About Dern Family Research
PLEASE NOTE: Firstly a huge thank you to everyone who has contacted me, with wonderful 
heartfelt get well messages, over the past eight years. After being on a Clinical Trial for my 
Melanoma for two 1/2 years, the GOOD NEWS is, as at 17 April 2015, scans show I am now tumour 
free, & am now off the trial. I now have to have 3 monthly CT follow up scans, but after my 
last visit this last week (February 2016), we are looking at 6 monthly scans. 
It looks like as of December 2017, I have come out of remission, after 3 good years. I have 
developed a mutation, & it is classed a new primary tumour, so it is back to square one. So I 
am now back on the trial, but now the drug is on the PBS I am able to have my treatment in 
Dubbo. Everyone at the Crown Princess Mary Cancer Center at Westmead Hospital, in Sydney, are a 
truly inspirational team, and I thank each and everyone one of them.  

ANGEL FLIGHT. An extraordinary group of pilots (Patrick, Margaret, Peter, Nick, Oleg, James, 
Peter and Darryl at Bankstown in Sydney, earth angels, Sevelay, Tony, Ken, Jim, Stephen, Maz, 
Elizabeth, Michael, Penny and Rebecca, and administrators, Karen, Nicky and Kylie, who are 
worth their weight in gold. I used this service, as I could not continue paying the cost of 
commercial flights from Dubbo. Anyone who is ill, needs specialist treatments of even just 
appointments in the cities, and who live in remote areas of the country, please don't hesitate 
to contact them. The more people who use the service the better, as the Pilots jump at the 
chance to add more flying hours. I would only have a short drive into Warren to catch the 
plane, my earth angel picks me up at Bankstown and drives me to the Westmead Hospital, and then 
the same for the return run home. When you are ill, you have enough to worry about, without 
financial worries on top of everything you are going through. If you wish to donate to a 
worthwhile charity, Angel Flight is very well deserving. 
In memory of my wonderful parents, Dave ROSE (a victim of James HARDIE Industries' "Evil Dust", 
as described in 1892) and Lorraine Shirley (BALL).
What began as curiosity about relatives often spoken about by my parents, grandparents and 
parent's-in-law, has expanded into the research that has grown to what it is today. So, in the 
bi-centennial year 1988 was when I began my family history research. 
My paternal research should really be of the BARNETT family, not the ROSE'S. My great great 
grandfather Henry BARNETT died in March 1854, when his wife Johanna (nee GOGGINS) was 3 months 
pregnant with her son Henry (my great grandfather). She married Thomas Nelson ROSE in May the 
same year and young Henry was subsequently raised as the son of Thomas & Johanna, and named 
Henry Barnett ROSE. At this stage, we know nothing at all of the original Henry BARNETT'S 
The Family History of my maternal grandparents Herbert Leslie BALL and Florence Melba WARD, has 
also been researched, as well as the families of both of my parent's-in-law, George and Betty 
DERN (nee PHILLIPS), also the families of my darling late daughter-in-law Jacki & wonderful to 
be late son-in-law Kevin John SAMUELS.
My family history research has expanded over the years, and has included the publication of two 
CD's of cemetery indexes, one for Queensland and the other for New South Wales, both aptly 
named DERN Index, as well as a Pioneer Register on the Outback New South Wales, as well as 
helping other researchers with their family history. 
Also in the works is a publication on the residents of the town of Blackall, my husbands home 
town. So included on the site are a lot of folk from that area, even though they are only 
connected very remotely, but still obviously connected through various marriages.
With both my children well and truly grown and living their own lives, as you can see, my 
family history research is my sanity. Please don't hesitate to contact me with any queries, add 
any new information or advise me of any errors in my research. And, please do feel free to sign 
my guest book.
Any guests I have given invitations to, who wish to copy any of my research for their own 
sites, would you mind asking for my permission. My only stipulation is that none of my research 
or photos is to go on to Ancestry. Remember to scroll down, on each persons file, to view 
sources and notes.
Over the years I have been in touch with many 'relies' and have been able to help them by 
adding new information for their research from my own resources & various online sites, and who 
have subsequently passed on their updated research, a huge thank you.
