Hi, I started this site in 2005 as a way of getting to know a little more about my family history. I would love to get an individual photograph of everyone in my family tree. If you do not have a picture posted on this site already, can you please send me one? (If you have a more recent photo or would simply like to swap the photo with a better one let me know - I'd be happy to oblige). Im always on the look out for group photos (wedding groups, birthdays etc) so if you have any please send me a copy. Also, if anyone has any information regarding the people in my family tree, I would love to be hear from you. Im thinking of starting a mailing list, drop me a line with email details if you want to join the mailing list. ***Can you help me identify the unknown people in the Unknown Boyd Takle or Winsor photos section? *** More Unknown Boyds here You will need a Picassa/Google account to update the comments Recent Updates: May 2019 Alfred James Takle, injured at the Battle of the Somme May 2019 Discovered Sidney Takle died in Japanese Prisoner of War camp January 2019 Gillian Carnegie.
