Alison Kilpatrick is an amateur genealogist with a keen interest in local history and historic newspapers. Arborealis was created to present family and local history studies pertaining to Alison’s research interests. These interests range from England, Ireland, Wales, and Scotland as countries of origin—to places where our ancestors migrated within Britain and Ireland, or settled in Australia, Canada, India, New Zealand, the island of Saint Helena, Scotland, and the United States.

Current projects:—For several months wrapping around the New Year 2021, the main activity will comprise the reconstruction of Arborealis with materials published previously from 1999 to early 2020.
