Hello, it’s Lil here, Jude’s daughter.

Are you interested in family history?

I’m a qualified genealogist and family historian who is passionate about connecting the past to the present through the lens of family history.

On my website/blog, familyfolkandhistory.com I share posts with research tips and tricks to help you on your family history journey, anything from how to purchase reliable history books to a tutorial on keeping research logs, along with articles about people, places and events from past.


Dedicated to open and transparent sharing of where I source information, I always include references at the end of each article if you would like to research the topic further.

Although based in Australia, as a professional historian I have access to a worldwide range of records  and specialise in (but not limited to):

Australian history:

~ Immigration.

~ Convict history.

~ The Australian WWI experience.

Scottish History (14th – 19th Century):

~ Immigration.

~ Jacobitism.

~ The Wars of Independence.

I became a genealogist and family historian because I feel it is so important to honour those who have come before us. Remembering our ancestors is one of the greatest gifts we can give both them and ourselves.
