Now then, a very interesting thing,if I say so myself, has turned up. I was having a shufty through ancestry, and found a tree with my Addis and Milward family on. Urrrrmmmmmmmmhh, I am thinking as the first people I saw where in Australia.
So I go back to my Great Great Grandparents, and it seems that one of Elizabeth Milward’s siblings went to Australia. So more delving me thinks.
When you think about it, back in the 1800’s, it must have been a very scary thing to do. I am wondering if they went as part of the farming alliance that I found out about the other day?
Also, I have made contact with someone, whose dad is my granddad’s cousin. I was so shocked. but getting all the Photographs I have scanned and sent to his son. I do hope his dad can put some names to them. as no one else is alive to tell me.
The joys of doing your family tree.
