GeniAus - #AtoZChallenge - V is for Valour

During April 2020 the month of this #AtoZChallenge I will be sharing short posts on some of the 2,000+ descendants I have identified of my 3x Great-Grandmother, Elizabeth Phipps
Elizabeth Phipps 1785-1869 was a convict who was transported from England to New South Wales in 1814 per Wanstead

Many of Elizabeth's descendants served in the armed services in various conflicts. On ANZAC Day the day on which we remember our ancestors who served for us, let us remember the following men and women, descendants of Elizabeth Phipps.

Collating this list has taken many hours and I know that there are more of Elizabeth's descendants who should be on this list. Please let me know of others who should be on this Roll of Honour and I will add them.

Wow! that’s a big list so obviously a big family.

ScotSue said...

A mammoth task you have undertaken, but such an impressive list of your ancestors who have served their country in war - and a source of so many blog posts in the future.

Dianne said...

Impressive... and more so the ones with same surname in both wars!

And the list is growing as cousins offer me more ancestors for the list.
