Working to discover the genealogy of the Benjamin Orames family, some information was received several years ago from Barry Jones (The Honourable Barry Jones, AC FAA FAHA FACE FRSA - Australia Minister for Science). This page represents a summary of what was shared then, and some additional documents which have surfaced are portrayed here as well. Clicking on the thumbnails will reveal the larger document or picture.

If you have questions I will be happy to try and get an answer for you. Although I am responsible for the creation of these pages, the content has survived due to the safekeeping of my parents Frank Moss and Ruth Moss (nee Orames), and David Orames. They are the ones who deserve the round of applause... John B. Moss

Notice: The images are all viewed in popup windows. Some are greater than screen size, but can be resized by placing your cursor on the upper-right corner and dragging the mouse down and to the left. These can be printed (when first viewed the popup is 'active') by pressing 'Ctrl-P'. Note, however, that the size of the document in the printer will limit the ability to print large documents.
