Unrelated people buried together at Beechworth Cemetery, Vic.

Posted on October 6, 2010 at 2:38am 0 Comments

I have a relative Mary Ryan who is buried at Beechworth Vic. She is buried with unknown people, presumably also residents of the Beechworth Mental Asylum where Mary also resided and died. The grave has been marked in recent years and I am happy to forward a photo to anyone interested. Edward Kelly d 1908 age 73 & John McDonald d 1922 age 57. Are they yours?

Research success

I recently planned (and have since taken) a trip to Mildura, Victoria, which was going to include some family history research. I recently purchased the death certificate for Maria GROSE, my 3 x Great Grandmother, whose death was registered at Mildura in 1945. (This is a line for various reasons I have not done a lot of research on). I was going to visit the cemetery and visit her final resting place. Never presume. The prompt arrival of the certificate revealed she was in fact buried at… Continue

Earliest Ancestor to Australia

Posted on August 24, 2009 at 1:14am 0 Comments

I recently filled out the Who are the Genealogists of Australia survey and had to check my database for my earliest ancestor.

Convict Thomas Squires earns that nod in my family arriving in Tasmania in 1830.

My first foray into personal blogging

Posted on August 22, 2009 at 12:15am 0 Comments

I maintain two blogs in my role as a Local and Family history Librarian, one for genealogy and one for local history - although it is surprising how the two can interact so much. I have RSS feeds to these blogs on my page.

I have thought for a while about starting a blog to document my own family history research, as well as talk about new resources and resourcs I like etc. So perhaps this is a good place to start for now.

I recently learned that the… Continue

Hi Liz,
Just a quick update...
...I've now launched my TOLL website:
The initial Tree is my own, but have just finished entering the Germoe TOLLs into FamilyHistorian. Just a few more entries to check, and will upload to the website in a couple of days.
Kind Regards,

Thanks - you're a legend.I will go to the group page and edit the permissions right now.

Liz, Would you be happy to be a Group Administrator for the Australian Genealogists group. I think it is wise to have more than one person with administrative privileges and you appear to fit the bill perfectly.

It's not an arduous task - I think we just need to post a general snippet occassionally and try to encourage members to use discussion forums rather than clog up the general comments area.

Cheers, Jill

Hi Liz, great to hear from you. I'm currently working on a website to showcase much of my research...
...comeback occasionally to see if there's an announcement.
Meanwhile, if there's anything you think I might have on your line - just ask (as a personal meesage).
