Bio: Thank you for taking time to check out my blog. There are a couple of reasons why I started researching my family tree. The first is that I want to leave my children some history. I think knowing where you came from is important and can answer many questions about our own lives and character. I am researching my own family - Smith and Brown from Scotland and also my children's father's family - Kent from Australia, England and Ceylon. My second reason for researching is that I seem to be the black sheep of my family. My dad and I connected and we were alike in many ways but my mother and sisters are very different from me. I hope that researching my family tree - and blogging about it - will answer some questions for me.
