What will happen to your research when you’re gone? I don’t have children, so none of my research will get passed down, but I’m writing biographies of ancestors and adding them to & for other ppl to use. What’s your plan?

I have a similar case - a 2C2R (with no descendants) who admitted his guilt in molesting boys in the 1950s. I'm painfully aware that those he abused may well be still living persons - I've documented it privately but I'd be uncomfortable sharing his story publicly

Whilst in Brisbane, I looked at shipboard diaries kept in . It’s always good to remember that even if your traveling ancestor didn’t keep a diary, one of their shipmates might have. William Mitchell kept a diary on RMS Roma 1888, same voyage as my ancestor

Evening I was surprised to see that my granny was addressed in this letter as 'Daisy'. She was officially Elizabeth and everyone I knew called her Lizzie. It just goes to show that the names in official documents sometimes have nothing to do with the real world...

This week I went to Brisbane to celebrate the 127th anniversary of my great-grandparents William Andrew & Minnie O’Shaughnessy. They married at Park Presbyterian, South Brisbane, 15 September 1892. Church is still there

We've been talking about passing on our research to future genealogists during tonight. Don't forget to donate memorabilia and documents to appropriate archives. This is a quote which I came across during my archives modules which I think is pertinent.

I do voluntary research for Sweden's genealogy association, and got a new assignment yesterday. It involves the tricky part of trying to navigate the less-than-wonderful Stockholm records. Excited to get that started today!
