Australian Royalty

In Australia it’s seen as a badge of honour to have in one’s family tree a convict who was transported from the British  Isles during the late 18th and early 19th centuries to the new colonies. Oftentimes genies lament the lack of such a person in their ancestry, when one can prove a link to a convict it is time for a genealogy happy dance. .

Australian Royalty: Convicts and their ancestors in Australia are given a pseudo Royal status and commonly known as Australian Royalty.




My genimate, Jenna Mills  posted this suggestion for the Geneadictionary during #genchat on Twitter today. It originally came from Genealogy Jen.

Genevu – That moment when you’ve read about someone else’s relatives so many times you think they’re yours.


A New Page

From time to time I come across a Geneapoem that I enjoy but am loathe to publish here lest I infringe copyright. So this morning when I found a nice poem about a Grandma  I decided to create this new page where I can link to geneapoems that I find in my meanderings. I hope you enjoy them too.

I’d appreciate your help in adding to this list.
