As well as enjoying doing charts, I also like doing research into where my ancestors (both paternal & maternal) came from?. However, when I came to look up when a mate of my was born (here in Melbourne), I noticed that the Australian birth records end in 1922 - well on Ancestry.com.au (of which I a member) they do. Does anyone know why that is so? given that the British birth index finishes in 2005
Is anyone here a member of a geneology (internet) site? I found out last week, that my paternal great-grandfather (who was a fisherman) was lost overboard in the North sea - 1908. Given that I have watched fishing programs e.g. Deadliest Catch, I have a real appreciation of how tough and dangerous life he (and all fishermen) must of had.
Oh well I must go as I have the house chores to do before the wife (better half) gets back.
