Trove Tuesday: Location, Location, Location

I mentioned yesterday my desire to map out my family history in some way and to this end, Trove has been a fabulous resource. I've previously used a family notice found in Trove to begin a search of electoral roles and confirm some names, and again the family notices of Trove'd newspapers have turned up some wonderful gems.

"Family Notices." The Advertiser (Adelaide, SA : 1889 - 1931) 25 Oct 1902: 6. Web. 5 Feb 2013 <http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article4891551>
According to this, at the turn of the century, my great (x3) grandparents, Charlotte and Edward Black were living on Pulsford Road in Prospect, South Australia. According to Google Street View, there are still some delightful houses with period features along Pulsford Road. I wonder which one was the Black's!

You can find all the #TroveTuesday posts over at Branches, Leaves & Pollen or search the hashtag on twitter.

  1. Sharon, such a great idea to search Google Street View for addresses. I have done so previously but really should do so more often. The Family notices on Trove are such excellent sources of information.
