Trove Tuesday: Obituary of Vera Auld

Just a small post for Trove Tuesday today with double bonus points with the obituary I found not published on Obituaries Australia.

Nepean Times now online

The obituary that I came across had been published in the relatively newly released The Nepean Times, the digitisation of which was supported by Penrith City Council. Most readers of the online newspapers on Trove will be familiar with the 1954 cut off date due to copyright restrictions, the Nepean Times on the other hand covers the period 1882 through to 1962. This post relates to an obituary for Vera Auld which was printed in the Nepean Times in this later period of 1961.

To date I didn't have a entry in the Auld database for Vera, but based on the information provided within the obituary it shouldn't be a hard exercise to find where Vera's husband William links in...but that is another exercise.

Obituaries Australia

If you do come across a printed obituary, take the additional time and double check to see if your individual has been recorded in Obituaries Australia. If not, submit your obituary via the online submission form a relatively quick process.
