Registration No. 9940/1907 Groom's name: STEVENS, ARTHUR E Bride's name: HART, SARAH J District: BALLINA.

His parents names were possibly Edward Place (or Peace) STEVENS and Susannah Rebecca EVVY or EZZY who were married in 1876 at Wellingrove NSW. There is a birth record for an Arthur E. STEVENS in 1886 at Glen Innes. You won't know it's the same family until you purchase certs.

If it is the same family, there were other children:

(Births)
*Emily Place STEVENS born 1880 Wellingrove NSW
Mary Eliza STEVENS born 1882 Glen Innes NSW
...Arthur E. STEVENS born 1886 Glen Innes NSW...
Louisa V. STEVENS born 1889 Glen Innes NSW
(Deaths)
Frank C. STEVENS died 1878 Inverell NSW
*Emily Place STEVENS died 1950 North Sydney NSW

Tip: With a common and popular surname like 'STEVENS' it is advisable to be careful not to research the wrong STEVENS family. Make sure you obtain as many bdm certs as you can. Ask/check with family members first before splashing the cash.

Please be aware that there are a couple of Stevens families around this area who are not related. I have researched the Stevens/Shufflebottom line and have not found an Arthur Edward or the parents listed above. The Stevens mob buried at Pally are almost all my line.

hi there jamboree i am finding it very hard to know if i am on the right track past relatives of the stevens clan say we are of the stevens/shufflebottom line i really would love to know where we fit in regards yvonne haley.

by jamboree on 2008-11-01 20:32:38

Hi Yvonne

My mother was born at Biniguy and grew up there - her mother was a Stevens. I don't have an Arthur E in my line at all (that's not to say that he doesn't fit in). do you know who your grandparents were and I will see if there is a connection. If you have lived in Pally for 40 years then you would have known Pat Stevens. He did do some work on the family tree with some others but the information was inaccurate in many places. If you were related to Pat, then you are related to me as Pat was the brother of my grandmother Gertie.
Regards
Jan

hi jan all i was ever told when i was comming to pally was that my fathers first cousins lived out here they were lizzy austin /nee stevens and fred stevens her brother and alec stevens and yes i knew pat stevens well he nearly reared my husband graham haley graham was always over there he used to take him to all the auction sales another relation was kath macey she told me her father william stevens was a cousin of pops i think pops parents were edward stevens and susane ezzy not sure on that i am in the midddle of finding that out i will let you know when i receive any news i think you would know geoffe macey as well was,nt his mother gertie,s sister thelma another great lady.by for know regards yvonne haley.

by jamboree on 2008-11-22 00:48:22

If Lizzie was Elizabeth, who married Charles Austin then she is part of my Stevens family. Alex married Ruby Austin - Fred I don't have in the line but it could be a nick name. Kath Macey and I share a common ancestor in William Alfred Shufflebottom (Stevens). Kath and Pat worked on the family history with some others in the 1980's and there were a lot of errors in it. My grandmother was Gertie Stevens who married Gwydir Maidens (Guy) and lived at Biniguy almost all their lives.

hi there june my husband said to say hello graham haley i have just found my great grandparents it is not edward place it is stephen stevens and he was married to ellen have not got her maiden name as yet i have sent for pops death certificate arthur edward stevens and i shall keep you informed merry christmas yvonne haley.

by jamboree on 2008-12-12 13:36:48

Hi Yvonne - you are definitely part of the same line then. Stephen Stevens does not appear to have ever married Ellen (at least no record has been found in NSW or Qld). Ellen's maiden name appears to have been Moore and she was born abt 1849. She was married to Robert Bevan Jones in 1863 at Inverell. There is a Robert Bevan Jones listed as a school teacher at Ashford in 1872 which might be the same person. Her last child to Jones was in 1873, I have not yet found a death record for him but Ellen pops up with Stephen in 1875. The first few kids were registered under the surname Moore including Arthur Edward in 1877 if my information is correct. Other children were Steve b 1885, Andrew b 1879, Mabel 1884, Harry J 1886,then Ruby b 1890 and Ivy b 1893. Stephen is only listed on one birth certificate and that is Ivy's. Ivy is also listed as on the BDM index with the surname of Stevens so it appears that somewhere along the line there was a revision of information on her birth certificate. Stephen Stevens died 1918 and was buried in the R/C part of the cemetery in Inverell but I've not been able to find a death or burial for Ellen!!!

