Story
Tagline
Genealogist, writer and speaker in Sydney, Australia; author of 'Social Media for Family Historians'.
Introduction
I have a background in psychology and computers and a love of history and when you add all these together the result is genealogy. I want to understand why things, and people, are the way they are, and these answers can only be found in the past.

Part of the original convict-built Cox's Road down the Blue Mountains from Mount York, with rain gutters cut into the rock, and holes for fence railings to keep the cattle in.

After taking all day to descend this road there was Collit's Inn at the bottom for a hot bath and a warm bed.

It is amazing how much information can be gained from newspaper family notices, and in particular funeral notices. Here is an example from Trove in the Sydney Morning Herald of Tuesday 27 November 1900, on page 10:   I had been searching for the death of…

Collit's Inn was the first inn (1823) on the other side of the Blue Mountains, catering to travellers on Cox's Road. When the new road came down Victoria Pass instead Collit's Inn was bypassed and the owner, Pierce Collits, built The Rose Inn on the new road.

Collit's Inn has been restored and is now a B&B and caters for weddings and other occasions.

I think you are better off publishing parts of your tree as separate articles in a blog than as a full family tree website as produced by most family tree programs. Allow me to demonstrate by searching for a name, Riley, and a place, Naigani, that I am…
