Re: TAIT thomas 1885 england
I don't think I saw your posting, before the new advice system came in [recently?], but I don't know anything about your Thomas, but read on if you haven't got the information you seek about the Australian branch.
I live in Australia and there are CD's or other means for finding Australian immigration records, births, deaths and marriages, etc and I have access to some of them through our public libraries, the Public Records Office and the Immigration Museum, etc. Do you know which Australian state your relatives came to for that would help considerably
All the best
