Generations

I have finalised, as of now, the archival record that connects me with my great, great grandfather, Samuel Ford.  The publication, Generations is now available for download.

This is the second of a series of books which I intend to publish through the internet as open source material.

Again the proviso is that the material is used for educational or family history purposes only and that it is not used for any commercial purpose.

I would also caution those who would like to add the material to one of the popular commercial ancestry websites.  I have not provided the material of my own research to such sites.

Ballarat & the Eureka Stockade

Ballarat is renowned for the events of 1854 which became the Eureka Stockade.  Because James Ford moved from Otago in New Zealand to Ballarat it perhaps opportune to make some notes about this important even in Ballarat’s and Australia’s history.  I have therefore added a page devoted to this subject which can be found here.

Comments and feedback are welcome.

Revision time

I am re-writing the life of James Ford; Island Footprints.

In The Story Behind the Story of Samuel Ford I have outlined my reasons for thinking James’ father, Samuel Ford came to Millport courtesy of the revenue cutter the Royal George.  Others may disagree and are free to reach their own conclusions about such matters.

 

Stop Press

Lots of interested generated recently led me to rearrange the page order.

 

I have also made the leap and register a ‘real’ website please note the new address .. https://followingthefootprintsofjamesford.com

Enjoy.
