So Someone Does Read My Posts!

I started writing this blog for my own personal satisfaction and as a way of sharing items I found interesting and to share information about my own family history journey.  Along the way it has been a tremendous amount of fun and I have met up with some relatives, which is always a bonus as well as making many friends.

It is hard to know at times who is reading the posts (as not many people comment) but apparently some people do indeed read them and consider them useful.

I am honoured to announce that this blog  has been selected for permanent preservation by the National Library of Australia in their Pandora web archive.


 So as their website explains:
"The name, PANDORA, is an acronym that encapsulates their mission: Preserving and Accessing Networked Documentary Resources of Australia.

The PANDORA Archive is a selective collection of web publications and websites relating to Australia and Australians. It includes materials that document the cultural, social, political life and activities of the Australian community and intellectual and expressive activities of Australians. "

I will be  good company as other blogs I know that have been archived are Judy Webster's blog, Shauna Hick's blog and also the First Families site.

The websites being archived cover a wide range of topics as can be seen below:


And a number of these topics can be broken down into further sub-topics.
