Thanks to Brett Wanless whose innocent question over a beer one night kicked this whole thing off. Obviously, I am also greatly indebted to all of my genealogical sources.
Finally made the leap to WordPress and a bunch of useful stuff that just seems to come up with the cornflakes.
The site masthead is based on a portion of the original family tree chart by William Squire Dann and a photograph provided by Keith Hutcheson Hurwood which shows the family of William Squire Hurwood Snr in the front yard of “Baldersby”, Mark St, New Farm, Queensland circa 1908.
The quote shown on the home page is from Plutarch’s “Of the Training of Children”, from Dryden’s translation of Plutarch’s Lives, corrected and revised by A. H. Clough.
To my mum, thanks for holding together a huge amount of information (both paper sources and in her head) about the recent history of some dozen families and passing it all on to me.
