Blog type: Australian genealogy, Cemetery blog

Cemeteries are an important part of our history and by preserving old cemeteries and studying the history attached to them, we can gain a greater understanding of our ancestors and their lives.

The purpose of this blog is to document and preserve the priceless records found in aging cemeteries.  It is my hope that by recording information and photos which I gather from the local cemeteries, that this will assist others with their family history research.

This blog will provide histories of local cemeteries, document individual graves and, where possible, provide a little history related to cemeteries and the people buried in them.

Since starting my research in 2009 I have collected so much information, stored it on my tree in Ancestry and hate how my ancestors lives are just dates.  I’m not organised in my research and jump from person to person; my notes are all over the place and I always think I”ll remember the sources, but invariably never do.

So today I decided to keep a blog of my discoveries in which I will attempt to be structured and organised and at the same time improve my writing skills.  May be in a 100 years from now a future descendant may get the bug and come across this blog.

The first lines I started researching were Baird from Montrose, Angus, Scotland and the McTavish and McFadyen families from the Isle of Mull.  Early last year I started on my mother’s line, Dowse from Bury, St Edmunds and Trezise from St Just in Cornwall. Along the way I have discovered – prostitution; suicide; fraud and imprisonment, learnt about the Methodist faith; the goldfields of Bendigo and Kalgoorlie; read in depth about the Anzacs in Gallipoli and the battle on the Western Front in the Great War and anguished over infant deaths in the slums of Glasgow.

I’m Anna Dunwell. I’m passionately interested in gratitude, and ways to celebrate the miracle of life. Have you ever thought that maybe it wasn’t about the journey but that you yourself are the destination, right here, right now in real time?   And that you can do something amazing that you and only you can do? That’s why I write. And I’m gradually opening up to full acceptance and appreciation of my life. I began my blog to record my journey to trade publication of my memoir Paradise Lies and E Book publication of Bringing Trauma Sensitive Yoga to Diverse Populations. And I’ve recently added a genealogy page. I also write about random wonderful people, places and things that inspire me as I lift my voice and sing. I hope you enjoy my blog.

About Thomas MacEntee

What happens when a “tech guy” with a love for history gets laid off during The Great Recession of 2008? You get Thomas MacEntee, a genealogy professional who’s also a blogger, educator, author, social media connector, online community builder and more. Thomas was laid off after a 25-year career in the information technology field, so he started his own genealogy-related business called High Definition Genealogy. He also created an online community of over 3,000 family history bloggers known as GeneaBloggers. His most recent endeavor, Hack Genealogy, is an attempt to “re-purpose today’s technology for tomorrow’s genealogy.” Thomas describes himself as a lifelong learner with a background in a multitude of topics who has finally figured out what he does best: teach, inspire, instigate, and serve as a curator and go-to-guy for concept nurturing and inspiration. Thomas is a big believer in success, and that we all succeed when we help each other find success.
