Gloucestershire Lookup Requests / Reuben Probert
« on: Saturday 28 April 12 13:46 BST (UK)  »
I'm looking for info on Reuben Probert b. around 1836-7. I know he married Mary Ann and emigrated to Australia (Queensland) around 1883-4. Who were his parents?  I'm trying to find a link, probably in UK, between the Proberts in Q'land and those in Tasmania whose ancestry I do know.
Thanks, Kate

Australia / Probert family in Queensland
« on: Friday 27 April 12 17:12 BST (UK)  »
While researching Proberts of Tasmania, I have come across a connection to a family in Queensland. The earliest record I can find is 1903 electoral roll Frederick William Probert and Ernest James Probert.  Can anyone tell me whether they were born there or emigrated from UK - probably Wales as it's Welsh name. I've also found Francis Edward Probert and Alex Alber Probert. Any help at all would be much appreciated.
Thanks, Kate

Radnorshire / search by place name
« on: Tuesday 15 February 11 13:16 GMT (UK)  »
Is it possible to search censuses for place names instead of people names?
   My ancestors lived at Cwmemlew, Disserth but both died in 1870s when their children were too young to take over the farm.  I am interested to find out who took over the running of the farm at Cwmemlew.

Thanks, Kathryn

Radnorshire / David Price/Mabel Probert

Can anyone supply any info on David Thomas Price who married Mabel Probert in 1919? Where were he and his family from and did he re-marry following Mabel's death in 1920?

Many thanks, Kathryn

United States of America / San Quentin prison
« on: Sunday 24 October 10 18:30 BST (UK)  »
I have recently discovered that a distant relative was in San Quentin prison in 1917.  Does anyone know of prison records that would enable me to find out what crime he had committed and what his sentence was?

Thanks, Kathryn

US Lookup Requests / griffiths family, california
« on: Thursday 22 July 10 13:15 BST (UK)  »
Can anyone shed some light on Albert T Griffiths b.1890 in California.  His mother was Henrietta Beamon Price, but I know nothing about her husband or when they emigrated to USA.  In 1891 Henrietta and Albert were in England, possibly on a visit as I cannot find them on later censuses.  Did they return to California? Were there other siblings?
Many thanks, Kathryn

Australia / Thomas PROBERT
« on: Thursday 18 February 10 12:49 GMT (UK)  »
I have only just learned that an ancestor Thomas Probert emigrated to Australia at end of the 19th century.  He was born in 1867 in Disserth, Radnorshire, Wales and spent part of his childhood in an Orphanage in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire.  I don't know where he ended up - possibly Tasmania?  Any help you can give would be very much appreciated.

I have just learned that my great uncle Edward Thomas Embrey emigrated to Canada on board s.s. Minnedosa in June 1919, sailing from Liverpool to Quebec.  Can anyone help with info on what happened to him thereafter?
His brother William had emigrated in 1903 and lived first in Alberta and later in B.C.
Thanks, Kathryn
