Sarah-Jane Waller

Researching ‘Waller’ and the ‘ De Valer’s’ and where they originated from. What they did and why some of us are now ordinary everyday working class parts of this family. What did they do to lose Money, peerages, mansions, and castles?  Waller who?

Researching St.John Family in the UK, where it started from. Questions asked:- Where do the St.Johns come from? Was It Normandy? Is the St.john name originally ‘Senssion’ from Normandy? Does the Uk St.John family link with the USA family? Are all St.Johns from one family line descent? Is there a peerage line? ‘St.John’ has a lot of variants what are they and where do they come from?

Family Genealogist, Personal.  I am also an artist, craft, embroiderer and crocheter.  I earned my BA Degree in Illustraion in 2003 and in 2004  my MA in Digital Media.  I enjoy researching a project and when I get a lead I can not leave it alone. I like to share my findings and I have found this site through a lady who is writing about the St.John family.

Now my son is all grown up and a family of his own I can result to things I have wanted to do for many years. Researching is something I so enjoy. I love to find out about facts and put things together and solve a problem.  I hope my research can help others as many other peoples research has helped me.
