I came to Wikitree as an experienced Wikipedia contributor, with an interest in South Australian geography and history and my ancestors' places in it.
My ancestors migrated from Great Britain and Europe to South Australia between 1838 and 1876. The earliest of those had lived in Van Diemen's Land as a free settler for over five years, since leaving England in 1832.
I have discovered that the "male lines" have generally been easier to research than female ones - it has taken more effort to learn about maternal grandmothers at almost every point on my family tree.
