About Me.

A Family Tree researcher for over 30 years and a blogger since 2010, I love to share what I find. This blog has opened up a new way to contact and keep in-touch with both family and friends. It mightn't always be genealogy related and you might not agree with my point of view but I want you to comment, ask questions and look upon this blog as 'friends having a chat'.
Enjoy!

All sorts of things

Well where did the last week and a bit go? I am starting to wonder if someone has cranked up the turntable to 78rpm from 33rpm! Not sure what I'm talking about think back to pre CD times.

The Bankstown Family History Group is going ahead in leaps and bounds! We had our meeting on the 3rd and the constitution was accepted, with a 27/1 vote. The 1 didn't think that they would be the only one opposed and they did try to halt the vote. The other members were happy with what had been presented. 

Fair Trading has sent us the Certificate of Incorporation, which means we can now get a bank account and pay the room fees. We have the ABN and Tax File Number too.

The Group has joined 3 societies, The Royal Australian Historical Society, the Australasian Federation of Family History Organisations Inc. and the  NSW & ACT Association of family History Societies Inc. This gets our Group 'out there', so people can find us. I hope that this leads to an increase in membership.

We don't get into our room until May and next month are going back to the local RSL Club. They are letting us access the WiFi, so I can do a workshop and several interesting sites.

The Group is having a table at the Botany Bay Family History Society Heritage Fair on 29th March. This is at Tradies Club, Cnr Manchester Road and The Kingsway, Gymea. Pop in and meet us and enjoy the fair.

On a personal note, I'm still enjoying my studies but am finding American copyright boring. Shouldn't say that as it will be useful and I have been comparing the Australian and American ones.

I went and view the Miss Fischer Murder Mysteries Costume Display, at Old Government House, Parramatta. Stunning describes the costumes. Hat, shoes, underwear, capes, gloves and the dresses. Well worth the $16 entry fee and you get to see Old Government House, too. It is on until June and you should pre-book your tickets on- line as they do limit the numbers.
