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.

I’m looking for my long lost brother. My late father Ramon was a US Merchant Marine who while on a stopover in Melbourne had a brief fling with a young Kiwi native living in that city. When he returned to Australia she presented him with his son and my father said his appearance to him was uncanny. My father was born in Puerto Rico in 1926 (he died in September 2016) and he told me that child should have curly, Latino features. I have been to Oz twice and want to return soon especially if I can find my brother. I will require a DNA test to confirm relationship and if my brother if interested in obtaining US citizenship/passport I will be happy to stop by US embassy or consulate to validate his claim.

My father always wanted to see him again but never did. He was born circa 1948-1956 in Victoria. I would love to meet him. I live in Toronto, Canada.
