All I know of my UK ancestors is recorded on the "English Heritage" page of my website. If you have anything to add, I would be very grateful.
Thank you.

Would you have any information on Alfred Welham (Annie's immediate older brother), born in Newcastle, NSW in 1868 and died in Kenton Victoria 24/05/1920?
