Sorry I haven’t written any new posts, including #52ancestors, on this blog for the last couple of months. But that doesn’t mean I haven’t been doing family history research.
One of the students who had recently completed the Diploma of Family History offered to run some sessions on using WordPress for creating a family history website. I decided to have a go even though Edublogs also uses WordPress but I am using blocks rather than the visual editor I am used to in Edublogs.
I started a new blog that is dedicated just to biographies of my direct grandparents. So far I have written about:
- Grandmother – Hannah Davey
- Grandfather: Henry Lewis England
- Great grandmother: Martha Jane Colgrave
- Great grandfather: George Davey
- Great grandfather: Henry Lewis England
Working on great grandmother Julia Charlotte Chandler at the moment
Will be finding it difficult to write on further paternal grandparents as little is known about them. Trying to connect with relatives through DNA who might be able to give me more information.
I might eventually extend this new blog to biographies of other relatives but I still have quite a few of my maternal ancestors to write about yet.
Readers: How do you share information about your ancestors with your relatives?
