Let me know if you can add more to their histories.
I was delighted to hear from Karen CUMPSTONE – Fred Cumpstone was her father-in-law. His father came out from Shewsbury in England to New Zealand. Her email address is firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks for writing Karen – I have responded to you with more information.