This is an unusual line and I'm glad finally to have found someone from this line.

hi Jan thank you so much what a mix up i have sent for my grandfathers death certificate only yesterday it will be interesting to see his parents name on it i will have to show Nola kite this she will have a good laugh i saw her the other day and i told her i had been in touch with you i do have a photo of my grandfathers wedding photo he married Sarah Jane hart i am so excited to think i do fit in i shall have to tell you one day how i come to be raised in Melbourne well shall catch you later merry christmas from all the pally lot sorry about my typing skills.

by jamboree on 2008-12-12 21:01:25

Hi Yvonne

Did you order the death certificate through BDM's or did you get a transcript from one of the transcription agencies. The transcripts are a lot cheaper and contain the same information - the only difference is that you can't use them for legal reason. They are fine for family history though and cost $14-16 rather than $26. I have additional information listed below:

Hi Yvonne, I'm not Jan but thought I'd pop this in for you and Jan to see and comment on --- I hope ths is correct. My mother was adopted by Bert and Evelyn Irwin and I was working back from them, when I came across Jan a couple of years ago. I'm now in contact with a few others on this tree and have passed on the website so hopefully they'll join in as well.

Hi Glynn thank you so much boy there are so many of them at least i know i am one of them at last i was told by a few of them that no way was i the same clan as the shufflebottom lot because Arthur Stevens who belongs to stephen Stevens and Ellen Moore were not married and he was registered in her name but he married as a Stevens and died as a Stevens don,t know when he changed his name i will cherish this information regards Yvonne Haley/Stevens.

by Glynne on 2009-04-02 01:09:56

Hi Yvonne, I'm beginning to wonder whether I'm legitimately connected to any family branch I'm looking at --- certainly the branches all seem to have breaks in them at different points. But it is the family you are brought up in that is important ---- This family is my mother's adoptive one as she was given away at the age of 10 days. I've been in contact with others on this line in recent days. You may be interested in googling for 'Ship Morley' which is the ship James John Shufflebottom was transported in. I found a lovely picture of the Morley (and the Sesotris) on one site, and the diary written by Felton Mathews, the surveyor, who travelled out at the same time as JJS.

by Glynne on 2009-04-03 03:56:25

Can someone please clarify that the family outlined in the first instance here (ie Arthur E Stevens being born to Edward P Stevens and Susannah Rebecca Evvy/Ezzy) is NOT the same family as the Shufflebottom ----> Stevens line. I do wish all these families didn't name their children with the same names --- didn't they realise how difficult it would be for all of us amateur genealogists (He! He!)
Glynne

by halfwit_45 on 2009-04-03 22:01:00

hi glynne no he is not related i don,t think so anyway. that was my mistake i thought when i went looking that was arthur edward my grandfather but jamboree found my lot arthur stevens was under ellen moore,s name as her and stephen were never married did not think that went on way back then arthur my pop was registered in moore but he married sarah hart as stevens and his death certificate he is under stevens i do hope that clears that up and helps a little for us amateur,s. regards yvonne.

by jamboree on 2009-04-04 01:55:25

Hi Glynne

Thank you for the information - my apologies - it has been a long week and I am just catching up on emails now! As far as I am aware, Arthur E son of Edward P and Susannah is not one of this line - but who knows as I have a couple of Edwards who are unaccounted for!! One is supposed to have married Dolly Sellars but I have never found proof of this or marriage details, death etc adn the other one I have no detaisl for except his birth. Neither of them fit the timeframe :-(

If you want to do curly research where families use the same name - try researching Channel Island families with a few common surnames and most of the boys being Pierre Jean and the girls Marie and Elizabeth. So sometimes you end up with Jean son of Jean son of Jean and then his first cousin is Jean son of Jean son of Pierre. Guaranteed to turn you grey prematurely LOL

by jamboree on 2009-04-04 02:07:02

Hi Yvonne

Children of James and Ellen. The relative in Armidale is from the same branch of the family as me - I think from memory Maria is my great grandmother!

