Who is Ralph?

Whenever we visit Mr GeniAus' cousin he sets us a geneatask.

This cousin is a bit of a bowerbird who has many lovely items that have come down through the family to him.

The Miniature of Ralph Weatherburn

This miniature, which thankfully is named, was amongst the cousin's mother's belongings. Our cousin wants to know who Ralph is and if he is a relation. As I have researched cousin's paternal line fairly thoroughly I am guessing that if Ralph is related it is on his mother's line. 

Inscription on the back of the miniature

The purpose of this post is to see if I can find anyone who knows anything about Ralph Weatherburn who died on 27th July, 1830.

A quick bit of internet searching has found the info below....

Four appearances in Birmingham

I was gobsmacked to find that I would be taking part in four presentations at THE Genealogy Show in Birmingham, England in June 2019. This granny from downunder will be taking to the stage with  geneastars from several countries in what promises to be a truly international event.

I can't wait to hear from those overseas presenters whose books I have read or who I have only been able to read about online.

Several of my genimates have indicated that they are planning a geneajourney to research their ancestors and combine it with attendance at  THEGenealogy Show. This is the perfect opportunity to combine research with learning and networking with  your genimates. If you have been considering a trip to the old country please think about joining us.  Will I see You there?


You can find the full program online from the links below:

Program for Friday 7th June
Program for Saturday 8th June

My program for THEGenealogy Show includes individual presentations on two of my favourite topics, Australia and Blogging, an interview of a genealogy rockstar and a shared presentation with two British experts.

Friday 7th June
12.30 - 1.30pm  Genealogy blogs for you

2:30 - 3:30 pm Kirsty Gray (England) - The True Life of an Heir Hunter – Interviewed by Jill Ball (Australia), DearMYRTLE (USA) and Mags Gaulden (Canada)

Saturday 8th June 
10:30 - 11:30am  Lost Cousins Down Under

12:30 - 1:30pm Jill Ball, Janet Few and Kirsty Gray Surname Studies – the why, the how and much more!

As the descendant of English, Irish and Scottish convicts and free settlers in Australia I will be remembering my ancestors when I take to the stage in Birmingham. I hope to do them proud.

GeniAus - On Stage In Birmingham

I can keep a secret.

When I saw this notice on Twitter a few minutes ago I just had to jump onto my computer and share the news.

 

I have been wanting to tell the world but had to wait until the officials made it official. I am thrilled to be speaking at this international event in Birmingham in June 2019. I am both excited and humbled to be included in this program of speakers from many nations.

I have had a sneak peek at the full program and it is a ripper.

The organisers will announce the remainder of the presenters and the full program over the coming days prior to the commencement of ticket sales.

I hope to see you in Birmingham.




Smack Boys

On a recent visit to Ramsgate,Kent in England I came across "The Ramsgate Home for Smack Boys" and  wondered who were "The Smack Boys". 

As you can see from the second photo below the building with a blue door is right on the edge of the Harbour in Ramsgate.  


The Ramsgate Home for Smack Boys

Looking across the Harbour to The Ramsgate Home for Smack Boys

Good old Google came to my aid and provided me with some history on both the building and  the Smack Boys. You can read all about it right here:

https://historicengland.org.uk/listing/the-list/list-entry/1376868
http://www.portoframsgate.co.uk/royal-harbour-marina/historic-ramsgate/

I wonder if any of my genimates have ancestors who were Smack Boys.
