following on from Annie Payne, Mum (Joan Lois Adams) wrote the history of the City of Greater Wollongong War Widows Guild Club for their 50th anniversary in 2004 when she was their Secretary - here's a couple of pages of the 66 page history - it's more a formal history rather than a collection of stories. For the last 20 years of Mum's life, it  was dominated by her involvement in War Widows where she was Honorary Secretary for nearly 20 years - so I believe Annie Payne's suggestion to capture the stories is a great idea especially if it can capture their stories to expand on the formal histories

How fascinating, KerriAnne. I wonder how many other Legacy Widows Clubs have done this, tracing history from the foundation of Legacy in the early 1020's?

Following on from my chat on air about Legacy during the 1960's, I put together a proposal to to help the Legacy Widows' Clubs to gather and preserve the stories of this uniquely Australian ex-servicemen's oganisation which has been helping widows and children.

My Mum was also active in her War Widows Group in Sydney's Eastern Suburbs. She is now too frail to participate but when she was more able loved being involved.

In this Hangout on Air GeniAus will give a short introduction to Evernote. I am hoping that some Evernote users (beginners most welcome) will join me to discuss the ways in which they use Evernote to support their genealogy habit.
This Hangout On Air is hosted by Jill Ball. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

Sorry I missed it, we had visitors. I'm tossing between Evernote and OneNote. I love the tabs in OneNote as a quick look see to what family I want to note on. Not that I've done much with either recently.

I've sort of recovered from the Unlock the Past Cruise from which I recorded a couple of solo hangouts. 

I'm hoping that you will join me online for the next GeniAus Hangout on Air next week. Your invitation should be in your G+notifications otherwise you will find details in your Events.

My great grandfather lived and died in Rookwood Asylum.  I would love to get copies of the records of his stay there.  I am not sure of his admission date but he died19th Dec 1906.  Does anyone know the methodology of getting these records (if there is one)?

I am postponing tonight's Hangout for a couple of days as my Mother is in hospital and I need to attend to her needs. As she is  now improving I will be in a position to host the Hangout in two days time. 

Thanks everyone for your interest - I hope the new time is convenient for some of you.

Family comes first. Hopefully she is on the mend and bossing you about by now?

This new program is pretty useful if you have those old BDM CDs (Digger and KAWare) which won't run under Win7/8....

Tonight in our Hangout we will be talking about the learning we have experienced this year. 

If you plan to join the live discussion then please be ready to share details of what you have learnt, if you have applied it yet or how you will apply it. Has your learning enabled you to add more leaves to your family tree or to update your practices? Have you experienced any challenges in applying your learning?

I'll be online at least 15 mins prior to hitting the record button so we can have a chat and make sure everything is tickety-boo for the session.

Cheers, Jill

I've been flat out like a lizard drinking so have not scheduled a Hangout for this week.  I'm taking off on the Unlock the Past Genealogy Cruise tomorrow and will be attempting two Hangouts from the ship under their banner. 

As internet connections on board ship are dodgy we will be scheduling these when we are in port and can use our own wireless connections.

I may try a GeniAus Hangout from the ship if not I will plan some for my return.
