CurryAus on Stage

The nerves are kicking in as I prepare go on stage later this week to talk about my Surname Study, CurryAus.

I will be joining experts Kirsty Gray, Sillifant Study, and Janet Few, Braund One-Name Study, in a panel presentation “Surname Studies – the why, the how and much
more! ” at THE Genealogy Show 2019 on Saturday this week in Birmingham. As the newbie on the panel I hope to learn some tips from Kirsty and Janet. I will also share my experiences as a beginner Surname Student using 21st century tools to manage her study.

My message will be “If you are contemplating a Surname Study – JUST DO IT!”

CurryAus on Facebook

I have recently had great success in connecting and collaborating with those with shared interests in some genealogy groups on Facebook so I have created a CurryAus Facebook Group : a meeting place for descendants of Australian Currys.


CurryAus Facebook Group

The description I have put on the Facebook Group is “G’day, I am Jill aka GeniAus who is conducting a study of the surname Curry in Australia. I have established this group as a place where Australians with Curry ancestors can meet Curry cousins and tell stories of their Curry ancestors. Your discussions will assist me in sorting the 8,000+ Curry records I have in my surname study database into family groups. To protect your privacy this is a closed group – only those who answer questions asked when applying to join the group will be able to see your discussions.”

If you have Curry connections downunder please join this new Group.

A-Z Theme Reveal

The  very first piece of advice on the challenge sign-up page  is “We recommend short posts”. As I’m eleven days late with my theme reveal I’ll make it short.

In a video I made yesterday about my CurryAus Surname Study I showed how I use Trove lists to keep track of articles I find about people with the Curry surname  in Trove. When showing this list yesterday I realised that I had 245 items on that list.

So where possible I will go through Curry forenames from A-Z as per the event schedule and share some of the articles I have found there relating to Currys. For problem letters like X and Q of course I may have to resort to Google.
