family leaves and branches

Family Leaves and Branches
Blog type: Australia, Family

This website was put together after attending the 2015 Society of Australian Genealogist’s “Lost In” Weekend. In particular, two webinars stood out: Putting the Family into Family History, presented by Martyn Killion, and Passing on Your Family History, presented by Heather Garnsey.

Covering topics such as engaging your relatives in their family history, organising your research, and, asking where will your family history end up, I realised that the time had come to start presenting my more than 35 years of research in a format that I hope will attract, and interest, readers throughout the world.

A few credentials: Catching the genealogical bug in my mid teens, by 1991 I had completed four years of study at the University of New England on Local and Applied History and went on to complete the Diploma of Family Historical Studies from the Society of Australian Genealogists in 1994. I’m a past secretary of the Australasian Federation of Family History Organisations and I’ve been the administrator of the North Antrim Local Interest List for the past 10 years.

I am currently a committee member for The Surname Society  in the role of social network coordinator and newsletter editor, as well as a member of the Diploma Committee for the Society of Australian Genealogists.

I have also been very fortunate to utilise my research skills for various book authors, including my own book, Family and Local History Sources in the Sydney Area, which was published back in the days when you had to physically visit repositories for your research, and manually wind microfilm reels!

Unless otherwise specified, material on this website is the result of my personal research. I have tried to verify all material but due to the nature of genealogy, information obtained by me from relevant repositories and contributing individuals may have been incorrectly transcribed from original documents or incorrectly recalled from passed-down family memories. I welcome all notifications of any errors so that they may be corrected as well as any additional information you may have knowledge of. Make sure to check back regularly as further material is added and/or revised on a regular basis.

The surnames listed on this website are those of my personal family history as well as those of my significant “other-half”. Please do contact me if you think you are related as I have a wealth of information which I do not plan to make publicly available on this website.

And finally, it has taken me many years and considerable expense in researching these family histories – please be considerate and do not reproduce any part of this website without first seeking permission from myself.

the great ancestor dig

The Great Ancestor Dig
Blog type: Family

Hi and welcome to my blog!

I have been doing my genealogy research for 5 years now. My obsession began when I saw an ad while recovering from an illness I caught in Mexico in 2010. I have never looked back! At the beginning I was just a name collector, collecting names and dates from vital records and not really getting into the story of those ancestors’ lives. Boring right? That’s what I thought too. I knew there had to be more to this family history thing than just names and dates and boy was I right! Every record that I uncover leads to another 10 questions and sends me off into a new direction!

For the last 5 years I have been focusing on the lives of my husband’s ancestors. My husband’s family are French-Canadian from the Maniwaki and Gracefield areas of Quebec. I have done so much research on them and have gotten so “close” to them that you may see me refer to them as “MY” ancestors! I am very protective of them all! If it were not for the thousands and thousands of ancestors over the years, I would not have the most important person in my life today, my husband.

I created this blog as a way to reach out to others that may be researching the same surnames as myself, help others that may be just beginning their journey into family history and write out my brickwalls and other family research problems that I may be having, all while celebrating the discoveries that I make along the way!

I will also be posting about my journey through the PLCGS (Professional Learning Certificate in Genealogical Studies) from NIGS (National Institute for Genealogical Studies) as well as my goal to become a Certified Genealogist (CG) through the Board of Certified Genealogists (BCG).

I hope you will continue to read my blog and and share your stories with me as well!
