Rootstech Surprise Announcement



My friends at Familysearch have asked Rootstech Ambassadors to share this announcement but they are keeping their lips sealed about its content until next week.

I checked the time for my home city at www.timeanddate.com. If you want to be first to hear the news then check out your time zone too.




It's an Honour

A former colleague of Mr GeniAus recently sent him this photo. It reminded me that I should get around and photograph the Honour Boards on which our family members' names appear.

There is no guarantee that these boards will not disappear over time.

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....
