  1. Hello, Gordon....I want to wish you a verrrry HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! It's nice to know that there's ONE person who's older than I am!!! Hope you will have had a great day!!! Friends, Joan
  2. Gordon, glad to be your friend. I also have many ties to England. If you look into my "album" you will meet my grand-dad from Sussex, and my grand-mum came from Chelsea in London. I have one cousin nr. Southampton, now. Belong to GenesReunited site, although am not all caught up on the genealogy. More later, as it's late here, & I need my so-called beauty sleep!!! Joan
  3. Hi Joan,
    Spot on; 1938 is birth year. Ancestry is probably 2/3 Scottish, both parents born there (Falkirk) and all the rest is English. My cousin Wendy who is a retired teacher/librarian has traced back to the 1600's on both sides of the family. I just fill in the odd research gap as she is the real research guru. My main claim to fame was discovering close family we did not know anything about; then Wendy took over and did all the hard work, she has quite a comprehensive database on RootsWeb.
    I also ticked the 'friend thingy" so it now should appear [I think]
    cheers
    Gordon.
  4. HI, Gordon...I did get your message, & I guess I got you confused with I think "Ranald". However, I do know where Tasmania is, as I've read a book years ago about it, all I can remember is it was a guy, & he lived there. I've had pen friend in New Zealand, & have one (female) in Melbourne, OZ, who is the closest to me via letters, if you get what I mean? I have been impressed with some of your postings, & your color pic is quite fine... What ancestory are you? I am half English/ half Scot,Irish,German,poss. Spanish, poss.French. What a mix! You sound as though you were born in 1938 (my observation), and I was born in 1940. However, you are now a Knight, & I am a mere Citizen!!! Write back, I'm curious. Joan Would you like to be my friend??
  5. Hi Joan,
    I don't know if my reply to your message re: location showed up correctly, I'm in Tasmania (Australia)
    I didn't want you to think I had been ignorant and ignored your question.
    cheers
    Gordon
  6. Thanks for "liking" my gardening probs with rabbits, etc. I'm interested in finding out where you are? Are you in Scotland? Joan/FriedaKateM
