About Anne

Family history has interested me since I was sixteen.  I wrote to an uncle whom I knew had some family history information and received the assurance that it was no disgrace to have convicts in our ancestry.

To date I have 13 confirmed ancestors who arrived in Tasmania/ Australia between 1800 – 1853.  It is only because of these men and women and those who travelled to the Colonies as free settlers  that I can write my story.  On the journey I hope to learn more about why I am the person I am.

Since my Uncle’s first letter (which I still Have) sent in December 1970 I have learnt much more and look forward to the continuing journey.
