Discovering the “Australian Women Writers Challenge” 2015

Do you love reading? And love a blog challenge? If you said yes to both, you’ll certainly love this!

Late last year I discovered the “Australian Women Writers” Challenge. This is where readers read books written by Australian women and write reviews about them, through their blog or other means.

What Happened When in Australian History?

Yesterday was Australia Day, and I would have loved to participate in Pauleen’s Australia Day Challenge 2014, but unfortunately with my current work commitments (ie. a cruise in a week’s time), time didn’t permit me at present. So instead I’ve decided to do my own Australia Day blog post, and for this I want to share with you two of my favourite “Australian history” books.

The Guide to FamilySearch Online

I wanted to let you know about this fabulous new book I bought recently “The Guide to FamilySearch Online” by James L. Tanner.

After reading about this title on James’ Genealogy’s Star blog, I went right ahead and bought my copy through the BYU Bookstore for US$39.95. I admit that I did cringe at the $30.00 freight, however that was forgiven when I received it within 3 days. I see that it is also now available through, though I haven’t checked out the freight.
