About Me

Hi and welcome to my genealogy blog.

I'm often accused of chattering randomly (or "wibbling") about my family history research so I've decided to write down these "wibbles" instead.

I am an ex-accountant, (currently on a career break to bring up my children but who know how long that will last??) with varied interests including genealogy.  I live in the south east of England but my family stems from Northern Ireland.

I have been interested in family history for a long time but have only really taken it more seriously since having a family of my own. I discovered that most of my husband's ancestors were from England which made it easier to research using the internet and at convenient times. Maybe one day I'll make it to a "proper" registry office or even across to PRONI in Belfast!

I have registered with the Guild of One Name Studies to look at the surname TILLIN and the variants TILLING and TILLEN.

I'm always on the look out for new blogs/sources of information that relate to the UK/Northern Ireland in particular but I also have connections in Scotland, USA, Canada and Gibraltar!

All comments/ideas gratefully received!
