Family Trees and Reunions…love them or hate them?

October 22, 2014

I LOVE them!! I come from a really great family—no true, I really do. So I love family get togethers and family history. This is also where my love of history in general comes from - I done a number of books now for schools and families and I totally get sucked into the content and the photos.


In early October the O'Connell family had a massive 'Camp Cousins' family reunion at a perfect venue on the Darling Downs - Adora Downs, Mt Tyson. It's a rustic farmstay of sorts, and formed the best backdrop for the weekend-long party.


So what's involved in pulling together a big reunion? LOTS, but the fun part is producing all the accompanying collateral - a bit like a wedding really:


  • family trees x 6

  • name tags x 60 odd

  • menus

  • itinerary

  • invitations

  • flyers


Here's one of the family trees that was on display and the name tag 'legend' to help everyone determine who were direct descendents and who were 'outlaws'!! ;)


Can't pick your family, but I wouldn't have it any other way!
