I always feel the thrill of the chase, when I do some family research for someone.
This time is has been on the surnames of JUNIPER and GUTEKUNST.
The Gutekunst name is German and the family came to Australia (Adelaide) from Nagold Germany.
Such a wealth of stories that are waiting to be told, when you start locating not just names and dates of births, deaths and marriages, but photos and also details on the National Archives site.
I usually hand over to my friends what I have found on my initial searches, and then hope that they become addicted like I have with the research bug.
