I am trying to find Francis ( Jock ) Tatnell's and Patricia nee Kelb's siblings.

Rescued photos that where going to be destroyed of their children.

Would like to give back to the children of this marriage.

Have you tried Search All Trees (under the Search button above).

There are other members who have both Francis and Patricia in their trees.

You could try contacting them to see if there is a connection.

If you send a message to a member I would suggest that you delete the "let me see your tree" message that has been put there by Genes Reunited and type your own message giving information on who you are looking for.

There is one tree for Francis (Jock) Tatnell on Ancestry but wife and children except one child is "private" the details of which are too recent to put on the boards
You can view the tree on this free link from where you can make contact with the tree owner

Thank you for all your replies.
I did have a look on Mundia Barry and I have sent message to the only one child on there's connection.
I may hear back.
Be a shame if I am unable to give the photos to family members.

Hello Cook - why not edit the title of your thread to include Tasmania - that way some of our "down under" researchers may spot it and be able to help with records.

Hi All,

Found the boys in the photos.

Unfortunatley one has passed away but the others are keen to make a

connection with their family here in Tassie

Thanks for the feedback - great news

Had a wonderful three hours with the eldest of the four boys that were left by their mother to be put in a boys home.
One had a tragic childhood and was kiled in a car accident at 17,
Two of the others are very keen to make the connection with family,
the other doesnt want to know - hopefully he will come around at a later date.
They had never seen the photos and were glad to have them
