The Bride, Mrs Ruby May Bradford, was the widow of George Edward Bradford. She was born to Christian Edward Curry and Christina McKay in Cootamundra, NSW in 1893.
Not only does this article from Trove tell me how my 2xGreat-Grandfather Patrick Curry was occupied on New Year’s Day in 1880 it also tells me that he was still resident in Camden at this time and helps me hone in on the date he must have moved to Cowra, NSW.

This week I limited my Curry search on Trove to Australian Content and Availability:Online and looked at the results for Pictures, Photos and Objects. I got a few hits some of which were for food. Of the relevant images some are still in copyright so I can only share links to these. Each of these images provided information for my CurryAus database.

It’s rare to find a photo in an article so I was pleased to find this grainy one of young Pam Curry from Cardiff playing with her friend in the park in Hamilton, NSW. I wonder where Pam is now!

I fear that I need to be like a cat and have nine lives. I have so much Curry material. One of the places I store things that I find on my Australian Currys is in a list on Trove.
Our national treasure, Trove, provides access to newspaper articles, photos, websites etc. Genealogists mostly make use of the newspaper archive but searches of the database can bring up other relevant items like music scores and voice recordings.
When I am playing in Trove I sometimes don’t have time to deal with things I find. As a registered user I have the ability to tag items I find and create lists for later review. These can be easily accessed from one’s user profile or by a Trove search. Even a Google search will find Trove lists.
I have saved over 300 articles in my CurryAus list. I am not sure that I will ever get through them in my lifetime but at least they are preserved as a collection for anyone in the future who may be interested in the Curry surname.

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.

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.
