Hello I live in Australia and have started my family tree. Have found my English families came from Bedlington and they were miners. The Chapmans who came here also were miners in Wollongong NSW. These are all things I am learning now as I have no relatives alive. I want to put as much together as I can for my children to see how their ancestors lived and worked. I found this site. Thought I would join in, but I have to admit not to being very apt at forums. Just wanted to say hello and look forward to checking out the site.
