New Projects! New South Wales, Australia, Applications and Admissions to Orphan Schools, 1817-1833 and Gateshead, Durham, England, Roll of Honour, 1914-1920
The New South Wales Applications and Admissions to Orphan Schools is a relatively small project and includes information relating to the applications and admissions of the girls and boys (at the time of the records we are keying there were two schools, one for the boys and one for the girls) admitted to the school between 1817 and 1833. The Orphan Schools were set up by the government to house orphaned children. It is both intriguing and sad to read the letters detailing the reasons why these children had been left on their own.

The Gateshead, Durham, England, Roll of Honour, 1914-1920 is also a relatively small project. It is so much fun to look through these photos of World War I veterans, and figuring out the ranks can also be a fun challenge.
