  1. Yoo Hoo! Trove is my favourite web site.

  2. Trove is my favourite favourite site too. Marg. H. Sth Aust.

  3. as stated Trove is a marvellous incredible project, extremely successful and in these days of forcing everyone to go online for everything it has become a necessity as well as a joy to use. I am sure that schools and other educational institutions will use it more and more, finding out what we genealogy fans have known for some time. Months and years of going through records manually faded away once Trove appeared, the same information in minutes. The processes and programs used have also stood the test of time they are SIMPLE simplicity is beauty and are traversable by anyone no matter what age. I would bet that other cultures than anglo etc. also find them easy to use too. Any help to avert down gradation of Trove – I would like to help.

    This article from the ABC is worrying. Perhaps local and potential federal parliamentary members could by advised by all of their feelings.

    Searching for information about Robert Francis leis Born in Wondai , Queensland about 1944.

  12. Do NOT get sucked in by the FREE family history claims, when you try to access this site it sends you to a form where it requires your credit details, (FREE MY “BUTT”)

  13. Hi Tomasso, I’m not sure what you’ve clicked on to require a credit card, unless it’s adverts around the side … but I assure you that Trove is 100% free, no credit card is required.
