Lucas Family origins Muswellbrook NSW Australia
« on: Friday 30 August 13 11:01 BST (UK) »
Hi Forum,
I am seeking more info on my Grandmother Emmie Bury (ne Lucas).
She was born in 1899 - Muswellbrook, NSW Australia and married George Albert Bury in 1924, in the same town I believe.
At the time of her eldest child's birth she and husband were living on Cabramatta Road Mosman at around 1927.

It seems the Lucas family are 'A Nation Within A Nation' according to my limited research..
However I would like to be able to source Emmie's immediate family - parents - siblings etc., and start from there.
Thanks all!
Sharyn. :)

Re: Lucas Family - Muswellbrook -Search;
Thank you all so much!
Emmie has so many descendants that have no idea of these vital family connections - much appreciated.

Still not able to get beyond name and detail entry to 'historical indexes' on NSW BDM site?
13987/1872 - Dinah Neilson - my Great Great Great Grandmother - then Dinah Nina Lucas (deceased 17890/1947)- what is the connection then to Charles and Nina @ Chatswood then, do you think?

Big thanks to all again!
Sharyn.

Chatswood is the district her death was registered and burial in Northern Suburbs Cemetery (Sydney). Dinah Nina LUCAS (nee NEILSON) birth was registered Muswellbrook and death registered Chatswood (which is a suburb of Sydney). Maybe Dinah Nina LUCAS was living/visiting children in Sydney when she died on 12 Sept 1947.
Some details at the time of death eg parents names, date/place of birth, names/ages of children, spouse, etc are provided by an informant upon death, so may not always be known/accurate.
 
To get more detailed information you need to purchase certificates ($31) or transcriptions $19-$20 same information but cheaper and can be sent by email http://www.bdm.nsw.gov.au/bdm_fh.html#transcription

cheers :)
