Take a squiz at what I’m researching

Have you ever had the experience of being totally focused on a research task for one part of your tree – when suddenly another part of your tree robs your attention?!

Here I was, working away diligently at the task of cleaning up narrative sentences for my Bennett family. I was focused, I was determined. I was going to get the job done!


A cousin shared a book she had found with my Allsop descendants group on Facebook: Khaki Crims and Desperadoes.

It turns out that my 1st cousin three times removed, Charles Edward Allsop, was pals with the notorious gangster, Squizzy Taylor.

If Trove has noticed an increase in hits over the last day or two, it’s probably due to us Allsop descendants!
