Hi all, I'm back for a month or so on summer break, hoping to update everything in this time and should be responsive to all messages now. 4th Dec 2015


Married [1] and mother of four.

Descended from Irish and English settlers to Australia, some of them convicts, some free settlers. One line believed to be Australian aboriginal but details are lacking.

I have lived in most states of Australia but am now settled in South Australia where the summers are wonderful and the winters just about bearable.

I began researching my family tree when I was ten, visiting my great grandparents in (to me) exotic New South Wales. I was fascinated by pictures on their walls of people in old style clothes and they brought out a family bible to show me.

I felt a connection between the past and my present which I have never lost.

Hi Irene

Dinah Green (born Wookey) was my GG Gmother born in Baltonsborough, Somerset around 1841. Sometime after the 1861 Barton St David, Somerset Census she immigrated to New York where she met and married Benjamin Batt Green who immigrated to NY on the ship 'Compromise' in 1859. He came from Shepton Mallett/Stoke Lane, Somerset. Their first child, Edward Benjamin Green, was born in Manhatton, 2nd May 1869. All appear in the 1870 NY Census where she gives her name as Dilly. They returned to the UK pre 1874 as Edward’s siblings John William and Frederick Percival Green were born in the UK (1881 Census, Sturminster, Dorset). This time Benjamin Green gives his wife's name as Jane (also born Baltonsborough) but in the 1891 Christchurch, Dorset, Census her name became Dinah again.

Hello Irene

Please could you add me to the Anzac project. After researching my grandfather's service on the western front and knowing the impact on the rest of his life for him and his loved ones, I know there are lots of other unsung heroes whose stories are waiting to be told Gillian

Hi Irene - You are probably not available at the moment - I'll follow up with the other Anzac leader. Thanks Gillian
