- SHARON GILLIS ..... For the TASKER information and for sharing with me the lovely photographs of the Tasker, Wilton and Oliver families.
- DOUGLAS ABBOTT ..... I would like to thank Doug for the information on William Abbot's family history. Doug emailed me with some information and I have managed to find other snippets of information on the net put out there by Doug seeking information on his 'Abbott' family. If anyone could help add names or photographs for this family I would love to be able to pass them on to Doug. If you have any further information please Email: firstname.lastname@example.org

- WHITE WINGS .....For information on Ships passenger lists, dates and travel experiences
- ROGER THOMAS .....For LAVENDER and ADAMS Family Tree. (Roger's site can be found on Links and Contacts page.)
- KAY ALLEN .....For the work that brought about the WINTER Family reunion many years ago. Thank you Kay for finding 'US' your family and bringing about the knowledge of the Winter's. Much of Kay's hard research is what now appears on my Winter Family pages. Kay spent many many hours doing research, meeting and writing to Winters all over the world and then gave me (and so many others) the opportunity to get to know our 'WINTER' family by bringing together so many of us in one place. It was from my Aunt Kay that I caught the 'genealogy bug' from which there appears to be no cure. Hopefully I can pass on this terrible epidemic to others. Thanks Kay.
- GORDON WILSON ....Gordon has provided me with much of my Australian WINTER family information and links. Gordon has put together a journal of his Australian 'WINTER's' and 'CAIRD' story and kindly sent me a copy. Gordon also sent me copies of letters sent from England to Australia dating back to 1870's era which has given me an insight into what life was like for our Australian cousins and for the family that remained in England. Gordon has sadly past away but has left us with a legacy of information.
- LESLEY LOMAS .....I would like to thank Lesley Lomas for her great Web-site and the information available on the Chandler-Hooper-Ranson families. Lesley's Web-site can be found on Links and Contact page.
- ADELE PENTONY .....Thank you Adele for the Headstone Photographs. Adele is Archiving the burials in the Wairarapa district in New Zealand and has kindly given her time to me and sent me many of my 'headstone' photographs for me for use on my site. Much additional information can be found on headstones and Adele's work is a valuable asset to any genealogist. If anyone can see an opportunity to help Adele link families to the names on headstones or unmarked graves please take the time to do so as Adele has given so much of her time. Her research is a valuable tool for Genealogists around the world who cannot visit their NZ Ancestors burial sites.... Wish there were more people like you Adele. Sincere thanks from me.
- CHAR-LU DINGER ..... Has provided me with much of my Tacon Family information. Char-Lu is very generous in sharing her information and forthcoming in updating me with any changes of information. Char-Lu's research is showing that the parentage of 'our' Robert Tacon is questionable ..... and I may have to change the Tacon Family Genealogy to include her new information at some point in the future. This is the nature of Genealogy ..... changeable, confusing, unpredictable and sometimes unexplainable. I have relied upon information suppled from various sources, many unconfirmed which naturally means I have to be very flexible with excepting the changes. Thank you Char-Lu for keeping me informed. A link to Char-Lu's web-site can be found at LINKS & CONTACTS.
- SHELLY BLACKLEY ... Thank you for providing the additional photograph of Robert Wilton's son's at the 1902 funeral of Elijah. Thank you also for detailing the names for me. Your help is greatly appreciated. There is also a photograph that has been 'doctored' to include Elijah and Robert.

Ada has kindly sent me a copy of her book 'Beyond the Dimm Horizon' and hopes it will help me with information on the 'Caird' families. Thank you Ada.
- DEBBIE & JACK LINDSAY ..... Thank you for sharing your wonderful photograph's of your Lindsay Family. Looking at the photograph of young Harry Lindsay makes you realize the sad lose of young life that 'our' families had to bare during the great wars. To see a photograph of him really hits home that he was not just a name on a family tree but a handsome young man - a son and a brother. I am proud to have his picture grace my pages.
