Re Colin, Betty & Ian - Qld. BMD won't give me any birth records. Index goes to 1922.

Kilner ruled out. Not Blackley, McLuckie, Hamilton, Gribble, Wylie, Ledlie, Marnane, Wriede or Mellefont.

I’ve a picture from my mum’s side of the family. We both agreed she looks like a niece of her’s, my 1st cousin, but still no nearer as to who she is.

Frustrating Julie. I had no interest when my grandmother was alive. She died aged 99 and could have told me heaps of stuff re north Qld. I only started after my mother passed away so again I missed a chance. My late father was from Sydney so he was no help re the Qld. photos. I now have no Qld. contacts.

I sent the photos to my sister who lives in Ireland.

Re the group in front of the car, my mother at left and the couple on right could be an aunt and uncle.

Re the group with the dog, my mother at left and Hilary at right. Hilary is not related.

Re Colin, Betty and Ian, as I worked out Colin and Ian Kilner. Betty is my mother and a cousin. I didn't pick that one.

Re the three daughters, as I worked out the only family with three daughters born one year apart was Blackley.

Janet the eldest at right is my grandmother.
Isabel didn't marry and Jessie the youngest is the mother of Colin and Ian Kilner.

So, which one is Isabel and which one Jessie?
