GAGs - GeniAus' Gems - 7 October 2016

Here I am back again after a longer sabbatical than I had envisaged. I had a super European holiday during the Australian winter and returned home to be hit by a few health problems. Now that I can sit at my computer in a reasonable degree of comfort once more I thought it was time to bring GeniAus' Gems back to life.


During my absence I have read several hundred blog posts on my 'phone. I tried to keep up with the Australian Genealogy ones but I had to pass on many others I usually read. My blog writing also suffered during this period but thankfully I had scheduled a few posts here and on the Geneadictionary so I still maintained a presence.

Today I'm sharing a few posts I read during the past week. I trust you find something new here to whet your appetite.

1. Shelley has given her blog and website a new consistent look.
