Re: Help identifying miltary dress in photograph

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

Thanks Andrew.
