Would be happy to join this group. My British roots include my maternal grandmother and Gt. Grandmother who were from Blyth in Northumberland, maternal gt.gt. grandmother who was from Kent, another maternal gt.gt. grandmother who was from Peterborough in Northants and paternal Gt. grandparents who were from Queensbury, WRY - one of whom was Hannah Holdsworth nee Smith, hence my interest in this website. I have a lot of interest in my British heritage and love touring the UK ,seeing where they were born and learning more about their lifestyle. Look forward to hearing more about the group.

| Hi Janice,|
Thank you for this information................
please feel free to post as much as you like, Janice, about your own emigrant Brit ancestors, and anything else you would like to share will be most valued. Hopefully more Australians and maybe New Zealanders will join us in the future.
