Congress

It only happens once every three years. Aussie genies call it Congress but it has nothing to do with politics. It’s full title is The Australasian Congress on Genealogy and Heraldry (quite a mouthful).

Congress is held every three years under the auspices of AFFHO, the Australasian Federation of Family History Organisations and brings together passionate family historians from around Australia, New Zealand and many parts of the world.

#genealogyselfie I first noted this hashtag in 2014 when Gould Genealogy ran a #genealogyselfie competition for a whole month.

This week The Conference Keeper and Geneabloggers people have taken this idea on board and  proclaimed February 1st as #genealogyselfie day.

Trovaholic – Chris used this word on Google+ yesterday and marked it for my  attention. If you’re an Australian and you are addicted to Trove you won’t need a definition.

If you come from some other land you are missing out on one the best free resources around.  It even has lots of news from across the seas.

Many Australian Genies suffer from an addiction to Trove.
