Research Bits and Pieces

E-mail Print

From time to time people send me snippets that should be shared with anyone researching in Geelong and District.  Although these can be forwarded to the Geelong & District Mailing List, they can be more useful if they are available through the web site and found using the web site's Search box.

If you have something useful to share with other researchers please feel free to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .  Ideally these snippets would relate to SOURCES of information and not about family history (Surnames) research.  Family research entries are probably more appropriate on the Geelong & District Surnames of Interest site.
