Welcome to the blog on my family – and possibly your family too!
After a number of years of collecting dead people into my family tree, I thought it might be time to start telling some of their stories. My original intent was to publish the more scandalous stories of my ancestors, but I’m easily distracted so some of posts are on whatever comes to mind.
Start by having a look at a quick outline of my gg-grandparents, with their parents and children. They’re split into paternal and maternal sides to make them a little shorter! I’ve started writing up some of their stories which you’ll find linked on their names.
And if you find one you like, check back regularly. I update the stories as I find new information or new relatives.
If you’re interested in blogging YOUR family tree, I’ve added the article I wrote for the NZ Genealogist magazine in 2012. If you have other pointers you’d like to add, leave a comment! And if you need more convincing here are Six Reasons to Blog about Your Ancestors and How can blogging help your family history? from Legacy.
Updated: 21 October 2016 – changed the format (yet again!) and added a lovely family photo. My Gran Lorna is the cool one in the sunnies!
