About me and my blog

This is the first blog I have created.  Hopefully it turns out as good as I imagine.  I'm sure there will be a lot of editing as I learn what blogging is all about!

In a nutshell - I was born into the Nash family in 1974 in a small town in country Victoria.  In 1999 I moved from the South West of the state to the North East.  I married my husband in 2009 and three years later our handsome boy was born.

I have been interested in genealogy since I was about 18.  I have conducted extensive research on numerous branches of my family tree.  With the help of many family members, near and far, I was able to compile my first book in 2000.  This book is about the Bunston family, my fathers paternal grandmother was a Bunston.

Although most of my research time has been devoted to the Bunston side, I have also spend many hours looking elsewhere.  Recently, branching out to my husband's family as well.  The surname page lists some of the names that appear in my research - I am yet to count how many I have in my tree.

My ancestors are predominately English, originating mainly in Somerset.  We have spread far and wide with families migrating to Australia (where I am), Canada, New Zealand and the United States.

My aim is to use this blog to share photos, research and stories about and for my vast family.


  1. Welcome to blogging Georgie, I'm sure yours will be wonderful and that you'll thoroughly enjoy it. Just ask if you have questions and I'll try to help.

    1. Thanks Kerryn. I've always wanted to create a genealogy page, but never got around to it. I always thought it would be too hard... I can't wait to really get into it. I see a lot of hours on the computer ahead of me.

  2. Welcome, Georgie... what an adventure lies before you. You will find the blogging community are always willing to help, and the only silly question is the one not asked. We all had to start somewhere... good luck and enjoy.

  3. Congratulations Georgie on making a start. I am sure you will find blogging a great way to document and share your family history.

  4. Now you need to add some widgets to your page layout so we can follow you ;) !

  5. Thanks for the support Crissouli and Anne. I'm very excited about starting this blog.

  6. Welcome to the Blogisphere Georgie - you have certainly had a busy week. I'm now following you in my Rss and look forward to future posts from you.
