Von Guerard was notable for his accurateness in depicting topograpy and I liked the coincidence that you had initially chosen the same vantage points as the artist  several times.
A couple of months back, I was contacted by a PhD student from Federation University who was undertaking some interesting research. He was on the trail of the famous European landscape painter, Eugene von Guerard. Eugene von ...

DNA results arrived this morning and we have a match with a descendant of Eleazer Hughes (plus I don't think we match elsewhere). I think my hypotheses concerning Henry have proved accurate :)
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 learn about DNA methods. There are t...

Anne I am waiting on my DNA results. That should be another match. Did you use Ancestry? I'm thinking of doing the mitochondrial test too and my brother is going to do the ydna for the Craiks. I wonder if one of male cousins would do it for the Plaisted line. Might shed some light on the Norman connection.

The new type of charts introduced by MyHeritage were enough to persuade me to take out a subscription.
I was interested to read about sun charts, a new innovation from MyHeritage for displaying family trees. I have seen circular charts displayed at the Genealogical Society of Victoria and thought they looked very elegant, but...

Trove Tuesday - I found the obituary of my husband's great great uncle. I was touched that all his brothers and sisters were remembered in a death notice, including the infant George who had died nearly 90 years before.
James Ernest Young (1878 - 1942) was the youngest child of George Young (1826 - 1890) and Caroline Young née Clarke (1835 - 1879). James was born at Lamplough near Avoca, Victoria, on 28 November 1878. He was the youngest of ...

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...

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.
