In my case, the “attic” was the wonderful online repository from the National Library of Australia, TROVE. Many digitized local newspapers can be found there, listing social events like birthday parties, weddings and funerals.
Such an insight into the lives of long-gone relatives!
Thank you Christi Craig and Lisa Rivero for accepting my creative non-fiction piece, “Aunt Becker’s Secret” for this unique anthology.
I am looking forward to seeing the finished book, and also reading the stories other writers have discovered in their family attics.
