James Hurst, author of Game to the Last - The Eleventh Australian Infantry Battalion at Gallipoli is giving a free talk at ANZAC House Perth on Wednesday 15 April at 10:00am, and aiming to demystify the Gallipoli Landing by carving a clearer picture of the battle on that day.
James will focus on the experience of the 11th Battalion, and tell the stories of some of the men who appear in the now well know 'pyramid photo' of 10 January 1915.

Have Your Say
The last time we did a poll of who was using what Genealogy Software was in Jan 2012.
Since then things have moved on quite a bit, there is more online activity and new options, a couple of the popular proprietary software programs have, or are about to become defunct, and there is a change in our use of operating systems with more Mac and Linux users around.
Doesn't matter really what the news is, or where it is, if you want to keep up to date with newspapers worldwide, you just have to use this special Newspaper Map.
WAGS and Western Australian genealogy and family history included, if you are wanting to know what local newspaper is current for just about anywhere in the world, you can't go past this. All states of Australia included, and massive numbers of newspapers worldwide available at the click of an icon.
Magic stuff with newspapers and maps....

WAGS has well and truly made it into the Genealogy in Time's worldwide Top 100 Genealogy Websites - first time in and arriving at number 71.
This is a terrific achievement by WAGS considering that we are up against the monsters in the genealogy world of websites. This including the likes of Ancestry, FamilySearch, FindMyPast, GeneaNet, Geni.com and a whole swag of other paysites.
