Lina Singh is my Great-grandfather and was the father of my Nanna Minnie May Singh. He married Amelia Ruth Cooke in 1910 Perth Western Australia. He has many descendants. He was born in India.
I believe the Stafford side of my family may have some connection to the cameleers (they are of Aboriginal heritage) – where would I be likely to find this information? The Staffords are from Coonabarrabran and other parts of country NSW. If anyone can help let me know. My grandfather always wore a camel brooch unfortunately I never met him as he had passed away prior to my birth.
