Born in Victoria, Australia, Female, Married with 2 children and a cat.
I started off reading a family book that my father gave me when I was 16 years old. This was researched by unknown relatives and had no references to where the information came from. I found the book really interesting and decided to start investigating if these details were correct.
Then six years ago, my mother-in-law wanted to research about her mother and extended family. This is how I was grabbed by the genealogy bug!
