Hi my name is Carole Allison. I am 77 years old and my daughters want to know about their ancestry.I am trying to find my grandfather on my mother's side/ Frederick Norman Faris and my grandmother Florence Caroline Faris nee Clements She died in Samarai in 1918 when my mother Jean was only 4 years old. He worked in Samarai and then retired to Sydney. He died near Gosford NSW  in 1940. I believe he could have been born in NZ in 1881 or 1882
