Genealogy of the Fanning Family from Thurles Co Tipperary Ireland
Glass Family of Yackandandah Victoria Australia
The Glass family lived in Yackandandah Victoria Australia. They originated from Bratton in Wiltshire England. My grandmother’s sister Eileen Mackey married Joseph Glass. There are many Glass family members buried in Yackandandah cemetery.
Eileen Mackey married Joseph Glass in Melbourne on 20 November 1919. Eileen called “Sis” was my grandmother’s sister.
When my father was growing up he had a lot to do with his cousins, Joe and Bernard, sons of Eileen and Joe, even though they lived in country Victoria at Yackandandah. Because of his fondness for his cousins I have included old photos that we found in a biscuit box and information I have gathered on the Glass family in my Fanning research.
While I am not a direct Glass descendant I hope these photos and the report may be of interest to those who are directly related to the Glass family. I would love to know who the other people are in the above wedding photo.
I have done an Ancestry DNA test and also have uploaded my test results to GedMatch. My GedMatch kit numbers are A029138 and T470174. Please contact me if we are a match.
