You are off to a great start! I can't wait to read about those New England ancestors, especially the Whites!

Heather - you get a gold star for even finding this site!!
I started this as a trial/draft and probably posted it out to the world "by accident"!! Clearly I'd better do another post soon! However all my photos and details are at home, and I'm still being grandma with my latest granddaughter - 13 days old. Thanks for your encouragement.

Oh how I'd like to be your cousin Celia but sadly none of those families are in my tree.

Sigh. Too bad. Close but no cigar, eh? And as far as I know, no one in any of my lines headed for Australia or NZ. Well, except for my daughter & son-in-law & 1st grandchild who worked in NZ for about 2 years, and visited Aus. :)


Family, friends, and others - I hope you enjoy these pages about our ancestors and their lives. Genealogy has become somewhat of an obsession, more than a hobby, and definitely a wonderful mystery to dig into and discover. Enjoy my writing, and contact me at celia.winky at gmail dot com if you have anything to add to the stories. ... Celia Lewis
