GAGs - GeniAus' Gems - 21 November 2015

Yesterday just disappeared on me and I didn't get round to posting my weekly list.... but a girl's gotta have fun!

An exciting event in the world of Ausralian Geneablogging took place this week when Jen Coates set up a Facebook Group for Austalian Local and Family History Bloggers. Membersip has lead me to a few "New to me" blogs and unlocked the identity of some previously anonymous (to me) bloggers. Thanks Jen for your invitation to join the group. Membership of the group is open to personal bloggers while those who blog for insitutions and societies are not able to join! If you fit the criteria do look for the group on Facebook and ask to join up.


Here is a selection from my reading this week.

Thanks for including my post Computer vs Paper Forms. It's good to know that someone else agrees with me.

I've asked to be included in this group on Facebook, and was contacted via message to see if I had a blog but they seemed to want Australian blogs to talk about Australian genealogy only. I might be wrong and they might let me in later, but for now they haven't because I talk about the US, Belgium/France, Poland, Denmark and Germany in mine (where my ancestors come from).

This group would be anyone with deep roots in Australia though.

I found Lois Willis ' post great and the tips on Victorian research
With my husband and I both being Hawkesbury descendants - anything on Hawkesbury is going to appeal.
