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!

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.
