I’m a retired secondary teacher of English and Humanities and have been researching the murky convict past of my family tree for many years. The history was very well hidden by preceding generations, even with older family members vehemently denying any convict connections.

I live in a suburb of Melbourne with my husband and our miniature poodle, Teddy. I have five grandchildren.
