Australia / Re: Running out of ideas to find Henry ADAMS

Hi Hannah,
Thanks for getting in touch. It took me a while to find Christine's email address, as I haven't had any contact with her since 2011, but I found it. I'll contact her and ask her if it's ok for me to pass it on to you. It's been so long since I've been on this website I forget if it's possible to send a private message. If possible, can you send me one, maybe with your email address and I can pass it on?

Thanks Ruskie,
We've been in touch and plan to have a chat on the phone over the weekend. I can't believe after all these years, I've found someone on this branch of the tree! It's always exciting to make connections.
Thanks also to everyone who contributed information to this thread.

Hi Jen, I'm here! If someone could tell me the best way to contact privately, I'll message you. I'm amazed! Thank you for getting in touch! Tracey.

I've heard back from my cousin and she said her mother told her that Irene had died in 1999, and on another genealogy website someone has added that she passed away in a nursing home unbeknownst to her family. Very sad, but we'll keep looking. Thanks everyone for all your help.

Wow cupoflife, you've been busy! Thank you so much.

The distant cousin (Louise) that I'm working with is Gladys's grand daughter, she's got nothing more than me on this one. Good point about her sibling's death notices. I haven't looked there and I'm not sure if Louise has either. I'll go back to looking there.

Thanks again,

Thank you all again for giving up your time to help me with this problem. You've certainly given me lots of positive assistance, and yes JM, I think maybe we are assuming that Irene is deceased. I've messaged my cousin to ask how she found out Irene was deceased, I don't think we have concrete proof!
I've got to go now, the sun is shining here and is too precious to waste! I'll get back to solving the mystery tonight!
Thanks again.

Thanks everyone for your replies.

Cando, that's my previous thread. I'll check out the links that JM has posted re cemeteries. I don't think she could have been permanently institutionalised either.

Would it be improper of me to give her name here? I know she has no living siblings and her son has not been in contact with anyone who is left.

Thanks again,

Australia / 1999 Death

I have been trying to find information about a death that occurred in 1999. The person was my father's great aunt and she died in Sydney in 1999. She had a history of mental illness, never married and the only child she had was adopted out at the beginning of WW2 (cue the mental illness, according to family reports). She was admitted to Callum Park, again, don't know if it was a recurrent admission or a 'one off'. I have been able to find her on electoral rolls up until the 1970's.

Does anyone know if I might have any success applying to BDM for her death certificate? I don't know who her official next of kin would have been, but her siblings are all deceased now too.

Myself and a distant cousin think it's really sad that no-one knows anything about her, or where she's buried. We'd like to find her resting place and pay our respects. We realise we'll probably never find her son.

Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.
