Bloodline- sowing seeds in a strange land

My ancestral bloodline is convoluted. It is scattered across many countries in Europe from Latvia in the northwest to Slovakia and Yugoslavia in the east. There is even a French solider from Napoleon’s army in the mix. Many left their land of birth, settled in new lands and through marriage established a new identity, heritage and family.

I owe my Australian homeland to the strength and tenacity of my Latvian born mother and Czechoslovakian born father who met and married in Australia.
