Maybe DNA testing might help me to solve the origins of Henry Sullivan (1862-1943) who was made a state ward in June 1866. Was he the child mentioned in newspaper reports in May 1866?
So far in my family history research I have not used DNA testing. Document-based methods give me more than enough to go on with. However, today I decided to order Ancestry.com DNA kits to see what emerged I might learn. Ther...

A fascinating mystery - this is the first of four blog posts. In this case family lore and a photograph held by multiple family members contained important clues.

My Sepia Saturday post. My husband's great great grandfather John Way worked as a shepherd near Murrumburrah NSW in the 1860s.
This week's Sepia Saturday image is of a shepherd, photographed by Joseph Gale in the 1890s. The title of the photograph, Ninety and Nine, refers to the Parable of the Lost Sheep told in both Luke 15: 3-7 and Matthew 18:12-14...

My final post for this year's AtoZ blogging challenge concerns my fourth great uncle Fredric Mainwaring (1844-1922) who served in his job for 44 years without taking a day's leave of absence.

It can be very hard to work out who is in some family photographs.
In the early 1990s, when I started our family history research, we met Noel Tunks (1943-2008), a cousin by marriage, the 2nd great-nephew of the husband of the 2nd great-aunt of my husband. Noel was very generous in sharing T...

Revisiting a postcard collection that my husband Greg inherited
Greg's father Peter received from his father Cecil Young (1898-1975) a collection of postcards that Cecil had collected when young. When I first started our family history research I looked at those postcards and tried to dec...

Interesting that Judy Russell, the Legal Genealogist mentioned naming names in the statutes and coincidentally I came across a relative named in the NZ Statutes where the council was authorised to pay her a pension http://www.legislation.govt.nz/act/public/1922/0050/latest/DLM196111.html  Google searching helped to find :)

So true, our children often get sanitised versions of stories or we choose not to record them. Good to see some honest reportage of memorable times.

Family historian
Introduction
My family history blog expands the information in my family tree, telling some of the stories that go with the names and dates I have collected there. The people I write about are mostly from the families of Boltz, Cavenagh-Mainwaring, Champion de Crespigny, Cross, Cudmore, Dana, Gilbart, Manock, Plowright, Sullivan, Way and Young. If you and I might be related I would be delighted to hear from you (ay.familyhistory at gmail dot com).
I have also started a blog covering the history of Avoca during World War 1. Avoca is a small town in the goldfields of Victoria, Australia.
