G'day neilb1

No need for an apology!

Haha looks like we're 3rd cousins or something like that!?!

Samuel Douglas was my great uncle, he had 3 brothers and a sister and only my grandfather had children - i.e. not a lot of offspring from that generation!

By the way, I found on another tree your grandmother Clara Agnes had in brackets in her name (Poga) do you know what this might refer to?

Yeah happy to share notes
