The December 2010 issue of the Australian Family Tree Connections magazine is out now. This issue contains an interesting mix of articles for when a quiet moment presents itself during the busy Festive Season.

Do you know anything about a Mary Randall who may have come from Mittagong? and do you have a Bernard McCann on your family tree? The Antiques, Haeirlooms and Keepsakes article makes for fascinating reading, and I guarantee that Grandma’s Wash Day will make you glad you are alive today!
