Janice was brought up in Fairfield and is one of nine siblings (3 girls, 6 boys). Janice's family moved to Rosanna in the early seventies and she an auntie to 20 nephews and nieces and great aunt to 14.
Janice and her family have started doing the Family Tree and have gone back four generations. Janice says it is great to be able to put it on the computer and they have also found a lot of information going back to mid 1700s and when they get any new information it is easy to update. The three girls visited their mother's birth place in Gunning NSW which was a great and emotional visit as they haven't had any visits before this trip. They found four headstones and information relating to some of their ancestors.
Janice has been involved with 96.5 Inner FM for the last two years in the role of volunteer Monday mornings and minute secretary for the monthly committee meeting. Previously she worked for Telstra for 30 years in various roles mainly in the administration areas. More recently she have been working as a volunteer at the Rosanna Fire Station Community House, Watsonia Library, Mental Illness Fellowship Op Shop and also at Inner FM.
Janice says she has met a lot of interesting and lovely people whilst working at the radio station.
