Luckily Bee I didn't lose all my family tree but a portion of it. I hadn't backed it up to a flash drive for a few months. Most of my family date back to 1842 in Australia and luckily one of my family members, who I didn't know at the time, had done a lot of work on our tree back into Ireland on my fathers side and sent it to me. But some states in Australia have Birth Death and Marriage records accessible free online. When I first started I only had the names of my four grandparents and the first name of my mother's mother was wrong but I managed to track them down. I found messages on a couple of genealogy sites and got into contact with them and they have given me information and I have passed what I have onto them. I am an only child and I found relatives I never knew I had, who, I am now in contact with. I have a very large tree and even found out I am related to Banjo Paterson who grew up and went to primary school in the town I now live in. The very school that is only a few paddocks over from my house.

To back up to a disc you need a cd burner in your computer but if not you can back up to flash drives. With pictures and documents it is only really a matter of copy and paste.

Wow Kate, it's so amazing that you know all of that about your family!! Honestly, my ancestry is all over the place and I hardly know anyone unfortunately. My mother is Greek and father Sudanese. Majority of relatives of the families are mostly overseas. Speaking of genealogy I totally want to do that ancestry DNA test thing! would be pretty cool. I'm happy that you did not lose most of your family tree, because your search sounds pretty amazing. It's beautiful that you are in contact with the relatives you have now found. I googled Banjo Paterson, I don't think I've read any of his books but poetry might've been possible, in school and such- that is so cool!

There is a lovely statue of Banjo in our town square and a park just behind it as well with history about him. You probably know more about Banjo than you think, if you have ever heard or sang Waltzing Matilda, our unofficial anthem, well Banjo wrote the lyrics to that.

Our other famous bush poet and writer also features in our area. The town next to me Bowning was the home of Henry Lawson's aunt and he visited there regularly in the late 1800's and early 1900's and did quite a bit of writing there. There are even stories that Henry and Banjo drank together in the local Bowning Hotel often getting into arguments over a beer at the bar. Henry's aunts house is still standing and is beautifully restored and a café and nursery have been set up in the old stables. I even have a fig plant that has been propagated from one of the trees at the back of the house.

When I looked Banjo Paterson up, I found out that he wrote Waltzing Matilda! I have to say it's amazing that there is a stature of your ancestor in your town. A little mind blowing to find out afterwards.

That is so cool! wow. I love that.
