Wow! thanks Heather, plenty for me to digest there.
I'll have to do some work here to see if I can match any up, I know one of the ones I'm looking for is a William.
Since I posted this I have located one of mine in Tasmania, or rather someone else located them for me. Sometimes background info is important as it can give clues which might tie in with other info that has'nt made sense before. So you got yourself a nice little hobby, I also enjoy doing all this family tree stuff and through Genforum and Genesreunited I have found relatives in Oz/Canada/US.
