i am here on the outskirts of London, UK and am trying to contact my relatives in Perth, Western Australia- my sisters Corrine and Wendy, my brother Kevin and any other members of the WHITE and WAKE and JACKSON families that remember me.

I read yesterday of my cousin Randoph's death earlier this year, what a shock! I know that you have been trying to contact me on this site, but can't access the message that appears to be here under the heading above.

Would love to make contact

How do you know that someone is trying to contact you on GR?

Have you had an e-mail from GR advising you of this?

If the message which will be in your inbox under 'Messages'.............and send a reply

As you have only just joined, any messages must be from current members

Have you looked in the Australian telephone directory for your relations?

Presumably, you know the current surnames of your sisters............
