    Margaret was registered with surname Rack, no e in 1886. This is looking a possibility

    Anc have a hint of a F Rack on the NSW unassisted immigrant passenger list
    1826-1922.
    I do not have a world sub so cannot see if it could be your Fred/Laurence

    Hi there,
    I am trying to trace Urbain Rack but can not find any records of his parents/family except that he was born in Bavaria. Family line I'm trying to research is from his son Granville who married Laura Jane Henwood. Ancestry.com has no records - like he just appeared when he arrived in the UK. Any ideas how to get any records? Thank you

    Here's the FamilySearch wiki page on Bavaria. The research links are toward the bottom:

    I have the email address of a descendant in South Africa. I owe her loads of emails but my IPad, thanks to a kind ‘helper’ was playing up. She also sent some photos. She was looking for any New Zealand family.
    Let me know and I will pass on her address through conversations here.
    I also have photos of family graves here. One being that of Cecil Granville and another of Ernest his brother.

    That would be amazing! Thank you so much. Granville moved to NZ with his wife and had a son called Gladwyn Rack. He went on to have 8 kids. When we started this we had no idea where the Rack name came from. So interesting thats for sure.

    Thank you for the welcome! I will go and search through this link - initially nothing came up re Urbain but I did only have a limited time to look. Thank you very much!

    Would you mind letting me have your email address and I can send you her email and also the Cemetery photos I have taken. Simply go to your user name, click on conversations to leave your email for me. I will send them just as soon as I get that info. Off to bed shortly though.
    Also there is another thread here somewhere headed Ernest Rack. I’ll search for the link.
