May I introduce you to....

Thanks to my Genimate, Tessa Keough, for her invitation to be interviewed for the  Geneabloggers "May I introduce you to" series. I was rather chuffed when I received Tessa's invitation several weeks ago. It was published yesterday on the geneabloggers site.

Tinsel Town

As I was looking for a cemetery photo to adorn a post on the Geneadictionary I came across this photo of Ben Hall the Bushranger's grave in Forbes Cemetery.  I snapped this image in April last year when visiting my Great-Grandmother's grave.

Tinsel Town!

I can't fathom why the grave was adorned with Christmas Tinsel in April.
