      Thanks Kevin.  I have used the site before but have found from talking to others that it's not very highly thought of.  Some people I've communicated with seem to think the information is not very accurate.  In spite of that I've found it very useful.
      Thanks again for your email.

      Hi Nancy

      I have a line of JOHNSTONs in Hobart.  My Sarah Eleanor was born 1841 and
      her parents were John and Maria(nee MATHER).  I'm wondering if my John could
      be the son of Archibald or Thomas.  I know John was a coachbuilder in Hobart
      but I have no other information. Do you know anything about the descendents
      of Archie or Tom?
