Hi I am seeing if I can find my brother that my parents are keeping secret from me. He is my father's son, from VIC, under 30 I think and maybe named Mathew. I have found child support paper work spanning over the 18 years for the child from my dad however no one will speak to me about it and it breaks my heart. I believe his mother maybe called Patricia but I'm not sure. Thanks for reading, I know it's vague!

Hi my name is Shirley. I have been working on my genealogy and would like to find my biological father. The last time I saw him was around 1975 or so. The name I know is Darrell Triffitt, or Triffett. Not quite sure of the correct spelling. He was in Papua New Guinea working at a town called Popondetta, and later moved to Port Moresby where I last saw him. My mother passed away 5 years ago, and did not leave much information about him. I don't know if he is still alive or have other children I would like to meet. I will be 48 years old this year and would like to reunite with him so my children can also complete their genealogy. Please contact me if you know of any information. My email is Ph # +675 7035 4029.

Hi im 29yrs old and i would love to find my dad's family. He died in 1994 aged 43. My mum was diagnosed with bipolar and had me and my brother taken from her care and raised by my aunty who has also passed away. My mum has remarried but dosnt have alot of memories to give us a clue of where to look. My father is originally from lebanon, he did have a sister that lived here apparently she had 2 sons, i had his death certificate which also named his place of birth and his parents names, his name was George saykali and he died in prince henry hospital alone.. he may have also had a previous family in canberra unsure of any other details. I had a picture so i do know what he looked like.. please, please, please help me find the other half of my family, it would complete a hole that has been missing since i could remember.

My mother Shirley Bailey had a “Love Child”. I’m trying to find my sibling my Mum would of been about 15-16 at the time so my sibling would of been born around 1962-1963 but the details are not clear. My Mum was in WA and she lived in Kalgoorlie/Boulder at the time. The details given was that she was taken away to have my sibling. I feel like it’s so important and even though I don’t have much to go on I know they are out there. Anyone that’s got any more ideas on what I’m meant to do or your story sounds similar, please contact me.
