Comments:
Easy to use website. Not too fancy or complicated. Font sizes appropriate. I thought you might have my uncle Ivan (Wilfred) Walker in your tree, but he's not the one- can't find him anywhere except my own tree :-(

Comments:
I am interested in the Geeves family in as much as both Alfred (b.1875) and Samuel (b 1872) were married to relatives so distant it almost doesn't matter. Both Sarah and Emily were daughters of my ex mother in laws' great great grandmother (work that one out) and I don't like loose ends on my site. I cannot find any records of the birth of all of this family except Ellen, Jessie and Martha and would appreciate the source of your information. I have found confirmation of the marriages and would like to verify the Geeves family connections. You can see were I'm from at www.rjoleary.com I would like to exchange info Thanks

Hi Lesley, I am descended from the Geeves, namely Amy Esther - youngest daughter of Reuben and Mary. I see you are lacking info on that line of the family. I can supply most of the names- not completely sure of the dates.Amy and her daughter, Madge, took a trip down Otago way in 1962 and met many of the relatives. I have been reading the diary and trying to match up the names with the family tree. How are you connected?

What was the best part of the site? the Carnatic page
Comments:
I was interested in the page on the ship Carnatic because the same ship brought my Challenger ancestors to Rockhampton Qld in 1879. I have some details at http://member.melbpc.org.au/~barryc/index.htm
I'd be interested in a picture of the ship, but can't find one.
Cheers,

Hello, Firstly Congratulations on your Family Tree well done Countrybump99 I guess that stands for "country bumpkin" ?
so many surnames in your tree, I found you at www.familytreecircles.com and was hoping in desperation that I just might find a surname that
connects with mine however not so,although several surnames which brought me to your site.
Carty,Dixon,Jeffery/Jeffrey ,McCarthy, Ryan,Scott,Tieney,Tuohy.

One surname Jeffery did relate only as place,as my Jeffery/Jeffrey ancestors did come from the Isle of Wight the only information I have is
as follows......

My ggrandmother Hannah Wright/Wight Seymour Jeffery
her father was Henry Seymour Jeffery b1850-d1918 married Ellen Dixon parents Edward Dixon /m Margaret Paton
Henry's parents Frederick Hannah Wight Seymour all from Isle of Wight Nana was named after the place Wight, as in Isle of Wight
other christian names were surnames Seymour, Wright,.as far as I know.

Maud Mary Eggers was a sister to Violet May Eggers - married name: (McCaughern) (They are actually buried in the same cemetery) Violet was my husbands grandmother - her daughter, was Olga May McInnarney. Olga was born in 1919 and adopted out at approx 3 years of age to the Morgan family in Karori. We have very little information on Violet and would love to know if the family has any family photos available to copy.
