My Name is Michelle Phyllis Laurie I'm 17 and i'm trying to find out more about my family lines.
I Live in a place on the NSW eastern coast of Australia known as Ballina. I Live at home with my Dad and mum. My dad is the Ahrens descendant... his name is Reginald David Laurie and he has one younger brother Ronald Allan Laurie who Lives in Brisbane QLD. Their parents names were Phyllis Meta(Ahrens)and David Laurie who were married in Casino in 1937.
Phyllis had 3 other siblings; Reginald Douglas, Sadie Elsie, and Dorothy Jean.
Their Parents names were Fredrick Athur Aherns and Sarah Elsie Pierse.
Fredrick was one of 13 children.
I believe Fredrick's parents names were Carl Franz Wilhelm Ahrens (b.Germany) and Dorothea (thats all i know about her).
Today i found out some interesting infromation that Fredrick was belived to have had a previous marriage and bore more children whom i know nothing about..
He is to believed to be buried at Lismore NSW Australia after passing away in 1924 in his late home of Pinchins Lane, Goolmangar.
i would love to know more about all thisas i am interested infinding out my roots.
