Surname CORNER
« on: Thursday 04 April 13 09:58 BST (UK) »
Helping in my Senior Citizens Genealogy Club again, the name Robert Henry Corner has been presented. I can find a NSW Birth with a Registration starting with the letter D .
D191103907/1911   Robert H Corner

* This person was adopted
* What does the D signify
* Any other help with this family ( Robert Henry Corner born 1911)
* Adopted parents married in Qld 1902 (Robert Henry Corner & Catherine McNamara

* Has the baby taken the adoptive father's name ?

* The enquirer is the daughter of the Robert born 1911. She is still looking for her past after 102 years.

Can anyone help ??

Thanks

Hi,

I think "D" is for "Declarations" .... as in :
http://www.bdm.nsw.gov.au/familyHistory/historyofRegistrysRec.htm#Declarations

"Declarations were indexed along with normal registrations in the year the birth occurred, although there are some instances when the index entry appears in the year the declaration was made without any cross reference to the year of birth. Over 4,000 Declarations are held by the Registry. Unfortunately, some contain little information about events."

Cheers,  JM
