    In these gender neutral times are we allowed to question whether Martha is really Matthew?

    Sorry it just jumped in my mind when I read about the census error.

    As we have gained from the past, we owe the future a debt, which we pay by sharing today.

    We are always allowed to question things, it’s healthy that we do, but rest assured that Martha or Matthew fathered numerous children and I wouldn’t be here today if it wasn’t for Matthew/Martha ��

    I have given my blog website a little bit of love and care as it looked a little bare. I was happy with the content of the blogs, but not how it was presented on the website. Anyway hope you like it, appreciate any feedback both positive and negative, thanks

    I have continued with the mammoth task of writing up the life stories of my 2 x Great Grandparents, its taking a long time to piece together the info, as we all know the further back we go the harder it is to find the records.

    I hope you enjoy them.

    The first one you can learn a bit about the Cement Industry and even see the Church that I was Baptised in!
