Robyn Arkinstall's Genealogy Page
I first met Robyn through my interest in a distant relative - Phyllis M. Tagget, we each share. The progress that I managed to achieve throughout Australia would not have been possible without receiving her advice gained through more than 30 years of research while building her Family Tree's.

The Burnell Family
There are records of the name 'Burnell' which date back to the year 1066 in England. The Magna Carta showed a list of names of knights who came to Britain from Normandy with William I in 1066 - to whom he gave manor houses and lands, and in that list of names, was one called "BURNELL".

INTERESTING READING

 

Bendigo Goldfields Petition
The 1853 Bendigo Goldfields Petition is 13 metres in length and bound in green silk. Drawn up in mid-1853, the petition was signed by over 5000 diggers on the Victorian goldfields who were angry about the mining license fees imposed by the government and the system by which they were collected. Henry Tagget signed the petition.

Mining Accidents in Victoria
This sample of Dave's Victorian Index includes 5600 miners who were killed or injured from the early 1850's to the 1940's. Although I did not find anyone here who is included in the Family Tree, it is an interesting side to view. It certainly makes one appreciate that mining was a dangerous occupation to say the least.

Dame Enid Lyons
This is a very nice article by Caroline Chisholm.
