Surprises in Store for Researchers as Family History Centre Opens

“History never fails to amaze Paulette Flint,” according to a report in Australian newspaper The Gladstone Observer today.

"There are always surprises," Ms Fint told the newspaper.

The article continues: “A member of the Gladstone District Genealogical Society since 1992, Ms Flint has done a great deal of digging on both her side of the family and her husband's.

‘There's such a mix of ancestors - you can have a convict on one side and a minister of religion on the other,’ she said.

‘You can just go on and on.’

Gladstone region residents will have even more opportunity to do their own research when the society officially opens its FamilySearch Centre this Sunday.”

The Gladstone Observer reports that the society's recent affiliation with FamilySearch International means The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints’ genealogical records are now accessible.
