Australian and South African contacts
Gregg Redford Saturday 25th February 2006
The last month has provided two interesting contacts:
One from Australia and the other from South Africa.

From South Africa, a descendant of Thomas Dickson Hall (Lord of the Manor of Whatton from 1840 until his death in 1879) has given us the opportunity to view a set of photographs of the Manor and Family taken in about 1880. More about those photographs later.

The Australian contact was asking about an individual who was born in Aslockton, but served with the Australian army in the Gallipoli campaign. We were able to identify relatives who are still living in Aslockton.

Both contacts will prove mutually beneficial,
