GAGs - GeniAus' Gems - 21 August 2015

On my recent holiday I had every intention of keeping up my GeniAus Gems posts duirng our time away. New and exciting parts of the world just got in my way.

I managed to read many Australian blog posts but I had to ignore those from overseas and as for commenting on posts Pfft!. It's comfortable back in my geneacave and I keep wondering if I really had that big adventure, thankfully we have several thousand happy snaps to remind us of the people and places we have encontered.

I thought that more people would be blogging about National Family History Month but reports on the event seem to thin on the ground. I am enjoying reconnecting with my genimates via their blogs.


Here are some treasures I have stored away in Evernote:

1. Tiggy has a unique way of storing ancestor stories

2. Some monkey business with high stakes from Vicki

Thanks for the GAG Jill! :) I wrote about the great monkey escape and though the name Vicki is lovely, I'm actually Jess. :)

Thanks for the mention Jill. The feeling of getting my son interested is like when catching a fish. I enjoy hooking unsuspecting adults too :-)
