Morning Judith and Gerry,

Judith, thanks for confirming 1913 was the correct date for Christian Mitchell DAVIDSON's death. When she was listed on 1914 electoral roll with her husband I thought  :o  what's going on here.  Her name was definitely Christain Mitchell as I purchased her marriage certificate from Scotlandspeople which stated her parents as John Roxburgh and Annabella Morrison.  Looks like the 1914 was an oversight and she had not been taken off.

Gerry, yes Mary Josephine was living with her parents for 1919 electoral roll whilst husband Alexander was overseas.  Once again I would be very interested to know the month the 1919 electoral roll was held- would tie up a few loose ends for me :)

Thanks for all your help
bye E

E,

I have found in Queensland that many of the Electoral Rolls on microfiche very often have the electoral roll date at the start of the subdivision heading.

Why not try the ask a librarian service with the State Library of Victoria to have a look for you.

Hi Gerry

Thanks for that suggestion, I will contact them now with a request. I also just sent an email to the Victorian Electoral Office, hopefully someone can advise me of the month it was held in 1919  ???

Hi Everyone

I've just rejoined and am interested in Alexander Henderson Davidson and Christian Morrison Roxburgh. 

Did they go to NZ first? 

And have daughters Annabella and Catherine?
