Australia / Josephine Ruane Death
« on: Thursday 25 January 18 21:14 GMT (UK)  »
Morning,

I have been asked to find a friend's grandmothers death that has puzzled the family for decades.

What do I know about her?

Her name was Josephine RUANE and she was born was born in 1883 to MATHEW and MARIA in LISMORE   (NSW BDM Cert 29583/1883 )

She got married in 1906 to John G GIESE  in CASINO (NSW BDM Cert. 6910/1906 )

Josephine and John had multiple children..........and then she disappears......well at least from NSW records.

I can't locate a remarriage, a death or a cemetery record, and Ancestry is not very forthcoming either!

Not sure if she travelled over the border and is hidden in the QLD or other records........but I would love to get a death date and hopefully cemetery location for Josephine.

Cheers

Hi,

This is the only photo our family has of William Shepherd with his wife Julia, and I am hoping someone, with better photo restoration skills than I have, is able to restore it.

Cheers

Australia / O'Donnell, William
« on: Monday 16 May 16 03:38 BST (UK)  »
Hi everyone.

I am stumped. I have an ancestor of hubby's that I am tracing. He is William O'Donnell or McDonald or McDonnell.
I have a tentative birthday (from a fellow genie) of 1736, which doesn't gel with his death record in 1838 which lists his age as being in his 80's.
He came out on the Suprize (which sailed in 1790) according to the Muster records, but I can't find him listed in any of the documents I have found and was freed by his length of servitude so I suspect he was sentenced to life.
 He was also granted land in the Hunter Area, around Hinton.
I can glean lots of information about his life in the Hunter........who he married, the kids, the land deeds, his argument with a fellow land owner etc.

What is stumping me is his transportation, his sentence, his crime, his arrival etc.

Any clues???

Cheers

Europe / Danish Birth Lookup Hans Peter Marteen PHILIPP born 1857
« on: Sunday 24 January 16 02:15 GMT (UK)  »
I have been asked, by a friend who has a Great Grandfather who was born in Denmark, to see if I can locate his parents. He had moved to Australia by 1899 and was living in Waratah, Tasmania.

The information I have is
Hans Peter Marteen PHILIPP (variously spelled as Martine/Martin, and PHILLIPP/PHILLIPPE and other variations) and he was born in Denmark in 1857.

I have no idea where to start and I don't speak Danish.

Can anyone either point me in the right direction, or do a lookup for me please.

Many thanks in anticipation.

Cheers

Australia / HUTTON, John

Hi,
Long time since I have been here! :D
I am stumped.......can't find my granddad (and yes, he is dead) in the NSW Electoral rolls around 1911-1915 prior to him going off to war.

His full name was John Thomas Hutton (not the Inverell John Thomas who is his father) and he was also known as Jack.

He was a jockey so probably lived around Randwick and I believe he was living with Hilda Louise Williams.

Would love to solve this one.

Thanks
