MIA - The Australian Genealogists Daily

For a few weeks I have been wondering what happened to my daily editions of The Australian Genealogists Daily Paper. Recently I hadn't seen announcements for it on Twitter so this morning decided to investigate.

When I logged in to my page and looked for recent archived editions I couldn't find any recent ones. I haven't yet ascertained how many editions have been missing. What I did find when I went to my content settings was that the content I had been sharing had disappeared and this section was blank, As there was no content to share didn't post any notifications to share.

I have now reinstated the content I share which is from the content that is sourced from the 143 members of my Australian Genealogists List on Twitter. While I was at it I also added my Youtube Channel as a content source. I will add some blog URLs from prominent Australian bloggers when I get a chance.

If you have been following The Australian Genealogists Daily notifications should appear in your Twitter feed soon. If you don't like Twitter you can create a account and Subscribe to your favourite papers.

Trove Tuesday - Birth Certificates

 I came across an article on birth certificates when researching a completely different topic on Trove. That took me off on a tangent where I did a simple search for "Birth Certificates". I was rewarded with many hits some of which discussed issues like illegitimacy and  inaccurate enlistment ages  that affected my family.
