Headlines of Old

Trove Tuesday 22nd Mar 2022 TEACHERS TRANSFERRED ISSUE 2, teachers transferred 1901, are your ancestors mentioned?… both country and city. Maybe these names could also be listed in unclaimed mail. It helps to look up the local papers of the times, maybe in TROVE or State Archives.

If by chance, you have any old photos of any school mentioned in these lists, I’d be happy to add them to this post for all to enjoy.

Stay safe and well.
This will pass.
