Doreen - Hello! Remember me - we communicated over this family when I was still living in Australia about 6 or 7 years ago - just after my grand-daughter who is descended from these people was born. You are a cousin of sorts to Nola Dalton/Edwards/Gourley and my grand daughter's mum is Nola's grand-daughter. We are still trying to figure this lot out. As I said I am now living here in NZ in Wanganui please contact me julzstokes@xtra.co.nz... regards Julie Stokes on behalf of Sonia Whalen nee Rees whose mother Shona is Nola's daughter
