The other day I was nominated for the One Lovely Blog Award by Alona from Lone Tester and also Deb from A Pocket Full of Memories.

The other day Luvvie Alex from Family Tree Frog suggested we tweak our blog this weekend. Geniaus also thinks it’s time for a mini-makeover. Don’t they know it’s not spring yet?

As you know I’ve had an interest in the … More A certain lack of wisdom?
Once again Jill aka GeniAus has posed another end-of-year geneameme for us. She thinks we’re too tough on ourselves and need to reflect on the positives we’ve achieved in 2013 rather than all the things we wished we’d accomplished. So here’s my response. 1. An elusive ancestor I found was – no new ones this year but … More Accentuate the Positive Geneameme 2013
Today marks the 4th anniversary of my adventure into the blogosphere. It was a very tentative experiment at first, arising from my lack of knowledge of webpage design. Once I learned about the Geneabloggers community, I was no longer comparatively isolated in Australia’s Top End. Little did I know how many doors blogging would open, how … More Happy 4th Blogiversary to me!
