    I am interested in Ada Halliday this page you have
    do you know anything about Ada’s Aboriginal decent?
    maybe we are very distant relations –
    Henry Cramp (illegitimate b. 14.4.1816 Liecestershire UK d.29.12.1884 Hobart, Tasmania married 9.8.1847 to Sophia Parsons)
    John Alfred Cramp
    Henry John Cramp ( my great grandfather)
    Frederick Cramp (my grandfather)
    Christine Roslyn Cramp (my mother)
    looking fwd to hearing from you.
    kind regards

  2. Ross,
    What I have on the page is all that I know about Ada Halliday. The people that I know of with aboriginal parentage on my site are in a different part of the tree.
