Irene Dillon has Irish ancestors.


Biography



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 Irene, I am putting this message on everyone's profile that are involved with county Kerry project.

"Welcome to the County Kerry Sub-Project!

https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Project:County_Kerry

As you may have heard, WikiTree is having a source-a-thon Oct 4 - Oct 7. Whether or not you decide to participate in it is up to you. If you want to help the county Kerry project, it would be great if you could put the unsourced Kerry category on any Kerry profiles you come across that need sources. Thank you!"

Hi Irene,

I'm following up my post on your profile about your interest in continuing as an active member of the Australia Project. We really hope you would like to stay involved and look forward to hearing from you as soon as convenient.

The Australia Project page has the list of teams for you to review, as well as our minimal requirements for active membership. If you have decided that you don't have time to contribute at the moment, that is absolutely fine too, and you can rejoin whenever you wish.

Kind Regards

Hi Irene,

It has been a couple of weeks since we contacted you about your participation in the Southern Colonies Project. As we haven't heard from you, we are following up to make sure you wish to remain a member.

We understand that interests shift as we grow our shared tree and that some members may have moved on to projects more pertinent to their ancestors. If this is the case for you, please let us know.

If we do not hear back from you within the week, we will assume you have moved on to other things for the moment and remove you from the project. Please know that you will always be welcome to rejoin should your interests shift back in this direction.

Thank you so much for your participation; we genuinely appreciate it.
