Hi all, I'm back and catching up nicely on everything now. If I haven't replied to you, please send another message. 24th Feb 2018

Irene Dillon has Irish ancestors.
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.

Hello Irene, I am not sure where or how to raise this question. It may already have been answered. (re Australia place names).

After noticing some people are clearing up America/USA names, I have realised that in Australia we maybe need to think about accuracy. I have my G-g-father Jabez R Orton born in in 1841 in Melbourne Victoria, but probably that should read: Melbourne, Port Phillip District, New South Wales, Australia. I also show his brother Thomas born in 1837 in Hobart, Tas., but should that be changed to Hobart, van Diemans Land, New South Wales, Australia. How best do we show the historically correct names without making life more difficult for future generations of amateur genealogists? What does the Australia Project group recommend? Alistair Orton.
