CERTIFICATES OF NATURALISATION  SERIES 10 Trove Tuesday 26th Jan 2021.. What better subject could I select for this  Australia Day, even if it follows on from last week's... I have added a few extra entries from Birth Death Marriages files from various states. All I have had to go on was the few details in these notices, i.e. surname, forename, address and the year of receiving their certificate of naturalisation. The notices are below the gazettes that mention the names.

Keep safe and well.
This will pass.

Thursday, January 28, 2021



These titles are being digitised and will soon appear on Trove in the Newspapers & Gazettes category.

They are listed by state/territory of publication, then alphabetically by title. The year range being digitised is indicated in regular brackets after the title. Titles have been funded for digitisation by various contributors, which are indicated in square brackets at the end of each listing. Large national projects may have a separate listing.

Titles will be removed from this list when the year range indicated is fully available in Trove. You can see which newspapers and gazettes are already available in our full digitised newspapers and gazettes list.

If a newspaper you are interested in has not yet been digitised, why not consider partnering with us and adding titles to Trove? See the Digitisation section of Trove's Partner pages.

Ancestry Files Motion to Dismiss Yearbook Photo Misappropriation Law Suit

20 January 2021 at 10:20:03 am AEST

The IAJGS Records Access Alert previously reported on December 2, 2020 about a proposed class action lawsuit,  alleging Ancestry amassed photographs, names, likenesses and identities without permission to sell subscription access to the information and advertise Ancestry services and products—their Yearbook Collection.  The plaintiffs include California residents who are not Ancestry subscribers, have not donated a yearbook to the company and whose data were uploaded by Ancestry into the yearbook database—“U.S. School Yearbooks, 19090-1999”.  The database has about 730 million individual records including 60 million records from schools and universities in California......
