  1. If you are interested in the history of Robert Robinson Alexander I may be able to help. He was baptised at St Mary Magdalene, Taunton, Somerset, England 28 Dec 1802 see He also had a son William Henry and a son John (John was born in Honiton on Otter as was William Pratt). Robert Robinson was a Currier in 1830 in Honiton High St.
    His older brother James was my 3rd great grandfather. Please contact me if you wish to discuss further.


  2. My name is Aaron Boyes and my grandfather was John Lewis Gransden, son of Raymond Earl Gransden and Alma May Lower. My wife and I are working on our family tree also and even though we have just started I was a thrilled to find someone else in my “family” working on this also. I have the more recent lines from John Lewis and his wife Shirley Jean Burkett. Would be glad to pass it along. Would I be able to join the Bean tree on with you? I am trying to track the Burkett side but haven’t had luck yet. Hope to hear from you soon!

  3. My Great Great grand mother was Susan Clune nee Dolan , she was Dominic Dolan’s Sister , Dominic was the owner of Land in Sydney , now know as Dolan’s Bay

    • Hi Sue,
      thank you for getting back to me so quickly. I will email you privately with the information that I have for Elsie Payne. I got onto you through her sister who it sounds like you are more closely connected to. So I don’t know if I can help you with Hilda Payne but I can certainly help you flesh out the family a bit.

  6. Hello Tina,
    I read your comment on Teffania’s stuff in 2013 and would love to see your work with regard to this beautiful book. It would be a real treat to see the photos of the replica you made as well.
    Thank you so much for any information you can provide me about the Folding Calendar/almanac book.

      • Sorry, I have been unable to do much with my website at the moment. I will be adding them with the next update. It takes some time to update each page so it will be some time before it is next updated. I aim to do an update over the next month or so.

  9. Love your website. I sent a message earlier today with my theory about which convict William Russell is. I also tried, unsuccessfully to send some info and an article about the death of a Mary Ann Russell at Carcoar in 1897. The email address you supply above keeps bouncing back. How can I send you the info?
