Hi I'm newby

Shepparton, Victoria
Hi all, my name is Ted from Shepparton in Australia. Have been to the UK on 6 occassion's for the first 4 to gather info on my past family who came from Lincolnshire.:) I Have been doing family research for over 15 years and have successfully published back in 2008. I am seeking a little bit of info in regard to a book call "The Somerset Years", the story of Migrants from Sumerset to Australia. I cannot get hold of this book unless I travel to Melbourne some 200 KM away. I am looking for some info on my 3 times Grandparents David & Lavina Adams. They were married at Temple Church Bristol on the 15 June 1852 and shortly after migrated to Geelong/Melbourne. If anyone has this book, could you advise if their was any reference to these people? Lavina maiden name "Shepstone" from a villiage called Rowberrow. Would be happy to hear from anyone, I am interested in the ship's name they came over on and an approx date?:biggrin:
