About Quirky Characters
Family Historian & Storyteller
My name is Julie Poulter and I am a family historian and storyteller. I have spent the past thirty years researching my family tree and piecing together the lives of the fascinating characters who are my forebears. From this experience, I believe everyone has a unique and wonderful story to tell about their lives.
I come from a country background; born and bred in Dubbo in central west NSW. Since my late teens I have lived in Sydney, London, Bathurst and now Albury. I have met and worked with some amazing characters over the years and in jobs that have given me the opportunity to meet people who had fascinating stories to tell. However, the inspiration for creating this business has really been from the influence of my late grandmothers, Irene and Connie. Both had wonderful memories of their younger lives and of their family histories and I would sit for hours with them recording their stories on tape and on scraps of paper. Their stories never failed to fascinate me!
