The Ancestral Places Geneameme

Thanks to my genimate, Alona, for coming up with the The Ancestral Places Geneameme Challenge.

I'm late to the party but I've had a ball. It was so much fun that I might prepare one for Mr Geniaus'ancestors too.

I have enjoyed this exercise immensely as it has forced me to focus on my direct ancestors instead of engaging in Tangential Genealogy. It has made me realise that while it's a good idea to search laterally and apply the FAN Principle it is vitally important to fully research and document the lives of our direct ancestors. It's a while since I have concentrated on these lads and lasses.

Here comes a resolution - I am going to spend dedicated time over the next few months (in between travelling) looking at the records of each of my direct ancestors and adding to their stories.

Sometimes we need to have a focus - thanks again Alona for forcing me to focus.

Wow, what a great list Jill. You have as much NSW heritage as I have South Oz, so I assume your families came out early. And thanks for joining in on the geneameme, it's great to see where people's roots lie.

You are embedded in NSW just as I am in Qld. I think you should add "Peripatetic" under P ;)

Nice one Jill, I have been having fun updating my "early" research and getting all my ducks in a row, after Alona got me back working on my Blog.

I am still working on mine... I have rediscovered so much when scrolling through places in my family tree program...
Lots more to do, and a 'few' corrections to add.

I have included your blog in INTERESTING BLOGS in FRIDAY FOSSICKING at

Thank you, Chris

Coincidentally my 3 x gt gd dad Alexander McKenzie died at Glen Logan in 1891 - I'd always thought that it was Belmore - Canowindra, but further investigation revealed that it was Glen Logan. When I googled Glen Logan history - up popped @Geniaus Jill Ball !!

They were probably neighbours KerrieAnne. I don't think Glen Logan was a thriving metropolis.
