I've been spring cleaning my blog, including a new header/banner: http://rebelhand.wordpress.com/2014/02/09/an-early-spring-clean/

Are there any other improvements you'd like to see?

Great offer until Monday! Free access to the UK Census collection - 1841 to 1911 at Ancestry Australia/NZ: http://ancstry.me/19N903j (via Ros Dunstall)
And you can combine it with free use of Lost Cousins and maybe hunt down some rellies. http://www.lostcousins.com/newsletters/lateaug13news.htm

It's National Family History Month in Australia and New Zealand! http://www.familyhistoryweek.org.au/
Since I won't be able to get to any of the events, this is how I'm marking it, with a lot of Delaneys and their spouses: http://rebelhand.wordpress.com/2013/08/01/national-family-history-month-and-some-of-my-ancestors/
