Hi Linda, yes it's lovely to hear from family who are researching the same ancestry and these type of sites have made it so much easier to get in touch and learn more.
Thank you for the file of information - it is wonderful to add to what I already know. I will soon be able to put my complete information back together again and add your information to it.
I've never lived in the Hurstville area, although I believe my father and his family grew up there. Dad and Mum moved to the outer western suburbs of Sydney in the early 60's (when I was born) and the rest of his siblings moved out our wayover the years. I don't believe there are any family left there now. Mum and Dad are now living even further west in Cowra, now that they have retired and I live close to the Blue Mountains in Penrith.
If you would like to contact me via my email address (listed below) and provide your postal address I will copy the photos and send them along.

I tried to find yours but it is not listed on your info here.
Anyway, thank you again for contacting me and I look forward to hearing from you directly.
