I started delving in family trees with my aunt Edna in the bowels of the B, D & M building in King William Street Adelaide, at the time doing research for myself (Bleckly Bowley & Duncan) and my first wife (McPharlin). An enigmatic entry in a family bible led to a McPharlin reunion on Lysander farm in Balaclava, mid-north South Australia named after the ship "Lysander" that brought them to this Australia. The ship's bell was on the farm.
My second tree led to a 90th birthday/Peterson reunion in Ironbank, South Australia, Behind my desk I have 10 large boxes of genealogical material: trees, photos, certificates, personal recollections, correspondence, newspaper clippings and the researches of several genealogists, to upload. I'll be here a while.
