Comment on Win Your DNA Journey With Momondo by Imelda Bartolome http://www.gouldgenealogy.com/2016/06/win-dna-journey-momondo/#comment-975135 Wed, 21 Sep 2016 13:41:56 +0000 http://www.gouldgenealogy.com/?p=19635#comment-975135 Hi, my dad is Philipino-Spanish and mum is a Tamilan. Both were born in Malaysia and me, too. People say I look Malay. Some say I look Tamil/ Indian. Some even say that I look Portugese and a few have said that I have Spanish eyes. My only sibling, a younger sister looks more like dad – Philipino. But some say, she looks like a Turkish. It would sure be amazing to know what my DNA could reveal about me.

Comment on Global Search for Descendants of Berwick Families by John Didovich http://www.gouldgenealogy.com/2014/04/global-search-for-descendants-of-berwick-families/#comment-970793 Tue, 13 Sep 2016 13:00:47 +0000 http://www.gouldgenealogy.com/?p=15802#comment-970793 Hi
I have just come across this site and hope it is still running. My wife was born a Gregg, her father being born in Berwick. He is also Freeman of Berwick. I have traced their family back a few generationon s but would really like to find out more. Jack Gregg (my wife’s father) is 93 and still very interested in the history of the Greggs and Berwick. He has an old tome entitled ‘The Official History of Scotland’ printed about 1700. He now lives in Perth, Australia.

In your research, have you any more information on Gregg genealogy?

Sincerely

John Didovich

Comment on Highlight: Copper Brought them Here: Pioneers Buried at Kadina, Moonta and Wallaroo by Cheryl Haigh http://www.gouldgenealogy.com/2012/12/highlight-copper-brought-them-here-pioneers-buried-in-at-kadina-moonta-and-wallaroo/#comment-970516 Mon, 12 Sep 2016 17:32:24 +0000 http://www.gouldgenealogy.com/?p=11548#comment-970516 Hi, my great grandmother was Frances Woode. She married John Webb of Moonta. She was aparrantly born in the convent at Kadina on January 29th 1871. Her Mother Alice Woode (Nee, Pickthorn) died giving birth to her. Her father had sailed up the coast to drop off cargo and the ship sunk with him on it. The priest gave her to the Smith family of Kadina to raise. She married at 17. Her husband (my great grandfather) died of typhus on January 14th 1895 aged 26. He was the Moonta football captain. I would like to know about the Smith family who raised her and if there are any decendants still living who may know the story of my great grandmother. I somehow think she may have been left on the steps of the convent and the priest found her and gave her to the Smith family. Thankyou. Cheryl

Is there a philanthropist who is keen on genealogy, history and sociology who might leave a continuing legacy so that Trove might never be under threat ever again?

Given that the Platinum version costs more is it a better option?
