Joyce Timms is a grand-daughter of Albert Woodman. Joyce’s mother, Thelma, was Albert and Nellie’s second child and only daughter.
Albert’s daughter, Thelma, found his diaries while clearing out their family home in Glasnevin. In turn, her daughter Joyce kept them when clearing out her own parents’ house some years later. Joyce lent them to a Remembrance Day exhibition in her local parish, and through that, became aware that they might be of interest to more than just Albert’s descendants.
