Today I wrote about my Great grandfather Edward Henry, I have one newspaper clipping I have found about him falling down the stairs at Newtown Train station and fracturing his skull. He was taken to Prince Alfred Hospital. Found in the Sydney Morning Herald dated Tue 13 Aug 1912
I also got to write about my Great Great grandfather David Hepburn Shearer, the guy who took of to a whole new world at the age of 20. Coming from a fishing community in the Scottish Islands of Orkney, it is no surprise that he had a love of the sea! Making his way up the ranks to Master by age of 29, he spent a lot of time on the ocean! I have a fair bit of intelligence gathered on my Scottish relative!

My name is Davina and I have been researching my family history since 2011. I started with almost nothing but ended up with a wealth of information and I needed an outlet to show and display all the information I have found.
