Trying to find Hancock

Trying to find my father's relatives who emigrated to Australia in the early 60's. Have made contact with Barry Osborn who lives in New Zealand, and we find we have the same great-grandfather!My mother is 83, and I would love to find some links with the past as she was an only child and we are a small family with no links beyond her. I remember meeting these relatives some 40 years ago and have often wondered what became of them, and whether they settled in Oz.
