GAGs - GeniAus' Gems - 18 September 2015

I had a beaut trip to Port Macquarie this past week where I attended the Annual Conference of  The NSW & ACT Association of Family History Societies Inc. On our way back to Sydney we visited Mr GeniAus' 1st cousin once removed to fill her in the recent reseaarch we have done on the Ball line. She had many laughs when we related some of the family stories we had found on Trove. Hearing those stories prompted some pithy comments from her aboutsome of the ancestors. I'll add them to my database but might mark them as private!

I just noticed that my GAGs badge tones in with my new blog look. I pimped my blogs this week too.



I've had more time for blog reading this week so my selections will stray from Australia and family history. This collection is subjective as inclusions are influenced by my emotions and environment.

1. A question we are often asked. Lynda answers.
