I am slightly reluctant to post this but my great-uncle when he died took a number of records, names places and stories with him. In saying that he did write a book and a few boxes of short stories on his and his extended families life and times.
He was even so kind to write on the back of his photographs names, dates and places (please get the senior family members to do the same to your family records it makes life for family researchers much, much simpler).
However there are three photographs which have me stumped, they were taken in the 1960’s, so potentially some people in these pictures could still be alive and I do not wish to upset or breach any privacy laws, but I do want to put names to faces.
They may even be photographs that this family may no longer have.
So can you help – the photographs are of the one family, the colour picture had written on the back “Jim Stanaway and family 1964”, the second had “Jim Stanaway and Family” and the third just had “Stanaway girls” – with may Jim’s and James’ and first and second names and the fact that some Stanaway’s just went by what ever random name they decided on (a Stanaway trait) I am stuck. (click on the picture to make larger).
My husband family are related to da Stanaways which go back from England. A family tree book was released 2 years ago I mite be able to contact you wif author.
