GAGs - GeniAus' Gems - 29 July 2016

I set off on my recent holiday with every intention of maintaining my GeniAus' Gems posts while I was away but my resolve soon failed as I savoured the delights on offer in faraway places.

I've been home for a week and have tried to read every Australian geneablog post that came into my RSS during my absence. I had to delete many of the other posts as I just don't have the time to catch up. I've been reading everything this week and have now caught up so I'm sharing a few gems once more.


1. The name Billy Buster ennticed me to read this post.