Some tidbits about James Shufflebottom
================================================================================
General Notes: Husband - James John Shufflebottom

James was a convict sentenced at Derby on 22 March 1829 for life - crime street
robbery. Transported to NSW on the "Morley". Conditionally pardoned 14 Sep 1842. Distinguishing features: greyhound and hare tattoo on left arm and a woman and two birds on right arm. Religion Catholic.

previous conviction in Cheshire, used to the treadwheel/
ticket of leave 18 Dec 1837/district Port Macquarie/


Armidale Express 9 May 1857.
It is our duty this week to record the premature death of a shepherd, James Shufflebottom, but commonly known as Curly, Curly was well known in Armidale, and its vicinity, we make no apologies for giving full particulars in reference
to his disappearance, and the recovery of his body which was obligingly furnished by members of the party who went in search of poor Curly's body.

It appears Curly left his hut on Tilbuster, near the end of Armidale Creek on Wednesday 29 April, in the afternoon, for the purpose of looking for two of his sons who had run away from home, he was then riding one horse and leading another, was quite sober, and proceeded in the direction of the Rocky. About 2 hours after his departure, the horse he had been riding returned home with an empty saddle. Little notice at first was taken, as the horse had often before returned in a similar fashion, when his master, who was addicted to intemperance stopped away from home. On Tuesday last however, a party of Constables went out on horseback to search for any trace of the missing man, but they returned unsuccessful. On Wednesday a party of 16 or 17 horsemen left
Armidale went to Curly's hut to learn the particulars, and then started off in the direction pointed out to them. The spread across the Bush, and went onto the creek. They then turned and took a new track proceeding towards the hut they had left. At ten minutes past 2, when about a mile from the Boorolong Road, and at a spot half a mile north of Mitchell's Nob, Constable Manning discovered the body, which was lying face downwards on the ground in an open
part of the Bush. The whip of the deceased was still in his hand and his pipe lay near by. The face of the deceased was buried in his hat. Part of two fingers were gnawed off, apparently by native dogs, and his body was otherwise slightly mutilated. It lay in a posture which indicated that the deceased had died without a struggle, as if he had been seized by a fit (he was subject to
fits), had fallen off his horse and died almost instantly. No one touched the body, but a party started to Armidale to report the finding to the Chief Constable. That functionary, we are informed, declining to take any proceeedings in the matter beyond reporting the circumstance to the police magistrate. The Messrs Pearson returned from their fruitless errand, and after
5 pm the entire party left for Armidale, the body it appears, remaining on the spot where it was found, in a wholly unprotected state, until the following morning. We are further informed that the Chief Constable demurred against the responsibility of ordering a coffin until one of the Messrs Pearsons, engaged to incur half the risk, in the event of the expense not being refunded by the Government. The coffin was made, sent out, the body placed in it, and about noon brought into Armidale on a dray and deposited in the graveyard. Messrs Pearson and other parties attended the funeral, and were warned not to inter the body until the Magisterial enquiry as to the cause of the deceased death was terminated. Mr Pearson senior, it seems, then went to the police magistrate, and asked him to view the body so that it might be interred without delay, but we are assured that the request was refused, the body was then
buried.
We cannot terminate these remarks without expressing our opinion that while the Messrs Pearson and other private parties deserve the warm thanks of the community for their perseverance, and their humane conduct, the public will view with displeasure the course pursued by the authorities. We have no
hesitation in saying that, if the facts occurred as above (and we have no testimony of men whose probitys proverbial that they did), we do not recollect a parallel case during many a years residence of the colony. We have been assured that the Messrs Pearson said and did everything that humane feelings could suggest to induce the appointment of a guard over poor 'Curly's' remains, to protect the body from suffering further mutilation by native dogs and birds of prey, but that they were answered that the family of the deceased or any parties that chose could perform the duty or not as they pleased, or if no one did so the native dogs might do what they liked with the body during the night.
Now, if such a remark was made in the spirit in which it appeared to be made, it may be set down as a heartless manifestation which any public official ought to be ashamed of. It is with great reluctance that we have considered it
necessary to speak as we have just done, for it is far more gratifying to our feelings to praise than to blame whenever we can conscientiously take the former course, and especially in reference to parties, whose public duty have
almost invariably discharged with credit to themselves and advantage to the society. We have no personal feeling whatsoever in the matter, and shall fell happy in throwing open our columns to any explanation that can be given to extenuate the circumstances why a body bearing the impression of God's image upon its brow, should be left unprotected for a whole night, in a Bush, in a solitude unbroken save by the howl of the native dog and the croak of the disgusting crow.

re: Stephen Stevens and Ellen Moore
Hi
Just found this group today after typing James Shufflebottom into google.My name is Dianne Myers nee Moore and Ellen Moore is my great grand-aunt.her brother George Moore is my great grandfather. I have quite a lot of information on Ellen Moore, her husband Robert Jones and their 5 children. I have some information on Stephen Stevens who I believe Ellen formed a relationship with sometime after 1873 and went on to have 8 children with.Ellen died in 1939, she was living with her daughter Ivy and her son in law Thomas Redacliff in Hurstville NSW. I have certificates I am willing to share.

