How’s the week going so far, guys?

We’re excited here on The Goss today as my dad Ian Smissen announces one of his life achievements — publishing his book ‘Becoming Australian’!

This book idea of his started in early 2020. He’d been working on it bit by bit and when we hit lockdown, he decided to give it a full go.

And voila, the Smissen Family History!

It’s a large collection of photographs of the family, and important places, and of course, our family tree.

Yeah, it won’t be up for sale for the public — it’s got stories there that Dad would rather keep within its limited readers.

And he says it’s been tedious doing the editing work, and fun trying to trace the family ties – how we ‘became Australian’.

Would you try to trace your family tree, too? Let me know in the comments below!
