#ANZAncestryTime Getting to know you post
Sue Wyatt suggested we blog about our interests as well as Tweeting tonight. She's having a break from compiling the Tweets from our weekly get-togethers and this might make her task a bit easier when she resumes.
So it's a good opportunity to reflect on the following prompts:
Tell us about yourself and how you became interested in family history.
I blame my parents for getting me into family history ;) I was put on a microfilm reader at Mitchell Library at the age of 15 to look for a photo of my g/grandfather. Over 40 years later Walter (Dick) Forfar still gives me trouble.
Tell us about your research interests and where your ancestors came from.
My ancestors were English, Scottish, Irish, & Welsh. Some were convicts. My husband's tree led me to research in Barbados. My g/mother and her sisters were swimmers in their youth. I have written about them here
What project are you working on currently? Do you have a favourite branch of family or ancestor?
My current project is Tidy up your Filing Alex ! and learn how to use Family Historian software. I still want to break down the brick wall of what happened to Robert James Daw???
What about you? Tell me how you became interested in family history.
Writing this post has reminded me that I want to set up pages on my blog for my Convict Ancestors and one for my ancestors who served in the military. What else could I do to improve my blog?