Hi

Its great to finally find someone searching this elusive line!I found the first marriage to Robert who appears to have been a school teacher at Ashford and found the five children but that is all I have on that line. I have never found a marriage for Steven Stephens (formerly Shufflebottom) and Ellen - also most of the children from this union were registered as Moore although some later took on the Stevens name.

I have attached the information that I have on this line - if you can fill in any gaps that would be appreciated

Just a note that Harriett Anne Stevens who married Albert Phillips at the Armidale Wesleyan Parsonage on 5th December 1870 is shown on her marriage certificate as Harriett Anne Stephenson, and the name of her father is shown on that certificate as John and her mother as Ellen. We had always thought that Shufflebottom was John James, but on this thread he appears as James John. We have a copy of their marriage cert, Harriett was my great grandmother and Albert was my great grandfather, they had 14 children of which my grandfather is one of those.

by halfwit_45 on 2010-04-15 18:50:51

Hi there john James is my great great grandfather as well Stephen Shufflebottom was my great grandfather and Harriett,s brother Stephen was with Ellen Moore they never married but they had 8 children which she registered in the name of Moore most of them changed the name to Stevens later down the track. regards Yvonne Haley

by Rockborne38 on 2010-04-27 17:02:31

The information below may assist those looking at Steven Stevens (Shufflebottom) it is from our research into John James Shufflebottom and his marriage to Ellen Butler, and this is part of that family tree. Somebody may have included it above, and it appears that after Steven died, even though she had never married him, Ellen Moore changed all her childrens names to Stevens, which is a similar thing done by Ellen shufflebottom nee Butler some time after Curly Shufflebottom died, we are still looking for the reason for that, and not sure if changes were done by Deed Poll in those days, or these ladies just did it and from then on just called themselves Stevens, although the daughter of John and ellen Sufflebottom (Stevens) named Harriett appears on her marriage cert as Stephenson, and she could not read or write.

Steven Stevens, b. 1847 in Port Macquarie,NSW, d. 19.08.1918 in Inverell,NSW, buried 1918 in Catholic Cemetery, Inverell,NSW, cause of death Cirrhosis of Liver / Haematemesis, never married

Changed All her children From Moore to Stevens. And we are not sure what this note from the original by Tom Mace means, as the name Moore in relation to Ellen Shufflebottom (nee Butler) had not previously been noted. This note may relate to Ellen Moore who was the partner of Steven Stevens, note next entry below.

Partner Ellen Moore, not married Never Married, b. 1849 in Ranger Valley NSW, d. 16--2--1939 in Hurstville NSW.

+ 6 v. Ellen Stevens b. 20.10.1848.
+ 7 vi. William Alfred Stevens b. 20.04.1850.
+ 8 vii. John Stevens b. 10.08.1852.
+ 9 viii. Mary Jane ( Polly) Stevens b. 23.06.1854.
+ 10 ix. Henry Thomas Stevens b. 15.04.1856.

We would like to make contact with any descendants of George Henry Stevens, or descendants of Thelma Adelaide Stevens and her husband Garrett Baston Macey, or their daughter Lila Mary (Topsy) Macy to find out if they know where the name Lila came from, or whether any later generations after Lila (Topsy) Collins nee Macey have been given that name, and the reason for our search is shown in detail below

My name is Lila, my mother was Lila, and we have never been able to find out why that name was chosen by my grandparents for my Mother, and that started something, because my Mum and Dad then named me Lila, I gave my two daughters the name Lila as their second name, and my eldest daughter then gave the name Lila as a second name to her two daughter, and one of them, my oldest grand daughter has now told me she is intending to continue that and call any daughters she has with Lila as their second name.

