I am trying to find out if there was a Methodist Church in Franston. My mother told me her Uncle had gone to Melbourne as a Methodist Minister. My family thought I must be wrong on this matter. Well my brother has just found a photo (torn in half of course) it appears to have been taken in the 1920's -judging by the clothes- and on the back is the following details. Grainger, ndal St ston, Vic, N18 Melbourne Australia I assumed rightly or wrongly (being a Pomme) that it must be Frankston. Can anyone help or advise. Sorry so little info, spent a week looking for passengers but can only find for the 1800's Thank you Pat
