A Kiwi in search of her Irish, English & Scottish tribes

Five year blogiversary

What a cracking year it has been for me, but perhaps not for this sadly neglected blog!  I have been busy finding ancestors, writing IHGS assignments, as well as attending genealogy events and a family reunion.

I think my absolute favourite discovery was the gravestone of my  3 x great grandparents, Michael Burke and Bridget Flynn, in Wellshill Cemetery, Perth, Scotland.

Here’s to many more discoveries in 2016, and perhaps a few more blog posts!

  1. Congratulations on the blogiversary.

    That gravestone is pretty special. Did you visit in person?

  2. I dream of finding a gravestone like that !

  3. I don’t know how I missed this Maggie- but it’s great to see it here today! Haven’t done any genealogy for ages, but someone posed a question on another blog that sent me scurrying for an answer… Have made a blog post that includes a screenshot of the headstone, and a link to your blog…
