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!

What are you goingto do today?

Morning,
For those of us in Sydney, it is  raining and has been all night, something we haven't had for awhile. Being wet it is a perfect day to stay inside and do family tree research.

I don't know if this will show up as a link, but if you had ancestors that lived in the Holroyd area, you might be able to help them out.

Call for submissions of Holroyd pioneers
www.parramattasun.com.au
If your ancestors lived in Holroyd prior to 1927, these ladies want to hear from...
 
 
This link is to the new Discovering ANZACs site and I'm going to spend some time searching through it.
 
www.FamilySearch.org  is another good site to search. There are family tress on it but remember they are only as good as the information the person had. The indexes that you can search are great.
 
If you are trying to use the NSW BDM's and are having problems here are a couple of tips,
1) If you don't know all the details you can use the wildcard *
2) Go yes for the date range and you get better results.
 
Now if you don't feel like doing research, you can always find a good book, knit or quilt.
 
Stay dry,
Lilian
