A HUGE THANKYOU to the incomparable Ginny.I posted my query re
placenames for the above family,and within less than an hour,Ginny had
not only answered my query but had also given me shipping records etc.
about this family's migration to Australia,and had given me far more information than I had asked for,or expected.

To say I am grateful is an understatement.I have been working on this family since I joined Genes Reunited three and a half years ago,and until
this week have been going around in circles,never really sure whether'the information was relevant to the family or not.

My Trainor brick wall was beginning to crumble;now it is smashed to smithereens! Thanks to Ginny all the pieces of this puzzle are coming together now.Thank you so much, Ginny. I will be forever grateful for your help.

People say on here all the time, "Never give up," and it's true,sometimes it only needs a fresh pair of eyes,and a problem is sorted.That's what makes this site so successful,you only have to ask for help,and wonderful people like Ginny will spring into action and help you.They give freely of their time and effort,and make this site very special.

Thank you, Ginny,

Thank you, Genes Reunited.
