I am a seventh generation Australian descended from a number of convicts and free settlers. Names and dates are essential in family history research but I like to put “flesh” on the old bones. Here are some of the interesting stories I’ve collected over the years about my ancestors and relatives.
In my day job as a teacher, I enjoy passing on my love of history and words to my students.
