A is for Albert

This month I am participating in the A-Z Blogging Challenge where I will endeavour to post on this blog each day. It’s my first attempt at the challenge, I hope that I have the stamina to complete it.

I will be going through the Curry forenames in my surname study database from A-Z and,  as per the event schedule, will share some of the articles I have found on Trove relating to Currys. For problem letters like X and Q I may  resort to Google.

    Agree with the comment about the details in the article. Very rare to see that much anymore. I know it sounds gruesome, but I would like a little info on the particulars in obits regarding the circumstances of demise. I’m talking very little, like ‘after a long illness’ or ‘accident’ or whatever. I’m not sure why this is not done, rather than leave us all hang, wondering the worst.

    Maybe he didn’t realise it was so deep? I wonder if it was overly hot on that day? Otherwise it does seem odd that he went in the water without being able to swim. Very interesting. Thank you!

    Albert was my “A” post last year as I blogged about my family tree. My Dad and his Dad and both of his Grandfathers were all named Albert. I look forward to reading more!
