Hi Brendan,Thank you for your reply. I was hopeful of establishing a contact so that I could dig a bit deeper into my family tree. I am also planning to visit the UK on a work related trip this year (end of March) and would like to be able to visit some of the general areas/districts where my ancestors came from.I suppose next steps would include locating an address for Samual and Martha Jane and family lived prior to migrating to Australia in 1874. (I have located some information on Martha ***** *****land's family through a blog I have located in the net.)Next step I am thinking, would be to dig up some more information on John Searle and Elizabeth Fisher (and their children/parents etc).Could you also let me know the details/conditions of my subscription as it was a little unclear when I submitted my info on Monday night. Once again thanks for your replyRegardsGrant

Thank you Joseph. Your work is appreciated. The references you have found to Sam's service in the Cimera and the China Wars are very interesting. Many be there would be more info from Sources on his services histroy and units that he served in?I suppose the next step would be to try and find the next generation back from John Searl/e and Elizabeth Beriman (as noted above).Kind regardsGrant
