About Me.

A Family Tree researcher for over 30 years and a blogger since 2010, I love to share what I find. This blog has opened up a new way to contact and keep in-touch with both family and friends. It mightn't always be genealogy related and you might not agree with my point of view but I want you to comment, ask questions and look upon this blog as 'friends having a chat'.
Enjoy!

My Day

Boy have I had fun! Yesterday I decided to sort out the family tree filing cabinet.  The amount of useless bits of paper, I checked, that have gone into the recycling bin, was huge. Today I'm sorting old family photos and have an album to put them in. I've also spent time re-checking information, on-line, that I'd scribbled onto said bits of paper.  I've got space to keep things organised and will try to do so!  The cricket is on the ABC so it will keep me company, while I sort some more.

Can You Help????

I've had this photo in my collection for years and haven't had any luck finding out who the people are. I do know that the small children are my cousins Eileen and James Smith. The mum was  Claire (Clara) Abberton. The older people can't be Claire's parents, Thomas and Louisa Abberton, because they had both died before Claire married.   I think the young boy, at the back is Tommy Abberton, Thomas' son from his second marriage. I'd love someone to help solove this mystery.

Abberton Info

Just adding some family info about my Abberton side and I hope I can make a connection.

Thomas Abberton came from Ballinakill, County Galway, Ireland, to Goulburn, New South Wales, Australia. He married Mary Torphy/Torpy and they had 15  children. They lived just out of  Goublurn in a place call Mummell.

New Blogger

I'm new to this but want to share family information and meet other family members.

 Looking for the names of Abberton, Magill, Sigrist.  These are just some of the names I'm researching. Will post more once I'm settled in.
