Beyond the Internet Week 1: Church interiors

Over at the Family History Across the Seas blog, Pauleen recently posted Beyond the Internet Week 1: Church interiors. I thought this was a great theme and asked Pauleen (@cassbmob) via Twitter if I could participate. She kindly replied 'By all means join in with the beyond Internet theme'. 

The topic for the first post was Church interiors. Pauleen asks:
Have you looked at your family’s churches to see if there are clues about your angels in the architecture? Stained glass windows, bells, donated items, plaques or kneelers might provide valuable clues.
Yes I have looked a some of the Churches my family attended, but I know there are a few more Churches I should look at. I have previously posted about how one of the Stations of the Cross in a local Church was donated by my Great Great Grandfather, Michael O'Brien.  

I have a collection of photographs from the interior of various Churches I have visited, including photographs of many stained glass windows showing the names of the donor or memorial.
After going through my collection I have decided to share my photographs from St Patrick's Catholic Church, Gundagai, New South Wales, Australia. I hope these will be useful for someone's family history.

  2. hi Aillin, thanks for posting on this theme. I think your photos show how personal histories can be found in church interiors but equally the environment in which our Catholic ancestors worshipped. Glad you asked to join in!
