 BRANCHES OF THE FAMILY TREE

Canada and Girgarre Connected 

     Anyone who has begun the search for their family’s roots will tell you it’s a fascinating and absorbing exercise and once started, hooks you in. But, these days modern technology is of huge assistance, it connects us to the rest of the world in a way unknown to earlier generations.

That link led him to contact Rob, a member of the Girgarre RSL. Rob turned out to be a kindred spirit able to offer a lot of the information Jim was seeking. The result of their ongoing correspondence over the past year is an enduring friendship even though they live on opposite sides of a world, currently separated by the pandemic.
