BBQ photos – preparing for our family group photo

During the BBQ,  family members gradually meandered out to the BBQ area of the Port Melbourne Bowling Club in preparation for a large family group photo.  Here are some of those early ‘arriving’ photos.

Bringing together approximately 76 people was always going to be a slow but a happily relaxed process as these photos show- despite the careful directions of one family member.












BBQ photos – eighth lot

The number of photos left to add to this blog from our Sunday family get together, is diminishing. Only a few more days and a few more collections of photos to be shown.  Do you have any photos which you would be happy to share?  If so, please email them to me at and I will show them on this blog.  If you do not want me to name you as the photographer, please let me know.

The photos below show some very special people: some

  • are responsible for collecting and researching Australian Tyzack family history,
  • are related to the process of ensuring our anniversary events took place,
  • took photographs during the weekend of family members,
  • provide an example of people who came from distant parts of Australia such as Darwin to attend the anniversary events,
  • are the oldest living descendants of William Baker Tyzack who landed in Australia with his family 150 years ago in 1866,
  • are the latest recipients and therefore the new caretakers of the Family Bible originally given as a wedding gift
    to our ancestor William Baker Tyzack in 1852
  • are supportive and close family members within this cluster of family
