Welcome to Gum Tree Genealogy Ring

The Home-base for Australian Genealogists

The Gum Tree Genealogy Ring was created in July of 1998 to give the growing number of Australian Genealogists, and those whose family links lay mostly in Australia, a starting point in their searching - a way to help each other in the never ending search for branches of their family trees.

WEBRING as we knew it has ceased to exist... like many other web entities, it has been taken over by YAHOO!

Despite several attempts to maintain the Gum Tree Webring through the new required methods, it is impossible for me to continue to maintain the ring as was previously done. You can still join the ring, if you wish, but please be warned, I can do NOTHING about any problems you might have with it. I will be leaving the ring online for approximately 1 month, from 10th September 2000, after which I will be taking it down, and Gum Tree Ring will cease to exist.

I wish to thank all of those who have taken part, who are members, and who have helped out with the ring in the past 2 years. My sincere apologies for the inconvenience, but it is beyond my control.

This new Yahoo! method of doing things requires each of you who has a page on any webring at all, to go to Yahoo!, get a Yahoo! ID and then associate your pages with the new Yahoo! controlled Webrings. I do not have time to do this for you, nor will I be attempting to do it.

Our motto:-

Bringing Genealogists together - Across Australia and the World

Without the input of the World, Australia would not be what it is today.

We trust that you will enjoy the new layout of Gum Tree's home site. If you have any problems with it, please contact me immediately.

Happy Hunting!!!
