Travel Journal Hi Everyone, This is my attempt to keep a Diary of my trip! I expect to edit at least two entries at some point ;-)

Family Trees and BBQ's

AUSTRALIA | Sunday, 15 March 2009 | Views [514]

Righto, after a couple of days in the city, Peter Organised a open house on Saturday for some of the family to meet up at his house for a BBQ, I will now try to show how we all fit together-

I'm Liam, My Parents are Elaine and Dara, Dara's Mother is Marie, who was the only Daughter of May O'Mara and Jim Christie. Jim was one of 10 siblings whose father was John Christie.

Jim's Brother Cliff is now 97 and I met him on Saturday, Peter is Cliff's son, as is Michael, I met him and two of his three children, Machaela and Darragh.

Finally I also met up with Carmel, she is the daughter of Connie Smith, who was the daughter or Mayne Christie, Eldest Sister of Jim and Cliff.

John Christie, who is our common ancestor, emmigrated from Roscommon in Ireland during the 1800's.

Now if you followed all that, give yourself a pat on the back

Bye for now.
