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'.

Those Places Thursday.

This is today's prompt from GeneaBloggers, so here goes.

Now a sewing centre, it was once the Salutation Hotel, where my grandfather, Thomas Abberton was the licensee. Situated in Goulburn, in Auburn Street it still has the beautiful wrought iron lacework. I went inside and it felt strange to be walking on the same floor that he had done.

This is a photo of a photo of the Mummel (Mummell) School that my grandmother, Louisa Nicolls, taught in from 1885 until she married in 1890. It is in much better condition, today and it lovely inside. You can still see the outline of where the desks were.

What is your Those places Thursday?
