Since I was quite young I have been fascinated by family history.
As I have grown older the tree has grown larger and the surprises just keep coming. More and more information becomes available every day as records across the world are digitised. Many of the dead-ends have opened up to reveal amazing stories. Recently I have discovered First Fleet convict ancestors, generations of Scottish Baronets, followed my Jeanneret family back to Switzerland. There are many more stories of discovery, heroism, hardship and more. One of my recent thrills has been connecting with a multitude of Maori cousins.
