A Treasure Trove of Information - EuroSCUG


A Treasure Trove of Information.

At EuroSCUG’s first meeting for 2017, senior computer users turned up in droves to marvel as popular local genealogist Cora Num demonstrated the wonders of the powerful Trove website.


Trove is an Australian online library database aggregator, collecting information from libraries, cultural and research organisations, and other sources. The aim is to provide free digitised information for current and future generations.

Cora showed how to find information on the website and how to organise such information for future reference. She demonstrated ways to refine your search to eliminate irrelevant entries and how to find out where the original copy of the book or photo is kept. In some cases a digital or printed copy of an item can be ordered.

After morning tea, Cora elaborated on her topic with a smaller group, while other small groups covered phones, computers and tablets for beginners, and moving files and photos between phones/tablets and laptops.

EuroSCUG meets at 10am on the first Wednesday of the month at Moruya Golf Club and local area groups meet regularly in Batemans Bay, Moruya, Tuross Head and Narooma. Monthly tablet groups (iPad and Android) are also held.

A free Open Day will be held at Moruya Golf Club during Seniors Week, from 10.30am until 12.00 noon on Wednesday 8th March. So come along and watch short demonstrations of the group’s activities and share a free cuppa with members.

COMMENTS : Due to the risks associated with comments from unidentified contributors that expose The Beagle to possible legal actions under the NSW Defamation Act 2005 No 77 anonymous or Nom de Plume comments will not be available until an alternate system of author verification can be investigated and hopefully installed.

Those who provide their REAL NAME (first name AND Surname) and a verifiable email address (it won't be published) are invited to comment below. (yes it is a pain but please comply - it would be a  shame to see your comment deleted)

Those contributors KNOWN to us and verified may continue to use their First Name for ease. The primary need for all of this is due to traceability should a legal action arise.
