About me

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.  In 2017 we made the big decision to follow our dreams - so we quit our jobs, packed our stuff and moved interstate, to the Mid North Coast of New South Wales.

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 spent countless 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.
