Australian Cousins - and autobiography

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date


Michael Report 12 Feb 2012 22:48

I have to thank the GR researchers who not only gave me a very great deal of information about my ancestors who had emigrated to Australia, but as a direct consequence of that I have been able to contact their descendants and have been given copies of letters posted almost a century ago between members of the family as well as a transcribed copy of my own great grandfather's hand written autobiography.

I could not have wished for greater success than this. The family here didn't even have a name for him - other than his surname of course which we share, and now I have his life story. Very many thanks to all concerned.
