I blog because I love research and writing and wish to share an educational opportunity with family and friends about our ancestors and where and how they lived. I also blog about the local history of people, places, and events in the Clarence River District in northern New South Wales.
I have been blogging on and off since 2012, but have been seriously researching and writing about our families and local history for over fifty years.
I was born and raised on the North Coast of NSW, Australia and have had an interest in Family & Australian History since childhood when my maternal grandmother told me stories of bushrangers, gold mines, and colourful family characters. As I’ve got older I’ve become more obsessed with our family history and am now following many family lines.
