My name is Liliana, and I'm passionate about family history.
My father's side of the family is Dutch and my mother's side is a wonderful mixture of Scottish, Irish, Cornish and Welsh Romany.
I started genealogy many years ago in an attempt to find out more about the Scottish side of my mother's family. Fast forward to now and I am a qualified genealogist with a Diploma of Family History from the University of Tasmania and aim to start a genealogy business in the near future. The main reason I became a genealogist is because I feel it is so important to honour those who have come before us. Many of their stories have been forgotten over the ages, and it is my belief that making sure our ancestors are remembered is one of the greatest gifts we can give both them and ourselves.
Living in Australia I am surrounded by many wonderfully diverse family trees, all with their own unique histories and traditions, and I hope that the information I share here will help you discover the many amazing stories I'm sure your family tree has to offer.
