From on Friday, 27 January 2012
Elizabeth
I've just had a look at you page for Louisa Sarah Nash who married William Stinton because one of the Stinton family married into the Staley family, I believe that there may be an error as I think that William came to Victoria in 1854 as a toddler on the Joshua, they were Assisted Passengers, I've had a few emails from Stinton descendants recently, this got me going again, William's parents are William Mack Stinton and Harriet Kemp, they are incorrectly indexed on the PROV site but still come up with a Stinton search.

Elizabeth
I think I have been in touch with you before, but yet again your site is just so valuable to family history researchers. I thank you. I found on your site my "Grimmer" family. I am a descendant of Charles Grimmer and Elizabeth Lee.
Thank you once again, keep up the good work especially for novice genealogists like myself.
