I'm still going to try and sort this out with Optus, I tried to email
them the other day and I couldn't so frustrating.
To answer your question no I'm not an ex-pat born and raised Australian
(6 generations) with Irish, Scottish and English background. I've been
doing family history research for over 30 years now and I'm doing research
into my last Irish ancestor, my convict Michael Byrne. I've helped other
friends here with their families as well.
I started doing research on Henry Fuller in 2010 gave it a break for a
while and now I'm back in the saddle again (so to speak) with a few aches
and pains I might add.
If nothing I'm very persistant (must be stubborn Irish blood) and I don't
like giving up. I'm doing this research for my friend Kathy because she has
done so much for me and I would like to find the answer to the Henry Fuller
puzzle as a gift to her. I've been talking with a professional Genealogist
over there and if I have to pay some money well so be it I don't expect
something for nothing.
You have family in Tasmania, Kathy and I have been there twice, we were
there this time last year it's so lovely there.
Funny you should mention Philadelphia that's where I am searching at the
moment, how funny, just in case I have to cover all my bases. Hope I can
get this Optus/Comcast business sorted out. Lovely chatting with you.
