Have you got weavers from Perth?
This might seen a rather niche question, and it is, but if you have people from Perth then this website might well be a treasure trove of information for you. You can use the big genealogy websites such as Ancestry and Find My Past to build your family history, but to really get to know those ancestors you will want to use some of the millions of smaller websites to fill in the gaps in your knowledge.
So …. this is an essential site for you if you have folk from Perth. It is easy to use, always a bonus! Simply click on one of the headings on the left hand side of the front entry page and work your way through the page, some pages are fairly long and you could use your browsers “Find” tool to shorten your search, but I think it is well worth while taking the time to read those pages. There is a lot of be said for making haste slowly with genealogy, it isn’t a race and there are no prizes for the person with the largest number of ancestors on their family tree!
