Tapping the Family Roots
Grant Fairley’s Family History
Grant is one who was “bitten by the family history bug” and who enjoys seeing glimpses of relatives from the past. His story includes collections of ancestors who were miners, bakers, farmers, weavers, tea salesmen and others who lived out their days with the same challenges of life and family in their time that are not really much different today. Some of Grant’s relatives have links here. All of them also have an entry on Wikipedia.
