Hi Alan, thanks for your email. The old friend I mentioned that married Neil Thew is a girl I met when I worked at the snow fields called Tracy...I cant recall her last name..I worked with her off and on for a few years about 20 years ago. Is this the same person who married your brother? I only met Neil a couple of times briefly at the snow. He told me that originally there were three Thew's that came to Australia...they were from 3 walks of life...ie convict, architect and dr...I always wondered which one I came from...lol. Anyway it would be nice to know who the first three were and what they did as it was so long ago I think Ive got the professions mixed up.
