A New Year Message from Down Under

I had a delightful New Year’s greeting from a lady called Maxine Amos who hails from Australia.  Maxine had looked at the Inspirational Women weblog and she got in touch with me via e-mail.
“We are a small Family History Association in Townsville, North Queensland, Australia, and I am the editor of our magazine which is published 3 times a year, approx 350 A5 copies. Copies are also sent to the State and National archives and to other Family History Associations around Australia and overseas.”
To find out more about the Association please see their website
Being in touch with people all over the world who are interested in the history of the First World War is one of the most rewarding aspects of my commemorative exhibition project.  Thank you Maxine and Happy New Year to you and all members of your Association.
