August is National Family History Month.

August is National Family History Month. State Library of WA has some great events and resources to help find information about family historyhere

Shire of Mundaring Libraries has Ancestry Library Online Edition available for use on the library computers. It can be very surprising what you can find. A warning – it can be very addictive! For instance, I was surprised to find a record that I knew had to be of my maternal grandfather on a passenger list to New York. I didn’t know he had intended to travel to America in 1923; his name is on the list as is that of my grandmother, but it is noted that they did not embark – this was because he failed the medical at the last minute, but I wouldn’t have known had I not done some searching on Ancestry Online.
Maybe you have a similar story of discovery? http://ow.ly/i/ci5Rr
