I have “discovered” a whole bunch of new relatives in Victoria. They are descended from Mary Ann Nicholson, who is my maternal great-grandmother. Exciting times!

Still trying to track down what happened to my maternal grandmother in Perth between the years of 1902-1925. I’ve sent out a few emails to organisations but, as yet, no replies.

Got some great tips from the Tea Gardens Hawks Nest Family Research Group which I visited recently.

In geekier news, I’ve finally settled on MacFamilyTree software for recording the family history. The Ancestral Quest software was okay, but it was a bit of a kludge on a mac (ported from Windows) and saving files was tricky.
