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.
