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.

Gadsby  Centenary Series

Two Brothers from Nuneaton  The Story of John and William Gadsby
Thomas The Missing Son  Is Found  Thomas Gadsby incorporating a history of the Gadsbys' arrival in Australia



Cassidy Family

Strelley / Harris  Series

As they aren't all on my Dropbox site I can't link them.  However if any readers want to access the stories please contact me on kanahookarob2@gmail.com

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.

Cheers Robyn

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.
