This blog is my memorial to my parents, Hannah Olive O'Dea and Edward John Horgan, their ancestors and many relatives who have wandered this earth in earlier years.
It will include postings about my husband's ancestors too, those of his parents John Dominic Galvin and Phyllis Yvonne Stirling.
This is my way of sharing stories and things I found regarding those ancestors: newspaper articles, pictures, obituaries, tombstones and other records. The information and opinions expressed here may contain some inaccuracies.
I have retired from many years of paid work as a teacher and librarian and now enjoy extra leisure time with my husband. As well as reading, sewing and researching folks of interest related to me from the early days of South Australia, I enjoy supporting my local library and historical and genealogical society.
My other blog at Carmel's Corner (previously Library Currants) covers my general, reading and computer interests.
