Day 27 Musical Instrument. Introducing Mabel Kate DAWSON, my maternal grandfathers sister. Born in London, England 15 March 1881 she played the saxophone and piccolo for a living. When I was a child we were told she went to the USA and worked in shows. Apparently with cowboys as part of the Wild West show. An unusual job for a woman in the early 1900’s. .

Day 26 - Rooftop.
Whenever I am traveling I like to take photos from high points. Rooftops on historic places are always interesting. Rooftop scenes give a great indication on how people live. This one is taken from the Cathedral in Seville in 2011. .

My discovery today is finding out you can put more than one image in an Instagram post. Day 25 - Discovery. #GenealogyPhoto #GenealogyPhotoaday #genealogy #familyhistory #reuse #recycle

Day 22 - Stairs from La Plaza de España, the Spanish square, Seville. The stairs are covered in beautiful tiles. The main structure is a semicircular plaza that Star Wars fans might recognise. Also on the historic building someone had graffitied my initials but that is another picture. We visited back in 2011. .

#Latergram for Day 17 Kitchen. What would a kitchen be without labels on containers? This is part of a set in the Australian Woman's Weekly from 1966. The instructions said to glue the back of the label and once dry cover in a clear lacquer. Today we probably would not have these available at home. Self adhesive is the way now. Found at Trove. #GenealogyPhoto #GenealogyPhotoaday #genealogy #familyhistory #trove #trovetuesday

Day 19 Flag.
It's my last day in the USA and I'm heading home where I will be welcomed by the Australian flag. Driving through the streets of Tallahassee I frequently saw flags flying on front porches. This is not common in Australia. When I farewelled Salt Lake City, after RootsTech, there was a large flag on one of the airport buildings so I had to take a pic of a plane taking off with the flag, Delta containers and mountains in the background. I was practicing the Photo Essay course I recently took from the University of Tasmanian part of a Family History Diploma. .

Day 15 Warrior.
Coming from New Zealand this days prompt reminds me of the Maori warriors. The haka, a war dance, is now seen globally at the beginning of major international sporting events and to honor important people. From flash-mobs supporting rugby teams pre-game to all the students from a school showing respect at a teachers funeral, the haka is now much more than a war cry. It is an integral part of New Zealand culture.

Day 14 Red.
The local society I belong to, Caloundra Family History, has a great library. Books range from local to global publications. It's interesting that the ones on WWI themes often feature red on the cover.
If you would like to follow the Caloundra Family History Facebook page search for us on Facebook. As the coordinator I publish a wide range of family history links and some local news & events. .

Day 11 & 12 Birth and Death
Sometimes researching family history is heart breaking. When Nana told us stories as a child I remember she said that her mother had lost some young babies. This seemed distant and normal - well is was so long ago in the 1800's. That was a child's view of being told this, factual, clinical and unemotional. When researching I found the birth and death of one of her own children. A child only three days old. Now I can imaging how traumatic it must have been. Someone probably registered the birth and death at the same time. The more I research my ancestors and relatives the more I appreciate them.
