If you know of any Footmans' in Australia I'd appreciate the help as I'm having a tough going of it to get records re India. I know that some Footmans went to Australia but have yet to find who, how or when. My mother is still alive and living in London England, my father died in 1966, and I am living in Canada. If I can give you any more help, let me know. Good luck with your search, Juin

(I was researching Footman and have got a copy of the marriage record for Edgar George Footman and Estelle Nipps. If you're interested in a copy I'll try and scan it and send an attachment.)
