In a recent tweet Ancestry.co.uk asked “What does your last name say about you?”
Naturally I followed the link to “Discover the meaning and history behind your last name” which is Curry.
This link will show you what Ancestry had to say.
I needed to do a search on in The Victoria Government Gazette for a presentation I am giving soon so I decided to do a name search for Curry. I was rewarded with several pages of hits including this person, William John Curry, who has become the latest entry in my CurryAus database in Family Historian.
When doing this exercise it hit me that Government Gazettes are an excellent source of information for my CurryAus study. When I have time I will scour that list of hits for more Curry entries.
I couldn’t resist posting about Curry Family History over at my GeniAus blog (I was hoping to drive some readers over here).
You can read that post here:
You will hear me shouting from the rooftops when I import my old data into Family Historian.
