Wlliam and Fanny Gertrude and their 5 children emigrated to Australia way back in the 1930's or soon after. Are any of their children GR members over there in Oz I wonder. Any help in tracing this family would be gratefully received by the descendants of Fanny Gertrude's siblings here in England.

Oh Sue - thanks so much. I am overwhelmed and so will be all the family of Fanny Gertrude's siblings - 9 of them!

You really are amazing to find that out. I am too old for this game I think.
Best regards,
Jennifer

Hi Jennifer, if you edit your title to include Australia some of the members over there may be able to give you more info on the family once they got to Aus.

Hi Jennifer,
I remember Auntie Kitty & Auntie Fanny when I was a small child, they are related by marriage on Mum's side. Mum was a Holland/ Regan. Auntie Kitty was my Grandmother's sister. I am compiling some information on these two & the Hooker family. If you are still interested would you please email me direct on :
*******
and I will give you the information that I have.
All the best for 2013