We sort of figured that the name must appear somewhere else in our family tree, because it seemed quite common for parents to name their children after other close relatives, but the only other Lila we have found in our family tree is the one below, a grand daughter of George Henry Stevens, and George Henry is the 5th child and 4th son of William Alfred Stevens, and William Alfred is a brother of my great grandmother Harriett Ann Stevens whose parents were John James Shufflebottom and Ellen nee Butler.

George Henry Stevens, b. 26.04.1883 in Sandy Creek, Graman,NSW, d. 10.06.1960 in Pallamallawa,NSW, buried 1960 in Pallamallawa NSW, occupation Teamster /Bullock Driver/ Station Hand/Bush Work. He married Alice Kate Webster, married 11.07.1906 in "Bogamildi" Station, Pallamallawa,NSW, b. 01.07.1886 in Prospect, NSW (daughter of George Webster and Elizabeth Ashmead), d. 24.11.1970 in Pallamallawa,NSW, buried 1970 in Pallamallawa,NSW.

Children of George and Alice, and it appears they had 11 children.

1st child - Aileen Elizabeth Stevens b. 4--10--1906. in Mosquito Creek. She married Leslie Graham Cyril Griese, married 12--7--1926, d. 16--1--1976 in Ashford NSW.

2nd child of George and Alice and this is the line that interest me most in this particular enquiry.

To Yvonne and Graham Haley,

To lead off on another tangent. I was wondering if you are related to William (Bill) and Susan Haley of Pallamallawa? Their daughter - Elizabeth Jane Haley married Isaac Charles Mahaffey of Moree in 1892. I believe Bill came from Victoria but am having trouble confirming his origins. (This is my husband's family tree)

Thanking you in advance.

When we look at all threads for Stevens, Shufflebottom, Phillips on this and other sites we keep find details of so many people who are so obviously cousins of mine. As mentioned in an earlier post on this site, my great great grandparents were John James Shufflebottom and his wife Ellen nee Butler, my great grandparents were Albert Phillips and his wife Harriett nee Stevens/Shufflebottom and my grandparents were Francis Phillips and his wife Emily nee Basing.

It is so great to find so many cousins I did not know about, and most of whom I have no chance of ever meeting, however, one of the members of the Phillips branch is organising a family reunion of the Phillips branch of the family to take place in Dorrigo in 2012, and I am sure that any members of the huge Shufflebottom/Stevens family will be most welcome to attend, and I intend, once the dates are firm, to put a note on this site to let everybody know, especially the Steven branches, so that we can at last meet some of our other cousins who are descendants of John and Ellen Shufflebottom

by Rockborne38 on 2010-06-23 05:00:58

We need help from other family members who read posts on this site.
we have a family tree for every one of the 10 children of John James Shufflebottom and Ellen nee Butler.
When we say we have a tree, we do, but some are quite basic, and need more details on some of the branches, and some of the twigs on those branches, and we need to add the leaves to some of those twigs, that is, the recent generations on each of the trees, perhaps even current generations. We hope to be able to put all of the trees, together with some more family history, funny stories about the characters in the family, things that some may have been famous for or just plain well known for something - what is a family tree without having history with it, so if you are a family member researching this family please contact us to join the other cousins who are now in regular contact. We have nobody in contact from the family line of James B Stevens, Edward Stevens, Steven Stevens, Ellen Stevens, John Stevens, Mary Jane Stevens and George S Stevens, we have contact with members of the other 3 lines (Harriett Ann, William Alfred, and Henry) and would love to have more.

We are researching family history especially Stevens who lived at 114 Burton Street Darlinghurst known as Hillcrest House. In BDM mentions Wellingrove under a few of the entries for James and Johanna Stevens. Decided to research Wellingrove and came across this site recognising the name James B Stevens and Johanna Rollings who i thing is related to our family. If anyone knows any more information concerning James B Stevens and Johanna would be of interest. If James and Johanna are who I think they are they had about 10 children who lived in Burton Street but born different places. James Edward Stevens is buried at Botany Cementary died 1955 age 92 could be son of James B Stevens?

James Edward Stevens is buried at Botany Cementary died 1955 age 92 could be son of James B Stevens?

Also if any one has ever come across photos of James B Stevens and Johanna Rollings (Rawlings) or any of the Burton Street Stevens I would be interested in a copy or any information at all. Also has anyone heard of a name Kia-ora or Kya Ora related somehow to any of the Stevens in Wellingrove not sure if it is the name of a property or a name.

