memoir about my grandmother Kathleen (1908 - 2013), my father wrote that in an interview she remarked that when she was young she would often play golf in the morning and go riding in the afternoon – or riding in the mor...

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.
