The Common Room / Visiting Birmingham area and Dublin
« on: Friday 20 September 19 06:34 BST (UK)  »
Hi all,
I'm leaving the land of Oz and popping over to see my son in Walsall next month.
I will be free Monday 21st Oct late afternoon/evening.
All day 28th and 29th if anyone wants to meet up.

I'm taking a few days to go to Dublin.
Arrive at airport 9.10am and will be free until check in time of 2.30.
Although I have booked to go to the Irish Immigration Museum that day and the Leprechaun at 5pm.
The only other time I'm free is Friday 25th but booked to go to the Guinness Storehouse Tour.  Not sure if there's a specific time for that but looking at the will be free all morning.

If anyone wants to meet up for a coffee or something, that would be great.

Australia / Elsie Vera Winifred GRANT
« on: Saturday 21 April 18 11:34 BST (UK)  »
Hi all,

I'm trying to fill some gaps in my Mum's birth mother's information.

Elsie Vera Winifred GRANT was b. 23 Oct 1905 at Somerville, Frankston, Victoria.
She had a liaison with Clive Richard GOLDSWORTHY and my Mum was the result.
The story is that Elsie tried to keep my Mum but just couldn't and ended up having her adopted out.  However, so saying that, Clive's mother, Harriet Kate GOLDSWORTHY (nee CROSS) came down from country Victoria and adopted her.  I have all that paperwork.

What I'm seeking is Electoral Roll/s information.

In 1935 she married William Ephraim James HEYWOOD and they had a son named James.
Another son, Kenneth Walter apparently died prior to 1962 from drowning -> possible in the Murray River.

I'm trying to find info on James and Kenneth.

Elsie passed away on 16 September 1962.

I have seen the following on Google...
JG Mackintosh - WorldConnect -

but I don't have ancestry to connect with this person.

If anyone can help, I'd be greatly appreciative.

Australia / Isobell EDMONDSON
« on: Saturday 17 June 17 14:11 BST (UK)  »
Hoping someone can help me.

According to information given to me years ago by my cousin (all stuff is packed so can't check)....
Isobell Baxter was born in Scotland and married George Downey EDMONDSON.

She apparently died in Forest Creek (which is now Castlemaine area) and I can't find her burial.

I've also looked on Vic BDM's and can't find her death.  It supposedly happened 8 June 1852.

Nothing in Trove either.

Hoping to go one more step back on her line.

If anyone can help, I'd greatly appreciate it.

Was he baptised?

Does farmer mean just growing stuff or was it horses or something he was into?
Anything would be helpful.

Hi all,

Am looking for an Edward Hooper (possibly recorded as EWJ Hooper).
According to his military records, he was a french polisher when he joined in 1945.
He would've been living at Montmorency at the time.

United States of America / New York
« on: Wednesday 18 January 17 10:27 GMT (UK)  »
I have a friend coming to New York in April.  She said she will pick up a marriage certificate and a birth certificate for me if she has time.

James McKEOWN b. abt. 1824 Co. Down, Ireland went to New York at some stage.
Jane MILLS b. abt. 1829 Co. Monahan, Ireland.  Dau. of James MILLS and Jane ?

James McKEOWN (pronounced McKewan) married Jane MILLS in New York abt. 1849.  I'm not sure if city or state.

Am looking for this marriage.

Also looking for the birth of their 1st child, Sarah Jane McKEOWN apparently December 1850.

James and Jane had 2 other children in USA.  Sophia Mills McKEOWN b. abt. 1851 NY and James (junior) b. 1854 Boston.

The family departed New York 11 May 1855 aboard the "Ocean Steed"
Arrived Melbourne, Australia 25 August 1855

Looking for the birth of Sarah Jane in the hopes of getting the certificate but wouldn't mind confirming births of her siblings.
