Australia / Re: Elizabeth RENWICK

Did John and Elizabeth go to NZ?

Jamjar


As far as I know NO. I have had a go at trying to find them here. It seems like they were a ghost family. I definitely think originally John and Elizabeth went to Australia because of a better life and the goldfields were a good start. As I said in my earlier message I was told by family "rumours" that four of the children went to NZ and four stayed in Australia. I only found James because he was the father of Hubert McGovern who was born here in NZ and was the grandfather of my son in law who is a McGovern. I have done alright here in NZ re the family but the further I get back the harder it is  lol but that's genealogy and I love it.Another "family rumour" is that the sister of my son in law went back to Ireland and found some graves in Tipperary (Cork) and again I cant find anything on McGoverns in Tipperary. And again another rumour is that James was born at sea which if it was over half way don't the babies get registered as being born in the country they are going to. It has been suggested that maybe he wasn't even registered at all, but even if that is true surely there would still be info somewhere on his parents being in Australia. ??? ??? ???

Hi again, thank you for all your replies, to Jamjar, in answer to your query saying it would be nice to know who I thought she was. I am actually researching the name McGovern. John McGovern's wife was Elizabeth Renwick. I thought she was alone on the Marco Polo hence my asking about her, however I have now been told that John and Elizabeth both came to Australia from Ireland (possibly County cork in Tipperary). They had several children. I cannot find them anywhere in Australia. I do have info on one of their sons, James McGovern who says he was born in Geelong on his marriage cert. here in NZ and on his death cert it says Melbourne. His father was a miner so I guess he went to Australia for the goldfields. James was born 1862/3. He eventually came to NZ to our goldfields and at the age of 23 married a Mary Carr.

Getting back to John and Elizabeth McGovern (nee Renwick), Now I know that the Elizabeth I was initially asking about is not mine can I now be permitted to ask for John and Elizabeth and if anyone can find them. They were catholics. The years would be of course before 1863. Others who have helped me cant find them either.If John went for the goldfields the family would go with him to the goldfields yes??? I don't suppose there would be a database of miners obtaining licenses would there. Again thank you for any help or advice and thanks for all the other people who took the time to send me what they found.
P.S. I don't know the names of the other children but I do know that four came to NZ and four stayed in Australia.

Other info I have that might be of help or not is book 8 page 180.I am looking for more info on her if possible. Where from, who she might have married once in Australia etc. Any info at all will be very much appreciated. Thank you.

Okay for fear of sending you to scream into a pillow or tear your hair out, how do I buy a photocopy only of the death and how many credits will it take. I keep getting mixed up between Proni and Groni. Although I said I would wait till Nov. I do have the credits sitting there so may as well use them if I have enough. Thank you for your patience.   Popsit

Because of where I am getting a cert. is costly hence the hope someone here might have privy to info really close to what I am looking for that might give me a little thread to run with as credits are costly if you dont get the info you want straight away.

Thank you for your reply. I had originally purchased five credits and inadvertantly bought a "death enhanced view" leaving me with four credits. This view didn't tell me anything that I didn't already know. If I purchase another credit and get a copy of a death what am I likely to get from it apart from name, date of death, place,age.  All boiled down I would like to find out what nee name of the Mary in the Griffiths valuation was. I know deep down that this may never happen lol but I hang on to the theory that there might be something somewhere waiting for me to find it.Thats genealogy for you and I love it. Once again thank you for your time, much appreciated.

It doesnít really matter where you live. For events in Northern Ireland that are not yet free on the irishgenealogy site, you can view the original certificates on-line for £2.50 a time, on the GRONI site. Thatís not very expensive, and is the same price for you as we pay in Ireland.

The image of the cert should be online by Nov this year all going well on Irish Genealogy.
It may not have enough to tell if she is yours it depends on where she died and who the informant was.

Is the cert not available on PRONI?

The father will only be marked as deceased if the question was asked.

Thank you. The reason why I am here asking my query is because I had credits on the irish genealogy site where I got the enhanced view. Because of where I am getting a cert. is costly hence the hope someone here might have privy to info really close to what I am looking for that might give me a little thread to run with as credits are costly if you dont get the info you want straight away.Thank you however for your time in replying.
