My name is David Barron and I live near Brisbane in Queensland, Australia with my wife and three children. I am very interested in tracing my family tree and would appreciate any information, suggestions or help on family tree or websites. If I can assist you in any way with information please contact me.
I have started this blog as a way to quickly make notes showing what I am updating and what I am researching at the moment in my genealogy sites.
Daves Genealogy Web (dgenweb)
This is the start of what I would like to be a genealogy based website where people can swap information and help others with their research. I am hoping to use this blog as an update page for a website incorporating pages with information, valuable links and contacts and also have some forums ( some being fairly generic whilst others being of a more specific family orientation)

Brother in-law has just given me a copy of his grandfathers birth certificate. Already have leads on the family.

Date & place of birth - 23 Aug 1909 Moneystaghan Father - James Henry from Glenore, Labourer Mother - Annie Henry (formerly Henry?)
James married Rosina Ellen Downey in Brisbane Australia in 1937.
James Married Annie on 4th June 1909, James, Annie and 1yo James appear to have come to Australia 12 June 1911 on the Fifeshire. In the 1911 census (2nd April) it shows the family living with Annie's sister Rose Henry.

Now the costly part of the exercise starts, records from Ireland do not come cheap.
