I can't let this month pass without mentioning two March anniversaries.
Five years ago, 8 March 2008, the Corbin Family Gathering was held in Canberra. Ruth organised it and about 100 Corbins attended, a great success.
Two years ago, 22 March 2011, Ruth van Aaken passed away suddenly. She was creator of the original family website Australian Corbin Trees, organiser of the Gathering in 2008, and family historian par excellence.
