I am over the moon having received this information on my 'Canadian connection'! Thank you for such a prompt reply satch42179. Are these ancestors on a tree of yours? I now want to ensure I discover more about Florence having an original letter she wrote to her Aunt Florence in Australia.

Glad to have been of help. No relation.

I am a displaced Canadian living in Australia.

If you need anymore lookups let me know through this site and I will see what I can do.

1921 census should be released in June.
