 My mother Cecily Maud age 5.

My father Gerald Seymour age 6.

As you can see there is information on all sorts of things - including how long the marriage has lasted, how many children living & how many have died, how many rooms in the house & where the birthplace of every person was. You can see how the BECK family moved around London. 
The Yanchep Community Centre will be getting Find My Past so watch this space for when you will be able to trace your family.
