Oh I'm having a ball..... Gadsby, Ford, Cassidy, Kerr, Strelley, Harris and McBride families you know I have been busy writing while not blogging.
I haven't blogged in over a year but I have not been idle. Here is a list of titles I have worked on since I began the blog. Writing is an easy way to encapsulate the family research into something that people can easily grasp rather than charts and drawings. Thanks to everyone who has shared pictures and information.

Over the next months I think I will profile the most interesting characters and add a few stories on a couple I'm working on.
Family History Tip of the day:
Here's one of the theme posters from our Reunion
It's generated from a Wordle of all the names and surnames of the family tree themed to our colour scheme. Fun and easy to do.
