Secrets in the attic

I got bitten by the genealogy bug after finding a box of old documents in the attic. Honestly, it's true! It was a dark and stormy night...

We sat on the rug in front of the fire one chilly November evening and opened up the box to find a treasure of birth, death and marriage certificates we didn't know we had, along with a photograph album.

It set us on a trail which, as every family historian knows, will forever continue - a classic "all about the journey."

The process also set my writer's brain buzzing and inspired my mystery novel Blood-Tied and continues to feed me with ideas for plots.

But that's another story. This blog is about sharing things I have learnt while researching the lives of our ancestors and maybe a few little secrets I've uncovered on the way...
