I’m an Australian woman, living in Victoria.  Apart from a lengthy interest in family history I enjoy reading and writing, embroidery and quilting, Su Doku and TV, politics and current affairs, and anything that doesn’t involve me in  too much exertion. Actually I can get interested in practically anything if someone goes to enough trouble to make it interesting ! I even watched some cricket the other night.

With family history  I often find it’s the side stories which provide me with so much interest, rather then the births, deaths and marriages.

My blogs are

Bound for Australia https://boundforoz.wordpress.com/ for family history

Lazy Coffees http://lazycoffees.wordpress.com/ for books, reading,writing

Rambling around my Life http://diamant-solitaire.blogspot.com.au/ for embroidery and quilting.

    I dinna see a place to comment on the 7/27 Sepia Saturday blog, so here it is. Isn’t it amazing how something a small as a book that an ancestor kept for years suddenly adds character and flesh to the rather flat picture that records provide. Thanks, really enjoyed the post.

      Originally I didn;t have any names for the band photo so couldn’t make a link to the book.. Then some time ago a Stratford paper published the photo with the names so I was able to make the connection.
