What countries and other locations are you interested in researching?
Scotland, Ireland, England, Germany, Austria, Italy, France, USA, Canada
What is your level of genealogy knowledge?
Intermediate Family History Researcher
If you are a genealogy expert, what are your specialties?
While I don't consider myself an expert in September 2020 I will have successfully completed 152 courses and about to graduate for the ninth time with Learning Certificates in Genealogical Studies Methodology, Australian, English, Irish, Germany, Eastern Europe, American and Canadaian records. My study continues with a course on Librarian website aimed at setting up my own website. My research project replacing studies is covering passengers on two ships my parents came to Australia on in 1911 and 1912 with a view to establishing if any passengers knew each other prior to departure or after arrival. All courses have been both enjoyable and have taught me much.
For what reason did you start genealogy research?
To find out more about my ancestors and to replace my hours at work with study after I retired.
