I've been caught up lately in a family project, researching our family tree. Once you start it sucks you in & many hours later I have compiled quite a picture of our ancestors.
It all began with an invitation to a family muster that is to happen in May. I would love to go, but it is in (outback) Queensland, It would involve a lot of travel & expense, & is not great timing.
Our relative, who was previously unknown to me, has done a lot of background work & organising so I hope it all goes off really well. She tells me they are expecting between 150 - 200 to turn up.
Hopefully in the future our stories will be easier to trace. Perhaps my love of scrapbooking & photography has something to do with it.
