Day 2 - Wednesday, 11th February FGS Day 1 I woke up on Wednesday morning eager to start the day;
however, as I was still recovering from jetlag I was a bit slow in getting

Arundel King - 52 Ancestors #2
Week 2's theme for 52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks is King . Seeing the theme, I thought it might be a good opportunity to do some more research on someone in my family tree with the surname King - and there aren't too many of them at the moment. I chose Arundel S...

Collection of Wedding Invitations
I found some old wedding invitations earlier this week that my Great Grandparents Elizabeth Croal & William Gow had received in the early 1900s. They are still in quite good condition which is wonderful as they are over 100 years old. I think I would like t...

I have the cards that my grandparents received when they celebrated their Golden Wedding Anniversary. I also have the menu from the meal. The combination of documents are very revealing. They celebrated a year earlier than they should have for reasons most genealogists will have encountered. It seems strange to think how long ago this was it should have been 40 years this year.

Amanuensis Monday: The Will of Alexander Mackay
Earlier this month, Find My Past released New South Wales Will Books 1800-1952 (currently offline for improvements). Seeing as my Australian side of the family is from New South Wales (NSW), I had to take a look. Of the 10 I have found so far, I definitely ...

Last year the expo hall had "backblaze" sponsor a mini-session area where speakers would talk for 10 minutes on a variety of topics. They even had a time where anybody could sign up to speak on a topic. Great place to hang out while you eat!

I'll only be tuning into the web sessions but I'm excited for you! Have a great time!
