Do you know when Benedictus Coombe arrived in Australia and what ship also. He sent for his wife and family later on. I'm helping a friend her father comes off his branch.She can't find him arriving in Australia.regards Bev.

Looking for Benedictus Coombe did you get your information from certificates or some other sources. My friend would like to know.If you could just say yes or no.I've asked her to join family tree circle when she can get the time she will.thank you regards bev.

1. Other sources. A book prepared for the 100 th. gathering in SA. Plus data provided by UK rels. and Australian records.
2. I cannot afford the cost of the shipping disks (Pensioner)so not privy to that data as yet. The state libraries do provide access but the nearest to me is 100 miles away.
3. Tree posted at http://www.genesreunited.com/
Free membership.
4.http://www.combs-families.org/combs/index.html is a USA based group researching Coombe and other variations world wide. Well worth a visit.
5. Had DNA done on oldest Coombe living in OZ in our family. No links with USA branch but prehistory of DNA shows link to Norway
