Ermar, thank you for your advice. I have already incorporated some of your suggestions. I have had to make enquiries with officials in the old country as have lost important documents during Cyclone Tracy in 1974 and my parents (deceased) have left me very little of our families history. So far I have had reasonable success with the authorities in Germany and I am piecing my early childhood together. In some cases the Internet is a great help as it lets me find additional contacts in a matter of minutes.
If anyone out there could guide me to a free program for my laptop so I can actually write in book form it would make it easier to arrange pages and illustrations. I am an old age pensioner and am not able to spend a great deal of money on these things. Cheers and thank you.
