    Hi Anthony, So, we could be half-brothers eh? Cool! Was your mum's maiden name Hilliard? Did she marry Michael in 1988? If so then you've got a sister called Sally right? Email me - enzyme1972@gmail.com or find me on Facebook - Alan Veale-Clark. I very much look forward to hearing from you...

    Looking for my Grandparents - Where to begin?

    Thank you Julie! Yes it does! The info I've found so far just creates more questions. I think I'm going to have to swallow my pride and go see my dad; see if I can get him to talk about his past.

    Looking for my Grandparents - Where to begin?

    Well, my sister popped in, took one look at the photo and said she was 99% certain it was him! She's going to dig out some old photos and drop them round for me later so that we can compare. She was able to give me a bit more detail too. Apparently dad was orphaned either at birth or when he...

    Looking for my Grandparents - Where to begin?

    That doesn't bring anything up either. Thinking back on what mum told us, she was originally travelling to Sydney, but when the boat docked in Perth, she decided to stay there instead. A few months later immigration officials from Sydney came looking for her as they wondered why she hadn't...

    Looking for my Grandparents - Where to begin?

    Steve: Thanks for the support! Julie: I've just searched through the Australian National Archive and I think I've found him - I just need my sister to come round and check out his passport photo from back then. If it is, then I've found the people I'm looking for, as it has his mother and...

    Looking for my Grandparents - Where to begin?

    Australian wedding certificate - yes, I hadn't thought about that. That could be a possibility. I don't really have too much info at all as to where he went after he split from my mother, but I know the next time we heard from him, which might have been around '74 - '77 he was living in...

    Looking for my Grandparents - Where to begin?

    Julie, Yeah, I found that link earlier, but unfortunately without knowing where in Austria my father was born, it'll be like looking for a needle in a haystack! I have found a site for the Austrian National Archive and a couple of other resources which I need to check out properly, but I feel...

    Looking for my Grandparents - Where to begin?

    Hi Julie, Thanks for that. Yes, that could very well be him indeed!! The date for him entering Australia seems to fit and we were always told that he was Yugoslavian (even though my birth certificate states he was born in Austria). So where do I go from here? Who do I need to contact in...

    Looking for my Grandparents - Where to begin?

    Hey everyone. I need some help. I'm trying to find out about my Grandparents on my father's side, but I really have no idea where to begin. The only information I really have about my father is his name, Michael (Mikhail?) Blazekovic and that he was born in Austria (although we were always...
