Thank you for the warm welcome to the group Geniaus. I will try to maintain my connection with this site however, along with my research interest, I am also a prime carer for my darling mum (85) and also my husband who have both had significant health issues over the past 3 years. Despite all, Genealogy is still my passion. As yet, I haven't even familiarised myself with the whole genealogywise site:).
Geniaus I had a look at your Woodheads but no immediate connection that I could see. My Benjamin settled in Fitzroy in Melbourne in 1850ish and before then Yorkshire around Huddlesfield area. I dont have a lot on the yorkshire end and there were a lot of Woodheads around there. Of course the name comes from Head of the Wood where the family probably originally came from in Yorkshire.
