"I'm not sure what the problem is: 1 Dec starts on page 882, 22 Dec starts on page 1088 => i.e that’s only 200 pages!"

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
