Jenny Lawlor Hi Mal,My name is Jenny Lawlor, it seems your Great Grandfather Jacob List is my great uncle, the brother to my great grandmother Annie Christina Lewis (nee List) died in 1917 in Maryborough, QLD. Annie Christina was the mother of my grandmother Alice Matilda Madders nee Lewis, thence to my mother Rachel Merle Lawlor (nee Madders). Would love to know more of the List family, or do have info re when the Lists sailed to Australia from Denmark, out of Hamburg Germany. Cheers and Happy New Year, new cousin I guess. Jenny Lawlor.

William Bayly White Hi Mal. I am curious to find out who our common ancestors were. I have traced most of the descendants of Dr Lewis Bayly (ca 1573- 1631) up to the present generation. I have been working on the tree for over 40 years and have not found any mention of your family in it. Would you please advise me of our relationship? I have also traced my Family pedigree back to William the Conquerer and beyond. I would be interested to contact you via ordinary Email or phone. Regards, Bill

John Louis Akard The best way to show others the path from you to your common ancestor deals with the profile of that person. Go to the profile of the common ancestor. In the area above their name is a light blue area with the list of everyone between you and them. Highlight the blue area only, Press and hold the CTRL key and press the C key. This puts the highlighted data on the computer's clipboard. Open a word processor, WordPad will do. Again, holding down the CTRL key and press the V key will retrieve the data from the clipboard. Edit the list. Eliminate the excess line feeds. Do a CTRL A. This highlights the edited data. CTRL C again replaces the old data with the edited data. Go to the Email program. From a blank page there, Do a CTRL V. You now have a list that shows you at the top and your common ancestor at the bottom. If you want them to see the dates on each person, place them before you leave the word processor. Then ask them to return the favor so you can locate them in your tree. Pass this on to others, PLEASE!

Lene Harling Hi Mal
Funny to find Australian relatives in my Family Tree. Actually it’s relatives to my husband. His mother was a descendent from Christen List (Christian Peterson List in your tree), born in 1731, died in 1813. Her father was Jørgen Christian Petersen, born in 1877. Her grandmother was Marie Cathrine Petersen, born List in 1844.

I’m not sure where our Family lines cross – but maybe you know?

I have Matches from 2 more Australians – a woman called Jenny Lawlor and another woman called Kathleen Wheeler. I have read some of the correspondence between you and Jenny.

The tree where we have common ancestors is called: harling family tree. And my husband name is Søren Michaelsen. Harling is my family name.

If you are interested, I will send you an invitation to my page.

Henning Dons Hello cousin;-)
It's absolutely fantastic, our family roots go back as far.
I look forward to seeing your family tree - and I hope that you get great pleasure when visiting my family tree.
Here in Denmark we have winter - and the temperature is about 2 degrees.
I hope you are well.
All the best!

Mal Cockburn Hi Henning, The temperature here is in the 30s (degrees C), the height of summer, a little different to what you are experiencing at the moment. Some have found the summer heat in Queensland too much, as seen in this Queensland Newspaper article from 1879: "The Death of an immigrant. On Saturday last, an enquiry was held at Tiaro into the case of death of one Andreas Paulsen, a Dane who was found dead by the roadside, near Nolan's Camp, on Friday. From what we can gather, it appeared that the deceased and his brother aged, respectively 20 and 18 years of age arrived in Brisbane by the Fritz Reuter about 10 days before and that they came out to their uncle , Mr List, who lives on the Pialba Road. On arrival at the Brisbane depot, they applied to be sent on to Maryborough, but were refused, though they stated they had no money. The two poor lads then started to tramp overland from Brisbane to Maryborough without the means of purchasing either shelter or food. Ignorant of our language or country or climate, and with the dreadful heat of last week, the only wonder was that they got so near their journey's end. On Friday afternoon while passing through Tiaro he complained of violent headache. Two or three miles further on, the brothers went to a house to beg a bit of bread, and a kindhearted women, seeing their exhausted state made tea for them. The poor fellows then continued their journey, but after walking a mile or two, Andreas said he could go no further. He laid down, there was a short agony, he was dead! There is no doubt that the cause of death was the intense heat. We understand that Mr Bailey, who held the enquiry has forwarded to the Government a statement of the facts and has demanded an enquiry into this apparently cruel business,. Here were two new arrivals compelled by red tape to hardships directly they arrived in the colony, which few old hands could endure. The question is, had they not a right to demand that they should be on here, and why did the Brisbane Government agent refuse their request? We hope Mr Bailey's advocacy of this case will prevent such an inhumane mode of dealing with immigrants being repeated. Feb 25 1879."

Cheers, Mal.
