Welcome to the Harper Trew Family Tree. My family history journey began in earnest towards the end of 2011. I had toyed with the idea of family research back in the 90′s but most of the resources back then required that you travel to various registries, make phone calls and spend a considerable amount of time and money in general. With the advent of the Internet much more can be achieved in a smaller amount of time and with a lower cost – so here we are!

My research started on Ancestry.com and the starting point was my mother’s family. Her father was Robert John Harper (born in Ouyen) and her mother was Anne Catherine Trew (born in Warracknabeal). Ancestry.com is an excellent resource for researching but probably the only thing I don’t like is that the family tree is only available to members.

That is the main reason I have created this website – so that all of the information I have gathered from family members and several other people who have been very generous with their time and research is freely available. I hope you find something in here that saves you some time!
