I’ve always been interested in my family’s history and in 1999, whilst living in the Netherlands for a year, was able to start some serious research. As everyone knows it is a long and dedicated task to research one’s history. My job has been made much easier because I have come across other (some distant) relatives who are doing similar research. By exchanging information with these people and by doing my own research, my knowledge of my family has grown considerably.
I started my research focussing on my father’s branch of the family, the BREWER line, somewhere along the way I have managed to become sidetracked on the other branches of my tree. With lots of names and dates in my tree now, I hope to delve deeper into the lives of my ancestors and to be able to draw some picture of who they were and how they lived their lives.
Research back to the 1500’s and 1600’s shows 100% ancestry in the British Isles and Ireland. My website gives a summary of my grandparents families.
