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'.

An update from my last post.

Using TROVE, I have been able to find out more information on my two soldiers.

In the Sydney Morning Herald, Thursday 4 November 1915, is a notice relating to the death of Private Jack Harvey. It mentions that he enlisted at the start of the war and was employed on Round Hill Station.

I faired a bit better for Private George Parnaby. The Argus, Melbourne, Monday 1 November 1915, gives details of when he enlisted, his 18th birthday, that his mother died when he was 2 years old  and that he was shot in the head.
The Sea Lake Times & Berriwillock Advertiser, Saturday October 9, 1915, has a lovey detailed piece about George's memorial service.

Not much to sum up the lives of two servicemen.

Bye for now,
