My Research Interests

November 29, 2022

Today I’m having a rare full day of research. It’s quite a while since I’ve had more than a fleeting go at researching, mainly due to woking and other time issues. My aim for today is together up to date information on family members who I intend to include in the April A-Z Blogging Challenge for 2023. I haven’t decided exactly what the theme will be yet, but of course, it will be family history related.

I have a few family lines that I haven’t had time to trace yet, so they will be a priority of today and the next few weeks. I did post my research interests a couple of years ago, but I thought, now that they have expanded slightly, I should post a more complete list. I’m not necessarily researching every name on the list, right at this moment, but they are all important to me.

Following are my main research interests, listed in alphabetical order, not in order of importance.

  1. Definitely to get the most out of the A to Z some preparation is useful – I have a theme thanks to my daughter’s suggestions (occupations) – and I have done some planning – I should do some more work – April will be here very quickly. Happy researching

    • Occupations is a great theme Anne. I’ll look forward to reading about your ancestors occupations. I don’t think I’d have enough to complete an AtoZ

    Thank you for sharing your story. As a Jones i can help with information on the Jones side of my family. They lived in the Ballarat, Creswick and Ouyen areas of Victoria.


    • Thanks for you comment. I think your Jones family may be different from mine. I don’t believe any of mine were from those areas, but happy to be corrected
