Day 20 Time Finding time to do the thing you want to do when working full time is hard. When I first saw this months list for #genealogyphoto I promised myself I would try harder to post more frequently this month. So far I've failed. I finally found the photo I was going to post for the letter O. This is Olive Constance Beatrice Ireland my paternal grandmother. Born 13 April 1887 in Willis Street Wellington New Zealand. You can find out more about her on my blog. Link in profile and search…

A for Amelia.For today's #genealogyphoto I am featuring an old A to Z blog post. Amelia BRETEL was my great grand mother. She was born in Jersey in 1852 which is part of the Channel Islands. This is according to her marriage certificate. It was her second marriage and to my great grand father Francis KITTO (DOB 1853) on 24 April 1880.  Her first marriage was to John DIMOND in 1879 when she was 27 years. They had one son that I have found so far named Alfred John DIMOND (DOB 1879). Before…

Day 29 Grandparents I like it when couples have a combined grave. Here are my paternal grand parents final resting place at Karori Lawn Cemetery Wellington New Zealand. I never met my grandfather as he died in 1953 before I was born.  When we were young we would stay at the beach with my grandmother. She liked to be called Grandma. Not Nana as she said she was not a nanny goat. Swimming building sand castles climbing over the rocks and watching the rock pools were my favourite beach…
