My name was Elizabeth Saywell born in Grafton NSW.

Hello all,
I stumbled onto this website by chance. I am the keeper of the Scherf family tree as my wife is a Scherf descendant. Most of the research was originally done by Doug Peterson (descendant of Alvina Scherf) who passed the baton to me in 2000. We now have an extensive family tree on which is available to family members. Entry is through application to me from the website. Some of the questions above can be answered with information we have. Happy to receive inquiries.
