Mr Synott buys a chevy

I wasn’t around in 1929, but I can imagine the excitement in the street when Mr Synott brought home his new chevrolet – such an exciting event that it even made a brief note in the local newspaper.

I found some great images of 1929 Chevrolets online at http://auto.howstuffworks.com/1929-chevrolet-series-ac-international.htm including this picture

That may not be exactly the model our Mr Synott bought, but its definitely the same era.

What is puzzling me is which Mr F Synott this actually is, as I can’t find a Mr F S Synott in my records. I’m guessing he is related to Charles Forbes Goodheart Synott (a descendant of Walter Synott and Jane Seton of Ballymoyer, Co Armagh) but am more than happy to be proved wrong. It could be that the paper got his initials wrong as well.

This is yet another wonderful moment in time preserved in the Trove archive of Australia http://trove.nla.gov.au/ For anyone with any Australian family history heritage, this has got to be the number one site to go to to find out more about your Aussie family of the past.
