Born in Northern Victoria, Australia, married to Graeme since 1979. We are proud parents of two wonderful children and grandparents of 2 young grandsons.

I love to find and share my family stories and connect with cousins. My Dad, brother and I have done autosomal DNA which has been amazing.

Lately my research has been concentrated on my paternal Morgans from Armagh, Northern Ireland. Alexander (Morgan-13510) and Ann (Lennon-678) and Kellys from Tipperary Cornelius Kelly-6084 and Mary Molloughney-1

I have a Blogger and a Wordpress blog as well as the Weebly site.

I noticed you uploaded or plan to upload a GEDCOM. Our process here is a little different than what you might find on other sites because of our goal of growing one worldwide tree with a single profile for each individual. Here's is the link:

Feel free to message me if you have any questions! TIP: If your ancestor was born over two hundred years ago, there's a very good chance she/he already has a profile on wikitree. Before creating a new profile, use the "search function" up on top to see if your ancestor is already here.
