STORY COUNT 5th May 2012 - 32

I am Sarah Ann Paterson, daughter of Margaret Ann Green and Stanley John Paterson.  The majority of stories will relate to the Greens and the Patersons.
  Other families are Gardner, Knibbs, & Brain. 

To protect my living relatives online, the relationship of the person in the story to their living relative should not be identifiable from the story.   No stories are of living relatives or mention living relatives.  I do not update the main content of the site very often so to find out if I have further or updated info on that person, check the blog too.

The stories take many formats depending upon all of the research found or in many cases not found.  The majority of my ancestors were agricultural labourers, domestic servants or coal miners.  A few were born in the workhouse and lots died in them.  However, in amongst the dust are some real gems.  The interesting gems are usually the most frustrating to prove and often end up as dead ends.  Here lies the ulterior motive for this site.  If you can answer any of my questions in these stories - please contact me!

However a lot of people are in the stories that aren't listed above so it is probably easier to enter the name into the search button in the top right corner.  The search button is also very useful for searching places, occupations, etc.  Or for the genealogy behind the stories as @ 03/05/14:-
