Still at CBD in 1943  roll, not not after that.

Looks likely she worked in the CBD, had long term accommodation there, but would have gone home when had spare days ... perhaps walked home.   Back in early 1970s I lived Annandale, in summer time, good walk from Kent St CBD to Johnson St Annandale, light breezes carrying sweet smells from the brewery...

Hi
what I was trying to say was Madge Riley died on 6/2/1954 and her partner Robert Hughes on 9/1/1960 I do not know much on the Hughes family?

Bev

That makes much better sense. 

What NSW  bdm certificates do you have for that George Hughes or that Robert  Hughes or for Madge Riley?

Hi there,

Some thoughts ....
 :) Apart from the limited info on the d.c. there can often be information held by the funeral director that could be followed up ....
- who paid for the funeral?
-  how are they connected to Frederic?
-  What information is in funeral directors file about either Frederic or his family or the person/organisation who paid the funeral expenses
-  Mt ISA council ... could they jstill  have  employee records back that far?  If So what info including .... a) date of birth,  b) contact details for "next of kin"   c) past employment history  d) name and address of any referees that he had nominated when applying for work

And .... perhaps a snail mail letter to the current Member of federal parliament representing the federal seat of Kennedy .... asking for his help in finding how Frederic arrived in Australia.  (Immigration being a federal government responsibility) ... This particular politician is a bit of a colourful figure, an independent, with decades of experience in both state and federal parliaments.

At all steps in Australia when following up at this depth,  people may ask "why do you  want to know" .... and often they make only a small token effort if you explain its  for family history....  in my experience, a better response is simply:

I am seeking information about my father and his origins as I need (avoid using 'want') to follow up to glean my / any  medical history for myself, my siblings and our children.

Handwriting Deciphering & Recognition / Re: understanding Roman numerals

M = 1000
D  =  500
C  =  100 ( so CC  is 2 x 100)
L  =     50
X =      10 (So XXX is 3 x 10)
V  =       5
I   =        1

1000 + 500 + 200 + 50 + 30 + 5 + 1  and that adds to 1786

Hi is g. xxx hughes brother r. Xxxz hughes

i think r. Xxxx was born 1960

he was going out with m.xxx  r.xxx

Bev,   four urgent questions  re these three people ....
1. When did that G.xxx die?
2. When did that R.xxxx die?
3.  What year was that  M. Xxx going out with him?
4.   When did that M.xxx  die?

You say R.xxxz was born in 1960.   It is against RootsChat rules for any of us to name living people in our posts.   So please answer these four questions or remove their names by modifying your post. 

This is very important.  You need to sort this out within 24 hours from when you posted asking if George was Robert's brother.   

JM.

Add ..... I have again read back over this thread .... So many questions asked, but never answered.   But .... this is first mention for G.xxx  ..... or for a person born as recently as 1960 or for info about someone going out with a person  born 1960 .... to me, 'going out with"  would be pointing to teenagers dating,  so 1960s  plus about  18 years brings these events into the late 1970s and early 1980s  .....   all three of these people are likely to be still alive . .....

I will use R2M button to alert my concerns to our GM.
