Somewhere, online, to put out there all the family research that has been sitting around on scraps of paper, just waiting to be put together. Information about my family history and Alister's. Various family names - Nidd, Transom, Todd, Latto, Calder, Bertram, Sutherland, Maher, Purvis... and the list goes on. Hoping to share information with fellow genealogical enthusiasts.

ANZAC Day post - Alex Latto 1897 - 1 November 1917
John Alexander Anderson Latto was the fourth child and third son of my Great Great Grandfather David Latto and his second wife, Annie Valentine Latto. Accordingly, he was an uncle to my grandfather Pat Nidd. Alex Latto was born in 1897, in Australia, served with the 110th Battalion in the Australian Infantry in WWI and was killed in action at Passchendaele, Belgium on 1 November 1917, aged just 20.
