Lee Hi Debbie,
Thank you very much for allowing me to join your site. Your records are quite extensive and I am having fun checking my files against yours. One thing that I have found today that will interest you is that Sarah and Emmaline Noakes the daughters of Rebecca Piper and Jane Noakes were twins. Born 31 Jul 1843 in Dapto. I could not find birth records for these two girls. Other files have shown they were born a year apart, but this is no longer the case. I have found the birth records and the birth certificate numbers are consecutive. I have included this information in this note. I always had thought that Emmaline's name was Emily. But now thanks to you that has been cleared up. The name was also spelt incorrectly on records. it was recorded as Knox not Noakes
Birth records

I am not alone in my pursuit of family history. My brother Rex in Melbourne is my partner in crime so to speak. I will tell him that I have joined your site and I hope you will allow him access as well. His name is Lochlan Rex Crawford but we all call him Rex.
He has access to information in Melbourne that I cannot access so it works out well.
Also I would like to tell you my cousin Evelyn McDonald ( born Austin) is interested in what I do but she doesn't join sites I just tell her what I find out. She is the daughter of Matthew Austin (known as Eddie) and Joyce Curvey my Uncle Eddie and Aunty Joyce.
Joyce was the twin sister of my mum Ethel.

Thank you and I will enjoy communicating with you at differnet times.

All the best

Lee Hi Debbie
Could you please check the birth dates of the family of George Lawrence and Mary Purcell. Adrian and Herbert are both recorded as being born in 1884. This seems at first unlikely as there is only 7 months between the births..
Could have they been twins born in either Mar or Oct. I am very maticulious with my research and I check and double check everything. Most of the time the decepencies are just type-os. I would appreciate your help in this matter. The records come from America so it could be difficult.

Thank You

David Quick To Debbie Noakes;

You joined the Francis QUick Web Site. Do you see a connection between our two families.

Perhaps it is through the Sopher Family who moved to Australia. Alta Madeline Dunford married Albert John Sopher. She is the daughter of Gertrude Dunford (ne Quick) , my grandfather's older sister. You will find her on our francis Quick Family Tree
