Week 2 - Sunday 14 August
August is National Family History Month in Australia and Australian Family and Local History bloggers thought it would be a great idea to have a - Blogging Challenge! Everyone is welcome to join in, even if you don't live in Australia, we'd love to hear from you and hear your stories.
Blogger Anne Young reminds us that 16 August 1891 was the date the Shearers' Strike Monument was dedicated. This week why don't you honour your working ancestors and the challenges they faced in their occupations?
Whether they were a butcher, a baker, a candlestick maker or something more exotic, tell us about their working conditions and what you have learned about them. Did they have a guild? Did they have to wear special clothes or a uniform? What hours did they work?
Share your stories with us on or around Sunday 14 August and link them using the Mr Linky widget below so we have one central place to read all the stories on this theme.
