Welcome to the ever increasing and wide-spreading family tree of the Miller and O'Shea families in South Australia, their ancestors and associated families. This project will always be a work in progress. We are the product of those who went before, who paved the way for the lives, opportunities and experiences we have been privileged to have had. We are also history in the making for those yet to come.
I hope that not only will this journey be interesting, informative and increase the family knowledge and appreciation for the tapestry of our history, but also be a useful reference for our descendants and other more distant family members who are researching different branches of the family tree. I am learning so much, and am forever grateful to those kind strangers (at first) who guided me through the initial steps of this project.
A VERY BIG THANK YOU to so many people, both related and not, on both sides of the globe, who have provided information, allowed me to access their trees, or helped with lookups and other research, or enabled me to. Andy, Rick, Susan, Denise, Brett, Andrea, Graham R, Sharon, Brian W, Margaret K, Sue, Peter, Paul W, Ann N, to name but a few - thank you all very much! You all know who you are!
I would love to hear from anyone who has further information to add or corrections to make, especially anyone who has not only names, dates, places etc (though that would be good) but also stories and recollections of the people who are our common ancestors.(And yourselves - remember, we are the ancestors of the future generations. (Sounds weird doesn't it???)
Enjoy, and come back to visit as the site will continue to grow as quickly as i have the time to do it. You are welcome to sign my guest book before you leave the site, and contact me by email if you have any suggestions, additional, updated or corrected information, or just want to link up with family. Love, happy researching and good health to you all, Barb