Hi
According to my information James Edward is the son of James B. Please bear in mind that Wellingrove was the registration district and the children may have been born elsewhere and simply registered at Wellingrove. If you search the newspapers at the National Library of Australia, you will find several references to this family at Burton St.

What is your connection to this family?

Cheers

Yes we know that now, we have found several references to Johanna Stevens nee Rollings or (Rawlings) in newspaper articles and other sources. Johanna was the sister of our great great grandmother Bridget Williamson (also Bennis, first husband) nee Rollings or Rawlings, spelt many different ways. We are interested in the Stevens because Johanna, (Bridget sister) married James B Stevens. We have 1 photo whom we would like to identify, we would like to discount the fact that it could be Johanna. We know from various sources that Bridgets children lived at the Burton Street residence for some time as Bridget died in 1893. We think Johanna helped raise them along with Bridgets older children.

Thanks

I have sent a pm advising jackdog1 that I have photos of the family of James B Stevens, if anybody else is related to him and would like copies send me a pm, I will need your email address to send them to you as I have scanned the photos.

I would also like anybody who has information about Harriett Ann Stevens who married John Andrews in 1903 and then when he died in 1918 she married Lawrence Lenonard Johnson in 1923 at Inverell. We have some details of the children of that marriage, but would like to add more information to the family tree for Harriett Ann Stevens and Andrews and Johnson. We do know that she had 3 daughters to Lawrence, they were Lorna, Wilga and Edna, but very little detail after that, and they are all my cousins, no matter how distant, and I would like to know more about them and their families.

Hi All,
I am brand new to this site....I have been researching the Irwin family from Inverell and had come across my notes on John Irwin and Mary Jane Stevens. I will attempt to explain my family connection to you all. My connection comes from the Irwin's - a sister to John Irwin.
John's parents were - John Irwin and Margaret (Nee McGowan) who married in 1850 at Maitland.
my line as follows: Mary Ann IRWIN born approx. 1857 at Murrurundi NSW married twice - 1.John CAIN (Died 1894) 2. Edward (Jim) HALL. the children were
1.John Cain married Catherine Foreman in 1901
2.Sarah Cain married Richard Henshaw in 1902
3.Mary Cain married Joseph Henshaw
4.Elizabeth Cain married Albert HALL in 1894

My line continues from Elizabeth & Albert HALL (My great-grandparents)

I have more information on the John & Mary Jane (Nee Stevens) line if anyone is interested.

This sounds like a great site, I look forward to any news.

Hullo -  to all my relatives in the Shufflebottom/Stevens family and those many families who have descended from John James Shufflebottom and is wife Ellen nee Butler.

Over the last few months we have been working with Gary Bryant, the author of the book he wrote and produced in 1986 titled From Shufflebotham to Stevens The First Generation
In a joint effort with Gary, we are now almost ready for the issue of an updated version of that 1986 book, which will be  titled From Shufflebotham (and Shufflebottom) to Stevens The Next Generations The book will be available to family members as either a disk version, in Microsoft Word as a word document (doc or docx) or as a printed version. It will contain many photos, information about the descendants as far as great grandchildren of John and Ellen, and some info about the parents and siblings of both John and Ellen. All photos will be as they are held, some are black and white, but many are in colour The cost of the disk will be about the same as the original book, $8 - to cover the cost of the small post office box and registered post to send it to family members in Australia. It may cost a little more for postage to those who live outside Australia.  The printed version may cost more, depending on the cost of paper and ink we have to buy, as we will most probably be able to have them printed for no cost, but may have to buy the paper and colored ink refills for the photocopy machine.  We would prefer that only those family members who do not have a computer ask for the printed version, as those people with a computer can then print the pages themselves if they need the book in printed format.
PLEASE NOTE The book will be Copyrighted, and all family members who purchase a copy of either the disk or the printed version will need to sign an undertaking to agree that the photos and information will not be copied or added either electronically or by any means to any public website This is for your own personal use only , the effort in producing this book has been for family members only and not for public distribution
Those interested in a copy of the updated book can contact me by sending me a private message via this site, just to give us some idea of how many copies we may need to put on disk and how many printed versions we may need, remembering please that the disk version will be cheaper for everybody. If you add your email address to the pm, I will contact you with more details soon
