Australia / Re: How Oz are you?
« on: Thursday 24 February 22 00:45 GMT (UK)  »
When growing up as a child, I thought I was as Australian as you can get, going back loads of generations.  When beginning to work on my Paternal Family Tree I was shocked to learn my Grandfather was born in England and came here as a 14 year old. Making me a second generation Aussie on my father's side.

Then I did my Maternal Family Tree to discover I had a 4xGreat Grandfather who was transported on the David Collins Expedition in 1803 to Sorrento. He, then in Hobart Town, married the daughter of a First Fleeter who was assigned to Norfolk Island and re-located to Tasmania.

So, acknowledging full respect to the first Indigenous people, that gives me a link to the first Europeans to settle Australia.

Thanks Hillhurst, yes I have without success.  I was hoping it might make the news in a local Newspaper from Chelsea (or surrounds) as it's not everyday someone dies in the street.  And in those days every little incident was published in the Newspaper.

London and Middlesex / Newspaper Report for John Copeland
« on: Wednesday 29 December 21 23:59 GMT (UK)  »
My Great Grandfather John Copeland died 20 January 1913 at Cremorne Wharf, Lots Road, Chelsea. I assume he died while out walking as this location is close to his home in Tadema Road, Chelsea. His death Certificate says the cause of death is "Dilatation of the Heart" and "Syncope" which I think means he suffered a heart attack.  That's him in my Avitar.  :)

I was wondering if the event was reported in any local newspapers at the time, and if someone could look it up for me. Thanks.
