Ancestral Places Geneameme

Ancestral Places Geneameme

Elsie Minnie Ironside and Frederick Charles Sigrist. My husband's side.
Alona Tester from started this idea, that we look at where our ancestors places of birth or where they worked.

“It doesn’t have to be where your ancestors were born, but it does have to be a place that they were associated with. For instance they lived or worked in that place.” says Alona, in her blog.

This got me thinking and using my Brother’s Keep family tree program, I did a list of places, with events attached to them. Some were vague, like Sydney or Ireland, some were precise, like Denison Street, Woollahra.

So below is a list of some of the places, associated with both the Abberton, my side and the Magill, husband’s side of our family tree and the names that go with them. I didn't get the full A-Z.
