Family History

When I started this blog earlier this year my main aim was to share photographs of our travels. It was also a way of reaching a wider audience with my writing. If you enjoy reading my stories I have just added a new short story to the ‘My Creations’ page.

Recently, however, my blog has allowed a distant relative I didn’t know I had, to reach out to me. My second cousin, Elizabeth, has been researching our family history and knew enough to google my name and the town where I live, and found my blog!

We have started to exchange photographs and information about our families. My grandmother on my father’s side was Elizabeth’s grandmother’s sister.

What amazing photographs! I look forward to finding out more about our shared family.
