Welcome to rootschat Fionair1981.

You must be a cousin of some sort of the person I was doing this research for.  :)

You mentioned that Cyril's brother died when you were 5. There were 6 boys in the family, including your Cyril and my acquaintance's ancestor Edwin James. Are you referring to the death of Horace John?

If you read through this thread you will see that this is a very complicated family. I admit to being very rusty on the details as it has been several years since I worked on this.

Let me know if there is anything specific you would like to know and I'll see if I can help.

Hi,

My pop was Alfred Ronald passed in -November 1986. I have to go back through my family tree and the thread and figure out what I have is correct and what isnít. It all gets very confusing.

The family (well my parents) were unaware of Cyrilís oldest child and his first marriage he did end up marrying Georgina but not until late in life and had the one child Colin.

We have made contact with his grandson I think in Waikerie and his children and wife these are my 2nd and 3rd, 4th cousins.
I started doing my family tree out of curiosity to see if we had any previous diagnosis of autism as my son is autistic.
I do believe we have a relative in an institution here in SA but unsure of his name and where. The only person who knows info is my Aunt Patricia but she is ill with Cancer.

I am wanting to know the names of my dads great grandparents and further back I seem to get stuck there. Also i am curious to know of any indigenous connections as my dad and myself have olive skin. Iím very different to the rest of the family and I know that I am not adopted :-) lol

Lionel has also triggered my curiosity with what he posted and mum confirmed that Ernest is family.
