Looking for Father - Mother is Lorraine Cruse born Pittsworth Toowoomba, live Gold Coast Area. Lorraine worked Gold Coast area cleaing and scaling fish about the year 1961, she would of been 15 at the time, this is where she met my father, they were not together long he was of Italian/Sicilan heritage ( darked skin) according to her. Loraine was 16 when she had me in Brisbane. I was born prem on 26 February 1962 and put up for adoption. Her parents were Clara and Leonard Cruse, she had one brother Nowell who was a year older. Lorraine married Don Newcombe 1963( he was high up in the Table Tennis on the Gold Coast) they had 2 more sones, Donald and Roy.
My grandmother was adopted out and her biological parents names were Pauline Carmen Whitehouse / Wright or Louis Australia Wright.
Pauline passed away shortly after my grandmothers birth which was in 1924 but im not sure when Louis passed away (or even if he has passed away). I think she was born in Paddington, NSW, Australia but cannot be sure and dont have any DOB details.
Louis served in WW1. I think he was born on 9th October 1883 in Victoria, Australia.
Pauline and Louis married in Bourke, NSW, Australia in 1914.
I believe they had 4 children, Jack Inglis, Colin Edward & Joyce as well as my grandmother who was named Doone Sheila (when adopted her name was changed to Joan Thelma).
Anything you can offer to assist with locating blood relatives of Pauline or Louis would be fantastic as we are hoping to create a family tree but cannot trace back any further than that.
Hi There, I am wondering if anybody can help me find my half siblings, I am looking for my 1/2 brother Raymond Raine, He grew up with Marlene and the rest of the family, real mothers name is Phyllis Braby / Thomas was left with Phyllis's sister Venice Raine. Last seen he left Ingham and went to Nt to search for his mother and nobody has ever heard of him since. His birth date is 24th or 25th of feb, 1947 born in Ingham Queesland.
I would love to meet Raymond with his permission, I am sorry it has taken me so long to search for you, however I did not know you existed until just recently I started to do my family tree. Regards Janine
