Hello! I'm Lil, 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 Romani.
At the moment my main interest lies in researching the Scottish lines of my family, I have successfully traced my family tree from the Jacobites at the Battle of Culloden in a direct line dating back to King Robert the Bruce.
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.
