52 Ancestors - 2018


Mother of four.

Descended from Irish and English settlers to Australia, some of them convicts, some free settlers. One line believed to be Australian aboriginal but details are lacking.

I have lived in most states of Australia but am now settled in South Australia where the summers are wonderful and the winters just about bearable.

I began researching my family tree when I was ten, visiting my great grandparents in (to me) exotic New South Wales. I was fascinated by pictures on their walls of people in old style clothes and they brought out a family bible to show me.

I felt a connection between the past and my present which I have never lost.

Hi again, Irene. Thanks for your work on the Margarets Barkham. I went to bed to sleep on it and in the morning it was fixed! That's collaboration. Thanks again, C.

Hi, Irene. Can you have a look at Margaret Barkham? She appears to have the wrong father. I've left the source on the profile. Thanks, C.
