My grandmother was a Falkiner and the Josepph Falkiner that you mention was her uncle !!!! We have a huge amount of information about him and he was a real character by all accounts. We are in contact with one of his decendants in America and my grandmother was in contact with many of them for years. It would be great to hear from you or anyother 'Falkiners'. I am due to move soon and this e mail address becomes redundant from 25.07.01. If I do not here from you I will try and contact you after I move. I look forward to hearing from you.
