Today, as part of my ongoing family history research, I found a great website featuring Historic Australian Newspapers, 1803 to 1954.
I don’t know how long it’s been around for, but gosh it’s fantastic, as it contains a searchable database of newspaper articles you would otherwise need to visit the State Library to see.
For me, today, it’s meant that I’ve been able to pick up a few articles I had never seen before, and to get better quality images of newspapers articles, I’ve had only poor quality copies of.
So that’s how I’ve spent a fair bit of the day, working on my family history research. I’ve added a few bits and pieces here and there, and I’ve tightened up some of the articles I’ve previously written.
And then of course, I turned off the power for Earth Hour. I was surprised that most of my street seemed to have done the same.
At 9.30, the power came back on, and I wandered down the street to grab a pizza.
After all of the busy social occasions of the last fortnight, I think I’ve just about caught up.
