Australia / Re: HAEUSLER Ferdinand 1819-1901
« on: Friday 15 July 22 07:16 BST (UK)  »
According to Reg Butler's "The Quiet Waters By: the Mount Pleasant District 1843-1993", Wilhelm HAEUSLER, born c1813 came to SA 1846 on ship PAULINE, with his wife, the former widow KLINGE nee SCHULZ and their children. Possibly, the family farmed near Blumberg, but moved to Tungkillo, on new farm land at Section 6416. Eventually the HAEUSLERS crossed to Victoria, where they settled near Wodonga. Sons Ferdinand & Gottlieb farmed at Tungkillo and on the Murray Flats, before also moving over the border. This family originated from Ulbersdorf, near Zullichar, Brandenburg, Prussia.

There is also mention of Gottfried HAEUSLER, b. 1824 Nekla Hauland, Posen, Prussia, who settled at Hoffnungsthal, near Lyndoch and eventually Stony Creek between Mount Pleasant and Birdwood. Married Rosine nee MU(E)LLER. He died 1895.

Also suggested Gottlob HAEUSLER with wife Anna Elisabeth nee LINDNER, arrived ship PAULINE in 1846, living at Blumberg and then moved to Tungkillo c1858. Gottlob moved to Victoria with some of his children where he died 1915 at Sunbury, Melbourne, Victoria.

You can download a Scan app that actually scans the photos/documents, as opposed to taking a photograph of them if you prefer.
This group is amazing on restoring photographs. They have helped me bring very poor photos back to life considerably.

Thankyou everyone. I appreciate the assistance, and know that I set a difficult one. I am very grateful for the work you have all done.

Thankyou Ian Wilson... so much... I did not think that this was able to be saved in anyway, and I am so grateful. This photo will be accessible to others from within the collection at the Mount Pleasant District History Room in South Australia.
Thankyou to everyone who has helped in this preservation... there will be more to come!!!

Is there a chance of saving this photograph of 12 regiments pictured with an Australian amongst the group.
Thankyou in anticipation.

Apologies for the delay in replying... it has been one of those weeks.
Thankyou so much for the improvements... I am very appreciative of at last putting a clearer face to these three boys. It will add to my collection of those who served from this area.

This is the only photograph I have. Is there any possibility of at least giving a little clarity to this newspaper photograph.
These boys are South Australian, from Mount Pleasant and all enlisted with two making the supreme sacrifice in Gallipoli and the third losing his life in an accident in Perth, Western Australia.
I am appreciative of any change. Thankyou.

Thankyou all... any improvement is better than the original, I think.
I can't even give an indication of colour as they changed their colours over time, and not certain of this very early photo. The local grounds were used firstly in 1918, and am not sure if there was a team prior to this.
Many thanks.

Hello, I am attaching a photo which is as I have received it... is there any way that it can be enhanced please?
