Thank you Anthony and KGarrad .
   It might be worth getting the three - these two and the siblings with the MMN spelt differently. 

I need this as accurate a possible as its part of a DNA Puzzle.

Would the downloadable ones be good enough for this?

Thanks again

The Common Room / Occasional Copy
« on: Wednesday 23 March 22 08:05 GMT (UK)  »
Hi ,
I know this has been explained previously but I don't recall where or what it implies. 

So would someone be kind enough to say it again please.

Two birth records for the same child. Everything is identical except the page number which is consecutive.   ie page 228  & 229 - the only difference to a siblings entry is the spelling of the mother's maiden name. That is quite on the cards. However the second copy is  marked "Occasional Copy A".  This is on GRO search.

What does this imply please .

Hi Everyone,

I shall definitely let you all know the results.  The wiki on FamilySearch says that it may take quite some time ... like up to 6 months as these places are small but busy and the clerk has to be directed to do the search or it might not get done.  Also  they ask for cash payment to be enclosed in US Dollars or Euros.   
Apparently the process involves actually searching for the documents in the local municipal storage rooms. 


It's worth trying.  Before I do I will try to check just how recent the information is.

Cheers and stay safe.

Hi pb_devon,

Simply No!  I haven't. I didn't know they existed.  So thank you for those links ..

Now if they are in Greek I'm going to be stumped but we shall see. 
 
 This is what I was hoping someone might know about.

thanks again ...let you know what I find.

added after checking :
   The  Second link is amazing.  Found how to contact the Authorities in Greece and there are actual pre set form letters in Greek. 

Thank you so much once again.  :)

I shall tackle these tomorrow as it is nigh on midnight in this neck of the woods.

Essnell.

Hi
Thanks Garstonite.

Re Jack Andonara:   I have no idea. 

I will try to find his parents.  That might help.  Jack/John isn't Anthony's child. He never had any children.

I know Anthony had a cousin Cornellius  [Con] Andonara.  I suppose it was he who took charge when Anthony died as Anthony's wife was already deceased.

I am wondering if Andonara is an English  version of the Greek name.  I canot see anything like it on the searches. I also cannot see am immigration record.

Thankyou,     Essnell

Hello Everyone:
Just hoping that someone might be able to help.  My Grand Uncle by marriage came from an island in Greece. 
 I believe it was Cerigo, Greece also called Kythera /Kithira. From his Australian death record 1964, he was born about 1890.
Parents: Father:    Theodore Andonara
              Mother:   Mavamatis Gerefolia
Persons name: Anthony Theodore Andonara.

Where would I find birth records from this little island?
Any help or ideas would be much appreciated. 
Regards
Essnell

Hi Forfarian,

That is really good to know. Just what I wanted to know. It could also be why so many had this as a second name.. Maybe.

Thank you once again

Hi Everyone,
Thank you all for all your replies. All are very much appreciated.

I was thinking over this family and I have a small query.

Two of the males are called James "Dewar" Brown.
The name Dewar is alien to me so I am hoping someone might know if this is a usual First Name, Given Name  or a Second Name type used as a first name,  and where this name might have come from. - such as Scotland, Ireland etc...
Thanks again, 
Essnell
