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

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...

Re: Pioche, Nevada

Thanks Sarah - the terminology is different to what we have. Our wide open spaces with little population are called shires (although many are being amalgamated into even larger areas, upsetting the residents). A shire could cover a very large area & the municipal govt headquarters can be hundreds of...

I have a photograph of a gg grandfather taken in Pioche, Nevada. Google tells me this is an "unincorporated community". What does this mean? What is an "Incorporated community"?
