Greetings from Newcastle, Australia
Boddy Lines has
evolved over many years, having started in 2002 or thereabouts as a
mainly family history site for Mary's genealogy interests. In time,
Boddy Lines grew to be used as a family record - photographic and
otherwise- of many of our trips away from home, plus other bits and
pieces Mary thinks might be of interest to a wider audience.
About our Family History pages:
summaries of the arrival in Australia of the Boddy and Davidson families, the
pages on David's side of the family,
The Boddy Line and the
Davidsons of New England
are family ancestors' trees only. Mary's ancestor story in the Byrnes/Gaffey pages is told more
fully in the Family History link to
A Tale of Soldiers, Settlers & Convicts.
But of course, there's more to be found....
Plus, there's a section of "bits and pieces",
including some contributions from friends, which don't readily find
a spot elsewhere on the site, so we've slotted them there under the
heading of "Other Good Stuff". This section will probably grow
Now that you've navigated your way here,
we hope you find something of interest - and any comments (via
email) are most welcome.
