My favourite hobby is genealogy. I have been hooked on this since about 1983. I have found a few cousins since I began "internetting" plus a lot of friendly people.

I have other hobbies too, bushwalking, reading, music, jig-saw puzzles and the garden when it's not too hot. And I've just taken up painting!

I live in Western Australia, just a few minutes (in the car) from some lovely beaches. Penguins, dolphins and seals right on the doorstep.

We have magnificent sunsets, watch the sun sink into the Indian Ocean, while the sky is a deep red/pink, and the clouds are tinged too. We also have some pretty good fishing.....

If any of these look familiar, please e-mail me. I am willing to share what information I have.

I have quite a lot of parish record microfiche covering Thanet, Kent, (St John's Margate, St Peter's Broadstairs, St Lawrence Ramsgate, St Mary Minster, Birchington) and would be willing to do lookups, given a reasonable timeframe. For a full list, check Kent Look-up Exchange in my list of links
