Challenge of the Week: Thousands of people in our shared tree appear to have lived for over 115 years, or had children after they were 100, or got married before they were born. These might be simple typos ... or deep genealogical mysteries. Will you help investigate them?

Member of the Week profile image Member of the Week: Anne Tichborne has created a number of free-space profiles and mini-projects related to the Australia Project, including Kangaroo Island Early Settlers, The Wreck of the Osmanli, The Green and Gold Cookery Book, and Tasmania's Black War. "It's a really interesting way to explore history and make it come alive ... I could just go on doing those forever."
