looking for ASHWOOD family that is currently staying in Australia origing lerwick shetland and I believe Dunfermline, scotland twins and a sister were in Dr Barnardos and sent to Australia in i think the ealrly 60s with thier fathers blessing? most of the old relatives have died but I am trying to find out about them as my mother right up to her death always talked about them. She did a salvation army search and christine was found but did not wish to be contacted this was in 1976 she was expecting her first child.
