Diane was referred to me by my Cousin David Conolly, who himself is a fantastic contributor to researching our Conolly family genealogy. He works closely with Diane and they have made a remarkable contribution to our understanding of our family's history. .
I followed up with Diane last week and she offerred to assist me add detail on my mothers McIntosh family geneaology, (Mabel Jean McIntosh-my mum). I knew that it went back to Robert McIntosh Bandmaster with Governer Lachlan Macquarie..
My Uncle Cliff McIntosh (former McIntosh Clan head for Australia)had created a wonderfully researched record of the McIntosh Family from Robert's time with many family charts..This is contained in his Book titled Bandmaster to Farmer/Settler 1984. (ISBN 0 9591325 0 3)
I have liaised with Diane providing charts from Uncle Cliffs book,using her vast knowledge of Wikitree process and its important confidentiality and accuracy checks and rules especially. Diane has started to check these and already remarkably, has entered/validated for Wikitree so many entries....one week later! .But this is a long job as my ancestors had very large families
Diane our family owes you already a great debt of gratitude for this help and I look forward to eventually extending our knowledge and also some pictorial records of our family and also hopefully more detail about their contributions to Australia since their arrival in the early 1800's.
