NSW marriage look up please
« on: Tuesday 23 February 10 12:51 GMT (UK) »
I am trying to find the marriage of Sylvia Lily YEMM to a groom with the surname PEARSON between 1959 and 1961.  I have searched for the marriage in the years 1949 to 1959 on the NSW bmd website without success
 (I know she was still with her first husband in 1949)

Sylvia Lily PEARSON appears in the NSW death indexes in 1961 (registered Marrickville) and her parent's names match the person I am looking for.  Sylvia's maiden surname was WHITE.

Thanks very much to anyone who can help

In New South Wales, marriages records post 1959 are not available.

Her death certificate would give details of her marriage.  You can purchase a transcription

Thanks very much for your reply and for the link to the transcription agents. I hadn't realised that service was available in Australia so thanks for saving me some money too!  I have now ordered a transcription of the death certificate

Hi, I spotted your post about Sylvia Lily YEMM. I am trying to find information about the children of George William White, who was a descendant of my great great grandfather. Is this the same lady you are researching? Do you have more details? Did she marry Howard Thomas yemm,  born in Leicestershire, England in 1891 and who served several prison sentences in WA during the 1920s? The marraige record said Edward Thomas Yenm, so I wasn't sure if it was the same lady.

Many thanks

Hi Sue, yes it is the same lady.  I'm having difficulty typing a reply to you on Roots Chat as the words keep running
off the edge of the page.  Are you able to email me and I can give you more details?

Hi Jamjar,

Thank you so much for all the extra information on Howard, Sylvia and Stanley - it is really helpful and very much
appreciated.  One thing I have never been able to find is a marriage for Stanley Pearson to Sylvia Yemm (nee White)
but if his earlier marriage to Frances Marrickville is correct then she was still living at the time.

Thanks too for your reminder about my email address - I should have sent it by private message and I have now removed it.
