janilye - 7th generation, Convict stock. Born in New South Wales now living in Victoria, carrying, with pride 'The Birthstain'.
Today I found out what happened to my great grandfather Alfred McAlpin Eather.
Missing for a hundred years. My grandfather stated he was deceased on his marriage registration in 1922 because everyone assumed he was because he had not been heard of in over 24 years.
I've had the pleasure of finally adding a date and place of death.
Now that I've found him I think how silly of everyone not to have found him before.
Especially ME I'm supposed to be the expert!
A little embarrassing really !
Never give up, it's probably staring you in the face.
