Family Tree Day On Australia Day

My Mum organised a Family Tree day, with our Buring relatives, which coincided with Australia Day.  I printed out a big family tree chart for those who were present and I had my laptop with the whole tree on it handy for answering questions and displaying info and pictures!

My Aunty Jenny had albums full of photos and documents I hadn’t seen, they are a treasure trove which I will revisit and scan.  Amazing!!!

She also has this family member’s wedding veil but isn’t sure whose it was, it’s very old.

My Grandma had the family crest made into a hook rug kit which she made into this great wall hanging.
As I’ve written previously I haven’t been able to find out anything about the Burings before they came to South Australia.  However one of the precious pieces of information I received this day was that it’s believed that the Burings came from Unter Den Linden in Berlin.  Unter Den Linden is a boulevard in the Mitte district of Berlin.  So I don’t know if this means they lived on the street or in the area but it will narrow down my search for records a bit.
We had such a good day that we want to repeat it next year!!

    More people in my family are getting interested. They don't want to do the research but they like to hear about and see the results!

      Hi Cindy
      No unfortunately I don’t make family crests and I don’t know of anywhere you can get them made either. Thanks for reading my blog.
      Kind regards, Kylie πŸ™‚
