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!

Trove Tuesday, Heatwave!

As the old song says, 'we're having a heatwave,'.
 
This January, Sydney has broken records, not ones that I suppose we think much about. Since records have been kept, this January has re-written them.
 Days with temperatures in the low 40'sC and nights in the high 20'sC, have made us uncomfortable.
 
I thought that I'd see how they reported heatwaves, when our ancestors were alive.
 
 
This is from the Lithgow Mercury (NSW 1888-1954) and Monday January 4 1909, p4.
 
 
 
 
At least we have the benefit of air conditioners and fans to help alleviate the heat.
 
Stay cool.
Lilian.
