WOW!! Is this a bolt out of the blue. It's been more than 9 years since I posted that message. You have made my day!!!
I am still very much into my family genealogy but had just about given up in this side of the family due to the Smith surname and the hassle of dealing with the NZ BDM's from this side of the ditch. (South East Qld is my home).
I would rather deal directly via email than go through Ancestory so my email is firstname.lastname@example.org
if you want to contact me directly.
I have got a couple of questions before I could answer you without giving wrong information and making your search harder and even more confusing and frustrating.
I have no info on Frederick but I have info showing that he had 7 siblings (4 brothers and 3 sisters) including Averial Iris Smith (my grandmother) and Aubrey Lorimer Smith.
What relationship would Frederick be to you?
Would this William John Smith be Fredericks' father?
Do you know anything of their mother Laura?
Hoping to hear from you soon.
