My birth mother, Catherine Alfreda Ritchie and my father was Albert Alfred Freebody They Married in Bathurst NSW and lived in Lithgow where I was born. They both divorce after having 6 children of which I was the youngest and both remarried She to Gordon Taylor with whom she had two further daughters and he to Katharine Waring with whom he had six further children the oldest of which is 3 months older than I am. I am really seeking further knowledge of my Maternal line as I have gone back quite a long way on my Paternal line. My mother was born in Linlithgow in 1914.
