  1. Can you put me in touch with George Silk? I saw a photograph of him in Sept 2003 on your website, in front of an exhibition of his photographs at the Westport Arts Center. I think my mother, Sheila Nelmes Newton, met him once in the States – there is some family connection which I don’t quite understand and it would be great to hear from him.
    many thanks

  2. Hi Norman,

    I am George’s neice, have you heard from the family about the information you wanted? You can contact me and I may be able to help.

    Regards Jeanette

  3. Dear Jeanette

    I think you must be Lilian’s daughter?  I was terribly sad to read of George’s passing in the Adelaide Advertiser this morning.  Could you please convey our families deepest sympathy to Marge, Stuart, Georgiana and Shelley.  We all loved George, especially my Dad Bob Gilmore.  We are all thinking of the Silk family at this sad time and I will be writing to Marge.  Kindest regards Anna Lees (nee Gilmore)
