Welcome…

…to my website, where you’ll find information on:

Genealogy…

…the nuts and bolts of family history. The puzzle of finding out who my ancestors actually were. I’m tracing my ancestors back into the Eighteenth Century and solving a few mysteries along the way.

Family and Community History…

…telling the story of my ancestors lives and the communities in which they lived. I want to understand what daily life was like for my ancestors and how they were affected by the world around them.

Genealogy, Family History and Literature

Literature…

…and history go together well. Literature often provides insights into the past.  I’ll be reviewing the novels I read and looking at some of the people who wrote and read them.

Recording the Present

Recording the Present..

…because the world around us today is tomorrow’s history. I’ll be out and about with my camera recording the places, people and events I find along the way.

I was so busy focussing on the butterfly, that i totally missed the bee sitting underneath.
