Australia Lookups completed / Re: MINERS Elsie Mary Death or other
« on: Friday 28 September 12 10:20 BST (UK)  »
There is a marriage for a James MINERS to a Sarah J POPE registered Broken Hill in 1893.  #2540.   It is likely that the NSW BDM records for that marriage will only be a summary, and as such it is likely their records will not include details of any prior marriage for either the bride or the groom, nor will it include the details of their parentages, occupations of their fathers, nor their own ages, nor even their birth places.

BUT here is a thread I did up to help overcome those hurdles.   It is of course sensible to have an official transcript of the marriage to help with that research.

Cheers,  JM
Thank you yes that is her parents, I agree with your advice re certs etc but with a data base of over 6000 it is just imposible to do, I do get certs for closer members, but these are 4th 5th cousins, getting close to my present cut off point. Thanks again

Father James  Mother Sarah J
District Broken Hill
MINERS      Elsie Mary   1975

Cremated 1 Jan 1975 at Centennial Park


Thank you Cando, that will be her I didn't think the NSW death place was correct, some how I have all these people dying in Sutherland and when I dig further they didn't die in Sutherland at all, a lot of what I am doing at present is checking information I have got from other people, a big job but needs doing. Thanks again

I am looking for Stanley GEORGE Birth, NSW BMD list his father as Eden and mother as Ada in the death listing, The Ryerson Index has GEORGE Stanley Death notice 05AUG1980 Death   Sydney Morning Herald 07AUG1980, but how do I find this in the SMH I tried their search page with no luck, I really just want a birth year for him and thought age at death would be a start.  ???
I have no idea when or where he was born he married Doris Croxon in NSW 18 Apr 1928

Perhaps Harold moved to SA post 1949 or even before.  An electoral roll listing does not guarantee that the person was actually at that address in that year.   It is possible he may have left Valerie any time between 1943 and 1949.  SA electoral rolls are not on Ancestry. Not all SA rolls survive.  I have a three rolls but not for the years you are seeking information.

I now have Valerie's Death thanks to Wivenhoe.
And Harold's as well :) yep forgot that ;-)

I was unaware that SA rolls were not on Ancestry, I have not done much in SA, most of my research is NZ and England with a few in Aus Thank you for your time and help
Cheers Jen

Australian Electoral Roll
NSW 1937
HAMON, Harold Croxson  HMAS Australia, C/-GPO Sydney  Operator
HAMON Valerie Fairbairn  1066 Rocky Pt Road, Kogarah  HD
HAMON Harold Croxson  Somers  Storekeeper
HAMON Valerie Fairbairn  Somers  HD

HAMON Harold Croxson  17 Birdwood Street, Frankston  Storekeeper
HAMON Valerie Fairbairn  17 Birdwood Street, Frankston  HD

Did he use the surname HAYNES or has there been some confusion at the time of registering his death.  Perhaps they weren't married.    I would also approach the Port Pirie council for clarification of their cemetery records.


I have Valerie at this address until 1977 but no Harold after 1949 I can't find him at all after 1949, I have the Australian Electoral Rolls on Ancestry. I now have Valerie's Death thanks to Wivenhoe.
Thanks for all your help Jen

Where does your reference to Harold d. South Australia ~ 1975  come from?
Information was sent by another family member, no reference, so I am trying to check it, I would call this person a unreliable source
