Long-term followers of my blog will have read many posts about the Gavin family, either searching for them in Ireland, their links to the convict Gavans, or the young men who went to World War I.
Thanks to my recent posts and last year’s Anzac Day post, a 3rd cousin has got in touch with me. She holds many photos of her branch of the Gavin family and we’re hoping we can sort out some blanks on photos we each have. She’s been inspired to start her own blog and has put up some wonderful photos of the young Gavin men in uniform and their parents. I’ve been thrilled to finally put faces to the names of these people I’ve known about and been researching for so long. Louise also has lots of family anecdotes so it will be interesting to learn more about the family through her stories rather than just through documents.
I’m really hoping I may yet be able to put names to some of the faces on this Wordless Wednesday photo.
This is the link to the Gavin Coman blog. Why not pop over and have a look at the photos and say g’day to Louise.

That is great news! Definitely shows the power of blogging.
Indeed Helen! Louise has very generously shared photos with me directly as well.
A dream come true! If only a potentially blogging cousin with photos of my Turners would get in touch with me!
I’ll keep my fingers crossed for a Turner descendant with photos 😉
