What a great way to put together your family history. I have mine on a website at the moment but am thinking of putting in a blog. I was wondering how to sort it out, but now having seen yours, I have got some good ideas of how to go about it.

I lived with the Cawthorn family for two years while attending High School in Hobart (~1942-44). I had been in contact with Nancy over the years but lost touch with her during the war. Would greatly appreciate any help you provide in this effort.

All the best-Margaret Thom (now MacLeod)
