John Holcombe

Monica Report 12 Feb 2013 18:58

I am looking for my cousin John Holcombe or any of his family in Australia. As far as I know John emigrated with his family from Scotland in the 1960's. He was the son of Ernest and Nellie (Helen) Holcombe, Ernie being my late uncle. I would just like to know what happened to this branch of the family. Any information would be welcome/

You have Ernest, born Glasgow, 1917 in your tree.
When was John born, and did he emigrate with his parents or with his wife and children?
Possible you could change your title to include 'Australia' so that people living there would notice your post?
