Currently having to rethink my filing system as it is becoming a little unwieldy, would love a hangout to discuss what works for other people (so I can steal their ideas)

Does anyone know any good resources for convict road gangs in the 1830s and 40s? Particularly interested in Harper's Hill.

My google-fu is failing me so I ask the collective.

Yes, yes, I am aware that it is now 16 days into 2015 but the truth is between finishing my Masters, getting the results - I passed of course - Christmas, New Year and the beginning of this week; I kind of just collapsed. In a heap. And did a whole lot of n...

Is this thing on?
Um hello. Yes, it has been awhile, but my Masters project was submitted last week and suddenly my time is once again my own. Well except for job hunting and hausfrau-ing, the latter of which I am unbelievably terrible at.  It runs in the family ;) Of course...

When things work until they don't (or why I need to rethink how I organising my genealogy files)
My system works pretty well. Most of the time. But with the more information I collect on collateral lines and associated individuals it is getting a little unwieldy. I don't want to throw the baby out with the bath water. I like my system. But it needs rej...

Why do I keep spamming you all with this? Because it a fantastic webseries that highlights the best of transmedia and they need cashy money to continue. So skip your hipster coffee for the day and throw the money at them instead. Trust me, if you love books you will love this series.

If you love classic literature you should be watching this series, no it is not about Alice in Wonderland at all.
