The history of Australia Day - I didn't know this!
View original post
We all know that Australia Day is celebrated on 26 January ... right? Sure! But did you know that Australia Day wasn't always celebrated on this day?
I intend to temporarily reduce the price of one of my copying services for original records at Queensland State Archives. Check the list of indexed records (www.judywebster.com.au/other.html) & tell me which ones would interest you most if copies cost less. Add a comment here, & if you're lucky I may select the index/records that you nominate! #genealogy
This leads to 53,000 names from Archives records (asylums, hospitals, pensions, missing persons, criminals etc) plus graves and certificates indexed for genealogy.
