hi evelyn, yes sadly grandad beau passed away in late july 2009. a big loss to us because he took so much info about the family to his grave. he spoke at times if his sister moving to the usa so this is huge to find another branch as we are the only extension in nz/australia. my dad is his only son sonny (born charles aubrey). it would be great to be in touch. im on facebook to so if u see this add me and we can all meet and share.
