A Tribute.

Today is the second blog-anniversary of my Blog.

A tribute.

I have called to mind the number of monuments that I have contributed to in order to honour my ancestors.

There have been two immigration walls:  one at Harvey Bay, Qld (not that my ancestors had a connection to the area but because it was one of the first such monuments where people could nominate their first arrival ancestors) and the other at the Immigration Museum in Flinders Street, Melbourne.  The names of Thomas Pye and Thomas and Jane Sinnott are now commemorated here.

The other monuments all relate to Captain Charles Pye.  His grave headstone, a commemorative stone at Kirkstall, Victoria and a plaque on the servicemen and womens’ clock tower in Stafford, England.

The memorials in Victoria came about by the work of other relatives, namely Mick, Bill and Francis.  The one in England, by the Mayor of Stafford and Beryl from the Baswich History Society.  My contribution was the background research and information that helped these tributes to happen.
