52 Ancestors Week 12 - Same - surnames
I'm a bit late with my week 12 post as I have been busy sorting stuff for a possible move. The only "same" theme I could come up with was for same surnames in both my paternal and maternal ancestors.  This  "same but different" theme will carry over to next...

please share for Sophia
This is me searching for my grandfather. There is not much I know about him. He used to be an English soldier during World War 2 and fell in love with my German grandmother in 1945. She worked as a nurse in Prenzlau, Germany where they met at a military hospital. He wanted to take her back home ...

52 Ancestors Week 14 - Favourite photo
My favourite photo is of my maternal grandmother, Daisy Marion MORGAN   and her sister Clarice May MORGAN. Clarice was born in September 1905 and Daisy in August 1908. I think this photo would probably have been taken in about 1910 or 11. Clarice and Daisy ...

52 Ancestors Week 10 - Brain Storming - Thank you Allan FLEMING!
The optional theme for week 10 is 'stormy weather' but I couldn't come up with anything to fit that theme so I changed it slightly to 'Brain storming'  to suit a recent article I found on my mum's cousin, Allan FLEMING.  The print is faded and a little hard...

Introduction
I've been researching my ancestry for about 15 years and loving every step of the journey. Over the years many mysteries have been solved and I hope more information will be found in the future. I love to find other family members so if you think you may be connected please don't hesitate to make contact. 

My blog http://ancestorchaser.blogspot.com.au/  is a tribute to the stories of my ancestors and loved ones

My ancestry is Australian, New Zealand, Scotland, England, Wales, Ireland and Germany (Prussia).
Bragging rights
I am blessed with two wonderful children and one gorgeous grandson so far.
