Hi,
Just checked Qld BDM

John died 21-05-1964
Mother: Athena Maverotis
Father/parent: Theo

He could be a grandson of Anthony's cousin?  I need to look further.
Thank you  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

Europe / Looking for birth Information from Greece
« on: Friday 25 February 22 09:20 GMT (UK)  »
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

Hi All.

Forfarian, I agree with you about Ratho being the best possible place for the  Ruthin entry .
  In Airdie and Edinburugh. it on close examination It almost looks like Rath... So this looks very likely. where Isabella/Elizabeth was born. 

Thankyou also for the map it is very helpful.

Jonn, Yes. they did have a baby girl who died. It is recorded on a document from Australia.

I wonder if Holytown has a record of that burial.  Perhaps Scotlands People may.

Essnell.

HI Forfarian,

Thank you so much for the information re Ruthin.   Some research is needed.

I would have thought they would have been not far from Airdie. It had me stumped.  Any clues on where Ironstone was mined? please.. 

Thank you again
Regards  Essnell

Hi RonaArm, 
The time on your post is 03.08 , surely you are not up as 3am..  Well it happens here too. I am in Australia and it is 10 mins to 2 o'clock pm. 

Can I ask you to wait 24hrs whilst I get all the info out.  I have a sneaking suspicion that Elizabeth Beveridge came from England but I won't confirm that till I check. 

You can also PM me - you have enough posts.   Just click on the icon under my name.

Regards Essnell.

Hi RonaArm, 

Found the place not in Scotland but it looks like it is in Wales from the names of the places.

try this link
    https://www.genuki.org.uk/big/wal/DEN/Ruthin 

This is what it says:    There is also a map.



"A borough, a market and assize town, a parish, and the head of a poor-law union, in the hundred of Ruthin, county of Denbigh; 8 miles (SE by S) from Denbigh, and 210 miles (NW by W) from London. ..... This parish and that of Llanrhud, which were originally one, are bounded on the south by the parish of Llanfair, east by the same and that of Llanarmon yn Ial, west by Llanfwrog, and north by Llanbedr. ..... The surface is beautifully diversified, the eastern part of Llanrhud embracing a portion of the Clwydian hills, and the western part of Ruthin the meanderings of the river Clwyd, with the fertile and luxuriant meadows on its banks. ..... The agricultural produce is equally rich and abundant, yielding fine crops of wheat, barley, oats, potatoes, and turnips, together with grass and hay." [A Topographical Dictionary of Wales, 1833 & 1849, Samuel Lewis]

The ancient parish of Ruthin contained the two townships of Cae'rfallen and Tre'rcastell. "

It seems to be the only place in the UK  and if that is where Elizabeth was born  there might be a UK birth record.

I shall look that up and come back later.
