My name is Ian Whittall. I live in Canberra, Australia.
My ten year old daughter Christine is researching her family tree as a school project so I was trying to find out some more information to help her out.
Does anyone know much about Whittall's in Australia? If my memory serves me correctly there was someone researching our branch about 20 years ago. I think his name was Michael and he lived in Mildura, Victoria. I don't know if he kept it up.
Some of the information I have is: -My Dad was Alan Charlton Whittall m. Jean Elaine Carlill -My Grandfather was Jack Whittall m. Elsie Mitchell -His father was Percy Whittall m. Grace Perry.
I don't have much info on dates and places of birth so this is what I'd like to find out.
Also, I vaguely remember Turkey as having some place in our history. Is this the case.
Unfortunately my Dad died last year and my mother in 1989.
I hope someone can help.
PS. Maybe someone is interested in some info I have on my mothers side (Carlill). I have copies of a couple of old birth/death certificates I could mail.
