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.
