Leslie and Winifred were my Grand Parents on my Mother's side. I am looking for any descendanys in UK, Scotland or Australia who are related to them or their children. I am particularly interested in finding out what happened to my Uncles and Aunts after my Mother (Jean Elizabeth Cullen [Pryde] - 1922-1974) passed away?

Brian Cullen - 1938 - shearer  

Margaret Cullen - 1930

George - 1928

Leslie - ?

Harold - 1919 - 1945 (KIA Tarakan)

Hi Cousin,

 It's a pleasure to meet you finally. I only remember meeting him a couple of times when I was a kid. Uncle Brian was a "larger than life " character who I remember clearly and fondly from those couple of meetings. Being a shearer, he lived in his car (which looked like it). 

Can you give me some details about him and your mother please? The last time he came to visit was in the early 70's. I have a clear memory of the event but your detail might give it context as I had a teenagers view of what was going on.

To make this conversation less public my email is davidhp@xtra.co.nz

If you are a Myheritage member would you like access to the family site - I just need your email address. 

Do you have any details or contacts for the rest of the Cullens, and I would love to here about your Mothers side.

 

Regards

David Pryde

David,

My name is Keith Cullen. My father was Leslie Charles Cullen  (born 1924, died 1991) who was a younger brother of your mother.

Dad married Jean Wilhelmina Bates (b: 25/9/1923 - ) and had four sons: Rodney (b: 1948 - ), Stephen (b:1952 d:2011)Keith ( b: 1957 - ) and Barry (b:1962 - ). My parents divorced in 1979 after many years of separation and my father remarried (Megan Norris) later that year.

I know very little about my father's side of the family other than the names of his siblings and parents. I came across this link because I was looking up war records of my father (served in the army 1941 to 1946) and grandfather ( Leslie Charles Cullen - senior ) who served in the First World War. Growing up I had little to no contact with any of my father's relatives although I do recall visiting my grandmother on several occassions. Some of his relatives did attend my father's funeral in 1991 but I have little recollection of who they were. Sorry I am unable to help you with any other information about my father's side but I hope this helps.

regards,

Keith Cullen

Hi Keith or should I say Cousin? You are the closest blood relative I have found since starting this project. Let me say it is nice to meet you. When I started here I only had my parents details plus Nanna Cullen who died a couple of days before Dad in 1976.

You are the 351 person in my family tree which to my surprise has an outstanding history in NSW, but little is know about the Cullen's in Victoria. I am very excited that you chose today to make contact. Can I call you or correspond by email - I have so much to talk to you about.

My phone in NZ is 64 94105912

Email:   Davidhp@xtra.co.nz

I have found some other relatives here who you might like to contact as well

Cheers for now

David
