Trove Tuesday - Cradle, Altar, Grave

When I posted my recent entry on the Geneadictionary I found more hits than I expected for my search Cradle Altar Grave. Once I added a couple of extra search terms I found what I was seeking for that post. However, I thought some of the other articles I found deserved an airing.

The first article on the list  provides analysis and commentary on statistics from The South Australian Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriage in 1911. The first section of that long article follows, the remainder can be read here.

This handsome chap, John Ambrose Plunkett was a Deputy Registrar of Births, Deaths and Marriages. The interviewette that accompanies his portrait can be read here

It was interesting to read that in 1909 the "child harvest" was the highest ever attained in the Commonwealth and the death rate was the lowest on record.
