The Charlton RSL celebrates its centenary next year. As part of that event current members are trying to establish the identity of the original Committee Members.

I have attached a copy of the newspaper article from 1919 we are working from.
Some of the people I have been able to identify others not

President C Curnow (Clive William) 1891-1968
Vice President J Hedger (John Edward) 1895-1961
Secretary A Excell (Athol Frederick) 1897-
Treasurer H Peverill (Harold Joseph) 1887-1973
K Kennedy - could be William Kenneth Kennedy 1890-1962
H Sunderland - could be Henry Christian Sutherland
A J Barber ( Alfred James) c 1880-1941
J Bedford - who appears to be the shop owner where the meeting to establish the branch was held
R Reeves
A Jolly
C Clark

Would SKS with access to Electoral Rolls be able to see if these people were residing in the Charlton district in 1919?



Australia / Shipping Record "Windsor" in 1856
« on: Sunday 17 December 17 08:44 GMT (UK)  »
Hi All

I am doing some research for a cousin whose ancestor was Chinese National. According to one family report he arrived aboard the "Windsor " in 1856.

I would like to know where this ship docked and whether it was possible that this person was aboard. His Australian name was James Fong but I dont know if he emigrated using that name.

Thanking you in anticipation, Dale


These are a couple of great old photos of my maternal grandfather and his brother(s).
They are a bit worse for wear and I would be delighted if one of you very talented people could fix them just a bit.

Many thanks

I am wondering if anyone has access to the Gilgandra Weekly 1st November 2011.
I am looking for an obituary for my father's cousin Mary Ellen WESTCOTT which I believe is in that edition.

Unfortunately Ryerson has no lookup volunteers for that paper

Hoping someone can help or point me in the right direction

I have two Paterson Families that appear to be descended from the same couple but current family members dont think they're related. Both families came to and family members still reside in the Charlton (Victoria) area.

Here is what I have on the two

William Paterson born c 1825 died Charlton 1890 - parents given as John Paterson and Mary Strang
Death registered as PATTERSON but this incorrect Reg # 6419
William married Annie Francis in 1865 in Victoria

James Paterson born c 1830 died Charlton 1910 - parents given as John Paterson and Jessie Strang
Married Isabella Watson - there is a marriage between James Paterson and Isabella Stevenson in 1854, Victoria which could be them.

The indexes I have give no indication of where the two Patersons might have come from. Maybe to purchase Death and or Marriage certificates is the only way to work out if they are infact from the same parents

Any help appreciated
