Re: Writing a Family History Blog

Google was the beginning of my family history addiction. I googled my father's name and discovered he had a half-sister. I also met a third cousin who lived in the house his grandfather had built in 1921, and found our family relatives in the USA via an online obituary. Revealing family secrets is a...

Re: Australian & New Zealand BMD records

Hi John As Alan said - there is no direct access to registry offices in Australia - and apart from purchasing certificates or transcripts or images - no indirect access. I find the places that are worth a visit are the State archives in your states of interest. One of the best sources for finding th...

Re: Board software update

I have a query Andrew.

I recently received a PM - but no email notification. I checked my settings and it has the email ticked for PMs. It worked for me before the upgrade. Is there something else I should be doing to get the email? (It could, of course, be my email software)

thanks

Trish

Re: Pioche, Nevada

I have been through there in temperatures over 110 degrees F (43 Celsius) and one memorable time in a blizzard in January... I recommend late spring for the best view of the country, while there is still a bit of green :) It can be a pretty harsh place - there were a lot of mining towns at one time...
