Dates & names are just the building blocks you start with.
As they say: it’s about the dash between the birth & death dates.
Pauleen Cass is a family historian with a passion for discovering and recording the stories of her ancestors’ lives. It must be a passion because she’s been researching for 36 years! She is a Queenslander with family roots that go back to the 1850s. Her immigrant ancestors came from Ireland, Scotland, England, Wales and Bavaria. She has published the story of her Kunkel-O’Brien family and also records her discoveries in her blog, Family History Across the Seas.
We were honored to have Pauline conduct a very interesting presentation at our club meeting today. A fascinating insight into the family research phenomenon which has besotted so many people with a passion to delve into, & record, the history of their ancestors.
Pauline told us some wonderful stories about her own research, & also how to start researching & the plethora of information resources currently available.
Thankyou Pauline! A fascinating presentation.
