This website was started by me when my wife Teresa encouraged me to research her family history hence the name "the Thorne Family". It has , of course, now grown hugely. As many of the people on this site are of indigenous ancestry, and thus their details not well documented, there are gaps in the story. If you have any information to add, or mistakes to correct, please get in touch with me.
I am especially interested in details about people's lives and getting a feel for what their lives were like.
