Missing items on recently upgraded NAA site

To whoever in their ultimate wisdom decided to change too much on the NAA site, The current (more or less overnight) upgrade to the NAA site has left me with a few questions:It was only about 5 months ago when a question was asked re persistent links (http://forum.naa.gov.au/forum/topics/how-do-i-cite-a-url-to-a-specific-item-in-recordsearch).  I cannot believe that the NAA did not know…See More

Sylvia commented on Elizzbeth's blog post Florence Hunter
"1- It easy to assume things, but could you confirm Florence's religion (in case she had become a nun)? 2 - So she initially arrived in Sydney on the Baradine that sailed 1/2/1923: http://naa.gov.au/go.aspx?i=412509&f=29 And you suspect…"

"What information are you after as I assume that this gentleman (and his family as he arrives with a wife and a child) could still be alive so respect for privacy should be taken into consideration? Sylvia"

Hi Sylvia, many thanks for your information on Florence Hunter, her Father was Presbyterian, her Mother Catholic. Florence was raised Presbyterian, however family suspect she may have converted to Catholicism.
I have mistyped her 2nd time to Australia, if it is correct, it would have been 1948 aboard the Ormonde. I will try and pursue the probate information that you gave me, Florence appeared to have a moveable date of birth, she was born in 1902, however at times her birth year has been recorded as 1905 and once as 1909. Thank you so much
