August is family history month and if you are a family historian, Trove wants to celebrate your stories in the Trove blog. Share your favourite Trove discovery about your family, the best Trove tip you have for a budding family historian, or any thoughts you have about how Trove has changed the way you research. Feel free to include a photo of yourself or of something you've uncovered through your digging. (Please only share images which are out of copyright or for which you own the copyright.)
Trove will compile a selection of the stories we receive into a blog post that will be published in family history month. Everyone who contributes will receive an 'I love Trove' badge!
Just send your stories to Trove@nla.gov.au
by Wednesday 30 July.
We would also love to hear your stories that you may have uncovered in the library. Email us or leave a comment below.

The National Library of Australia is pleased to announce that the following newspapers, digitised by the National Library through the Australian Newspaper Plan program, have been recently added to Digitised newspapers and more on Trove. Many of these newspapers are currently being added to Trove and further issues will become available shortly.
Through Trove, the national resource discovery service, there is now free online access to over 13 million pages from over 700 Australian newspapers. All of the digitised newspapers are fully text-searchable and users can enrich and enhance the data through subject tagging, text correction and annotations.
