Trove Tuesday – Mal Curry

One of my fave activities is Troveing. This morning I thought I’d do a  Trove search for Curry limited to Pictures, photos, objects  and Australian Content.

One of the first images I found was of Mal Curry who was an employee of the Melbourne Telegraph Office, 1949. I am so pleased that the image by Bob Kent in the SLV collection is out of copyrght so I can share it.Now I have a photo I need to find out more about Mal.

Missing Friends

My Genimate, Pauleen, when conducting research for a recent presentation in Ireland used the missing friends advertisements as a resource.

That gave me an idea – I just did a search on Trove using the term “Missing Persons” Curry and was rewarded with a list of hits. Some of the information I found has built on my database.

Trove Tuesday – Canary Lover

The Curry snippets I find on Trove add to the stories of the people in my CurryAus database as well as confirming dates and places. This post remembers James Curry who passed away 74 years ago this week.
