Article: Genealogy Isn’t Free

I don’t think too many people need to be reminded that genealogy isn’t free, neither is it cheap. This article comments on the cost of genealogy – perhaps you have a different view? Feel free to share your view in the comments – I’d be glad to read them.

The link below is to an article that reports on a new database available online, that of New Zealand Sheep-Farmers from 1881 to 1918. I’m not sure that the database will assist in searching for Kiwi Black Sheep of the family though.

Annual Leave Break – 2 Weeks Off

Let me just take this opportunity to thank all of the visitors to my Blog(s) – except the spammers of course. Thankfully the majority of spam is removed without having to check it over. I would love for the real comments to be posted without having to check them first, however there is still a lot of spam that makes it through and that needs to be separated from the good stuff.

It is time for me to take a break from Blogging and I have chosen to take my break while on annual leave from work, which will allow me to do a number of things – get healthier, get some rest, hopefully travel a little at some point, read some books, etc. It will also give my regular visitors a chance to have a break from my ramblings and carry on. There is plenty of content to look at in the archives though, so feel free to browse those while I take my 2 week hiatus.

So thanks again and feel free to leave some thoughts and comments along the way. Have a great couple of weeks 🙂
