Welcome, welcome one and all. You may have followed my other blogs Slowly Being Driven Mad by the Ancestors and the Steers One-Name Study blogs, but as neither of those has been updated since 2015 I’ve decided to close them and combine my efforts here and share tales of both families.

Follow my trials and tribulations, forays into the world of genetic genealogy, and help me with my brick walls (which are a misnomer; they’re not insurmountable, they’re just challenges we are yet to overcome).
