Stories of Pioneering Families From the Western District of Victoria
This week’s Trove Tuesday article first came to my attention in The Ararat Advertiser. It was barely legible but luckily the Gippsland Mercury ran the same story on February 24, 1914.
OBITUARY FRILLS. (1914, February 24). Gippsland Mercury (Sale, Vic. : 1914 – 1918), p. 4. Retrieved February 2, 2013, from http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article88665863
How great would be it be if all the obituaries listed the parents and grandparents names :) It’s a pity they thought this was only appropriate for the ‘important’ ones :)
I’m with Aillin on this Merron. Inn’t it great that different newspapers reported the same stories, sometimes with a slightly different “spin” giving us a chance to follow through.
