  13. Hello from Melbourne

    My family roots on my father's side (Warne) are in the Devon/Cornwall border area around Tavistock and Mary Tavy and on my mother's side (Lancaster) from the Yorkshire Dales (Howgill and Paythorne). The Warnes emigrated to Australia around 1869 and the Lancasters in 1860.
