Jenny Coates, who is from Victoria, Australia, has been blogging at Conversations With Grandma: Genealogical Journeys in Wangaratta since 2013. She writes, “The purpose of my blog is to tell the stories of my grandmother’s family in Wangaratta, Victoria, and to record my research journey. Quite often I write about other interesting people in the town, as they interacted with my grandmother’s family and added to the character and dynamics of the town.”
You can find a list of the surnames she is researching at My Family Surnames.
Jenny added, “I started blogging in early 2013 with a WWII related post about someone else’s family heirloom. I soon realised that I had a lot of interesting stories to tell that revolved around my grandmother’s family, and that my first post didn’t fit the theme I had in mind. I deleted that first post and set about honouring my grandmother and all our chats about family and the Australian town where they had lived since 1838.”
Happy Blogiversary Jenny!
