Hi Elizabeth,
I was just looking at your Family tree and your Daniel Climas who was married to Christinna May Kennedy was my wife's Great Grandfather. Daniel Climas Roberts registered under Roberts was born 1870 in Victoria and died in 1919 aged 49 years old.
His son Walter Hamilton Climas was born 1897 in Bendigo Victoria and married Lucelle Isabella Gordon on the 22 August 1933
I wed their grand-dau who has the Climas family tree going back to about the 1600's.
