Re. Georgee,

Thanks for your message. Love to catch up as also in NZ. Nicolas's death certificate stated born in Egypt, which is hopefully correct. In the old days it seemed you could say anything when it came to government requirements for birth/death certificates etc. Did have a grandmother on a different side of the family who seemed to get younger with every child she had born.
I can't reply to your messages via the system as need to post three times. If you want to leave my a contact email I can make contact or ask me to post again.

Thanks Jason.
