GAGs - GeniAus' Gems - 26 September 2014

GAGs
Posted for your perusal is my first collection of GAGs or GeniAus' Gems.

1. http://fightingthekaiser.blogspot.com.au/2014/09/another-nurse-at-glenroy-military.html
A short story about a World War 1 nurse in which the blogger Cheryl reminds us that "history is a dynamic thing".


2. http://heritagegenealogy.com.au/blog-3/
Still on the World War 1 theme I selected this post from Carole Riley because, as well as telling a story, it demonstrates the wealth of material that can be found in Australian World War 1 service files.

3. http://www.memorabiliahouse.com/2014/09/the-holiday-to-do-list/ 
From Alona Tester is an image of a note she wrote as a child. We Mums must remember not to toss out treasures.

4. http://lostmedalsaustralia.blogspot.com.au/2014/09/launcelot-owen-mc.html
From Glyn, a beaut story, some determined research and great example of how persistance pays off.

5. http://manlylocalstudies.blogspot.com.au/2014/09/manly-ferry-tokens.html
I took a ride on the Manly Ferry this week so was interested to read about this early version of an Opal Card.

6. http://librarycurrants.blogspot.com.au/2014/09/leveraging-libraries.html
Carmel sheds light on a resource that I had not thought to use for Genealogy research.

7. http://slwa.wordpress.com/2014/09/18/early-perth-photograph-album-digitised/
Congratulations to The State Library of Western Australia on this new Digitisation project.

8. http://blogs.hht.net.au/cook/fowl-play/
The Cook and the Curator is one of my favourite history blogs. This post resonated as I have on occasion had backyard chooks.

9. http://www.labnol.org/software/quick-access-android-apps/28670/
A post from India for Android users.

10. http://www.thearmchairgenealogist.com/2014/09/expanding-your-genealogy-comfort-zone.html
A challenge from Canadian Lynn Palermo

That looks like a reasonable batch for my first post. I'll be saving any new GAGs I find into Evernote and will endeavour to share them next week.

Thank you for this most interesting list Jill. Number 6 is my favourite.

Carmel was one amazing librarian prior to her retirement and has so much to share with the genie community.
