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'.

TROVE Tuesday

                                               THE ARROW. Sports Politics and the Drama.

I didn't have any family titbits, this week, so thought I'd look at a different news paper.

This news paper was published from 1896 to 1912, in Sydney, NSW. I looked at the first issue, March 7th 1896. Cost 1d (1 penny). Published on Saturday.

Below is just part of the first page. It has such comments as; "154,000 pianos are built every year. We can understand why lunatic asylums are always overcrowded." Or another that states that starfish don't have a nose.
Other articles in the paper were about horse racing, cricket, dinners. To me the paper seems like a bit of fun.
Bye for now,
