July had arrived and so has the latest issue of Inside History Magazine. When looking at the cover for this July-August issue there are three things that grab me: the first being the image itself, it is simply stunning! The second is the heading “50 blogs you need to read” and the third is “Eureka Moments!” Intrigued? You should be.
Just in case you haven’t yet discovered ‘Inside History Magazine’ yet, this is THE perfect reading material for everyone who is passionate about Australian and New Zealand genealogy, history and heritage.
With each issue of the magazine highlighting a theme (this one being ‘Eureka moments’) there’s always a fabulous collection of articles based around that topic, in this collection of ‘great genealogy discoveries’ you can read about:
