Thankyou for your reply. I am just a beginner. Last year I went to live in Dunedin where I knew my grandfather died. I had had no contact at all but with time on my hands I found the family. Benjamin Joseph HILL is my g grandfather. The interesting thing is that the family came out to NZ abt 1864 from Melbourne all of them went back to Melbourne in the late 1870-early 1880's except for Benjamin Joseph HILL. I have not found shipping records but I did find a Militia record where they signed up ie Richard snr & jnr and Benjamin Joseph HILL.I have put alot onto a Family tree program HOWEVER at present I cannot find the disk since moving. I will try to scan a simple family tree and some family groups and email them to you. Will take a few days. I think I have found the christening of Richard HILL b 1818 Limerick City and his brothers and sisters. I have most of the family for Charles William and Matilda HILL but not William Arthur HILL 1889-1955 died Melbourne. Victor George died WW1.
I am interested in tracing Edwin Benjamin and Lydia HILL nee WELLINGTON Herbert Richard HILL b 1903 Charles Arthur Septimus HILL b 1905 There are no records here for marriages for when they may have got married. There are many more questions but I will leave it at that. Thanks again for the email. I have had an email from a member of the LYCETT family and meant to email some more info but haven't. Sally
