November saw the launch of the newest history and genealogy magazine for the Australian and New Zealand marketĀ  “Inside History“, you can read more about it in my earlier post.

In this one, I’d like to tell you about what you’ll find in Issue 1. Apart from it being very well presented this magazine, is packed with terrific advice, research tips, interviews and more.

The story of Reg Sprigg, rock star – one of Australia’s greatest geologists is covered, and personal historian, Annie Payne shares her advice for remembering and documenting the history of your childhood abode. Also Christine Yeates from State Records NSW talks about databases in the ‘A cup of tea with …’ article and Else Churchill from the Society of Genealogists in London keeps us up-to-date with what is happening in the UK in ‘Thoughts from abroad’.
