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!!
