I am writing to register an unknown family line to this family. Much to my excitement at having found my family linage, and surely to the surprise of this other family, I can declare the fact of my fathers existence.
My father was born out of wedlock and in secret, in 1920 to Violet Louisa Harkness.
Her D.O.B: 23 January 1898 in Melbourne, Australia. She died in Hastings, New Zealand on 9 November 1974.
Violets father was William E Harkness born 1868 and mother Alice Murray, born 1870.
William E's father was William Armstrong Harkness born 16.3.1834 and mother was Elizabeth Cronin.

Violet was one of 3 sisters, - they had a young brother who died early, and records show the 3 ladies never had children. Except that I do exist!!

I would very much like to correspond with someone, to hand over details to qualify my fathers birth into this family. And subsequently mine and others.
I hope to hear from someone.
Rhonda
