Hi Roslyn I live in Australia and have been researching my great grandfather Frederick William (or William Frederick) Probst and saw your message. He married Amy Benham in 1887 in Murrurundi New South Wales and my grandfather John Frederick Probst was born in 1894 and married Mary Farrar in 1925 in Newcastle New South Wales.My father John Leslie Probst was born in 1926 in Newcastle New South Wales. My grandfather and his father were estranged and when he went to the First World War in 1915 he named his mother as next of kin, although his father was still alive. are we related? do you have an Australian background?
