Please note.
Journals are intended to assist new researchers locate family lines in Australia and should only be used as a guide for follow up research and record searches as intended. Due to spelling and informant errors appearing in the records, typo errors and my misreading of the records mistakes must be expected. Errors will be corrected when detected.

Greetings. Always great to hear from other "unknown" family members willing to assist with further details for our family records. It's only possible to go so far with record searches and certificates and any details supplied by family members is greatly appreciated.

In my attempt to keep the family records up to date I have been contacting family members in person to ask for their assistance. Happy to say many have taken an interest in the never ending project and are happy to assist me keep my records up to date with the latest births, deaths and marriages. And yes, there are some that will have nothing to do with me ... because their family tree compiled fifty or so years ago tell a different story. There are some things people will not accept, but that's another story.

Now back to your reply. I have Vera and Hector on my batabase, including their three children, but I'm missing a few event dates and it would be appreciated if you can assist me confirm and bring my records up to date.

Please check your PM mail box for my contact details.
