Coronavirus 2020

The advent of the corona virus has stirred me to further action. I am updating the records of myself and immediate family members. There are more stories also. If any family member is feeling a bit vunerable like myself, register and update your bit. If you need a record of whats here or the more extensive one on Myheritage, contact and I will email them to you. All of my domains are located on USA servers. I am a bit concerned about this, so today I have started a new server contract with an australian one in Sydney and will copy this site and others to that server. Hopefully all 3 won’t go down.

There are 2 free family genealogy programs available, Ancestris and Grampus. There are lots of ones for sale/hire. They will all read the GED files I can provide.

The virus is not effecting us here in Burnett Heads apart from the social distancing measures. Our fuel prices have dropped to $1.02 per litre for unleaded. All food is available, but paper products are in short supply. The local distillery is converting its rum alcohol over to hand sanitizer, so look out for Bundaberg Hand Rumatizer in your local supermarket.

Website Updates

I have started adding extra details to for Albert Truelove and George William Mclaren. The search engine at My Heritage appears to have run out of any further details of immediate family members, so the actual family tree is stabilising. I am still updating the Illabo part of the Truelove family as I have found some old information supplied by Nick Truelove in 2004. Have had contact with John Schubert’s website and discovered the original ancestory research there had more Mclaren relatives than previously found. George Mclaren, George William’s father was married twice so George William had step brothers and sisters in Scotland. In I have restored some of the original graphics.

Charles St George Truelove (broadbent family)

I cannot remember why I called this part of the family Broadbent. However, there is now a family tree, very sparse. I have registered the family with MyHeritage put there is nothing coming up for Charle’s birth and family in England as yet. There are two additional stories for Charles in Melbourne.

new update for

I have uploaded the latest GEDCOM to this website. There are over 2000 names listed, about 250 Trueloves. A lot of duplicate records have been created by merging the old and new files. There is probably a better way, but this keeps the photos attached to the record. I will now attempt to add more photos to this family tree. Here is the link http://truelove-fami … er&ged=truelove-tree
Sounded good, however, I have now found the file uploaded is corrupt. Found it is only loading 6 children for Elizabeth Emily Truelove not the 8 as listed. So we have 8 children in the original file from This loads okay to but only loads 6 children to Have not checked any other entries as yet

Speerin Family

I had a long talk to my brother Bruce today. The following is a news entry in the Speerin Family Tree. It explains why the Speerins are with us.
The Speerin Family

The Speerin Family are included in this website as Nellie Speerin was my natural grandmother. My father Albert Truelove was born to Nellie Speerin in Newtown on 19th September, 1909. My Paternal grandmother adopted “bertie” immediately and he was raised as her son. my father did not know he was adopted until prior to his marriage to mum when a birth certificate was required. Grand mother Truelove provided the original adaption paper to mum for the marriage. A Speerin Family tree is now available. http://www.australia … type=gedcom&ged=tree
