Christening 8mm Film

Here is a copy of an 8mm film made of my Christening - copied on to video about 15 years ago and transferred from that video to here.

It's only brief but there are lots of family members on it. It may be the oldest footage in existence of many of us. If you know of any other old film of the family please let me know.

Click here to download the video (mpg)

I can send a DVD to you if you would like a higher quality copy. Just email me at .

Here are some old photos from Mum's collection that I scanned.
I have heaps more, but it takes a while to do!
I will do the others gradually and put them up.
I have Mum's side and Dad's side this lot are from Mum's side - next batch will be from Dad's side.

I find the ones of Mum fascinating. In some of them she looks just like Michelle. In one she looks just like Claire (I've noted which ones). And some I initially thought couldn't be her because she looks so different in those to the others.
