John William ROSE is proving a bit of an exception to my usual problems. I can normally find alot of information about a persons early life and war service, and then strike problems with their post war life. However, John is the opposite!! I can't find anything about his life before he came to ...

Urban Bushland - this one is a bit different, as it is made from linen. Cotton wadding. And it's huge!!

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.

I would prefer the parents and children to retain the darker background colour as it makes it easier to see them on the screen. With all this sort of colour coding/highlighting being removed, it makes it hard to pick out different sections of the page. They all blend together. You have taken away the visual clues to the structure of the page and information.

Dive in and see the story of Victoria's history brought to life in almost 200,000 (and growing) amazing historical images.
All images in this search pool are out of copyright or available to be used.
A few images of people but lots of buildings and places that might be of interest to the family historian!!

I love BSB, it is my favourite ink by far. However, I use a Lamy Safari as my daily writer and I can't use BSB in any of them (I have several). I had two feeds basically disintegrate when I had BSB in it. The wings that hold the nib onto the feed just fell off. No problem with any other Noodler's ink, just this one. It made me cry, not because it wrecked the pen but because it means I can't use it as much!! I've also had staining issues but that really isn't big issue for me. So I'm now using the BSB in my Cross Affinity. No problems so far.

A quick post about the need to go beyond the individual when researching people for WW1 biographies.
Part of my methodology when researching the service people for the book is to look at their lives before and after the war. This begins with looking at basic genealogical information, like parents and siblings. I do this partly to give a broader view of the persons life, to make their bio more ...

So the Carrington Albums came to work and I managed to get a few shots. Lots of names and groups shown. Might be of interest if you have family in the following areas: #Albury #Grafton #Yass #Liverpool #Newcastle #Maitland #RoundHill #Tenterfield #MountVictoria

I've decided to re-make my Black Arched Brim Elizabethan hat. The first one turned out too small, so I am going to make another one. For... Citrus Pinwheel Complete. Well, I'm back. Carrying on the long tradition of shitty stuff happening near Christmas, I found out a few days before said ...
