Hi, so sorry not to have replied before, I put on hold my research into Ancestry, but I have a little time to hopefully do some more digging. My father, Frederick John Smith is first cousin to Reg, as their mothers were sisters, although I think Linda and Frank left when dad was very young, or maybe before he was born, so I don't think he knows how they left the country exactly. He has memories of some of his uncles and aunts, so if you have any questions he might be able to help...... Promise I will check this forum in future!
Kind regards to a distant cousin. :)
