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'.

Well Christmas is over and I can get down to some very serious family tree research. Yesterday I was able to fill in a Pedigree chart for my youngest child and found several gaps, to explore. Some of the surnames that I am researching are Sigrist, Hudson, Chasmar, Vaughan, Jasper & Abberton. Please contact me if you have any of these names. Who knows we could both find 'missing links'!

I've been working on my husbands side of the family, mainly his mum's. The Sigrist family are interesting as Christoper Sigrist went to London, married Mary Ann Hudson, had several children and them they all came to Australia, at different times. I'm have a great time tracing them.

I've just spent 5 hours doing research at the NSW State Archives, at Kingswood. What a treasure trove of information. I held documents that my 3x great-grandfather signed, when he was insolvent. Had copied letters my grandmother wrote, while she was a teacher. Read probate packets from other branches of my tree. A very exciting day!
