Hi Linda, Think I may have replied to the wrong person first so will send a reply to you also. There are many Nuske families in Australia, thefirst ones arrived in 1847 and came mainly from Nekla Hauland, Kries Schroda, Posen in Prussia. In 1997 a committee published a book on the Noske and Nuske families here and we recorded almost 16000 descendants so it was a large book. Do you have any information on the early Nuske families as we can go back to about 1760 on some of our lines. We are always trying to find out any new information on the Nuskes.
