Whoops the  reg no 6317 for Ctina Stevens death.

Also  been  trying  to  find a  few  more of  their girls grandchildrens marriages and deaths

Have found in England Nina E Schilan marrying in 1914 a Walter De B Thomas and  a birth in 1915 for a Dallas De B Thomas  but I  cannot trace  anything on the surname of De b Thomas most frustrating


However I  d find  this article
http://ndpbeta.nla.gov.au/ndp/del/article/3859280?searchTerm=sichlau

which  confirms Nina's name as Thomas


 This is a link  to  what you can expect to see on Australian certificates,  bear in mind  that the information  given  on death certificates is only as good as the informants knowledge

Hi Michael,
A contact with an index on cd to Monumental Inscriptions [headstones] at Melbourne General Cemetery  is not able to see anything for Christina or her husband .
They may be there without a stone and you can email and a
ask the records to be checked.
 mgcATnecropolis.com.au.  replace AT with @

Perhps she is somewhere else?????

A couple of the grandsons of Christina, Caroline's boys, enlisted for ww1 and you can see their papers digitised.
Charles gives his father's exact address in Manly as he is Next of Kin.
22 Wentworth Street Manly.
Maybe googlearth will find it for you!!

Guess who has spent all day rooting around the sites you mentioned? Nice and sunny in Ireland this morning, we had a good walk but after that it was just one site after another.
I have emailed the cemetery asking if they can help find Christina and will post when I hear from them. I did indeed find Wentworth St on Google but No 22 has been replaced by what seems to be a block of flats. Your public records site is utterly brilliant - we found many McRitchies including Sqn Ldr Ian McR whom we knew about, my father being in the RAF himself during WWii. We found Charles Wild, Christina's grandson, he was only a little chap at 5ft6ins with 32in chest but he must have been ferocious as he won the Military Medal for routing an enemy post single-handed.
Thanks again for all you have done for us, you might like to see where we began with notes in the family Bible. The little X beside each girl's name has a note beneath: Jany 8th 1848, left for Australia.

Hello  there

what a wonderfull treasure for you  to  have in  your family, you  can now add so much more into your family  tree because of  the initial entry in  that bible,

I  am  still  searching away  for more details.


Now  the Australian White Pages list a few Sichlau in Victoria two of which live in Siclhaus Road YEA

http://www.whitepages.com.au/wp/initResSearch.do (search residential)

I would assume  that it being such an unusual name that they might be descendants(seeing William Harvey Sichlau died in Yea) 


Again spelling mistakes make searching fun

LICLAU William Harvey married Alice Parker JACKSON in 1914 in Victoria  reg no 682
Also recorded as LICHLAN

Births to this couple ( up to 1920 the range of  indexs)

SICHLAU Louis Harvey born 1915 at Geelong reg no 3920 
He married in 1942 to Masisie Harvey Templeton reg no 22960

SICHLAU Jack Parker born 1920 at Geelong reg no 12776


SICHLAU Alice Parker died in 1976 at Yea aged 91 reg no 13967
Father Jackson John S Mother Alice Victoria  PARKER
Given Names:

Thanks for that, I see 8 Sichlaus in the White Pages, one living at Sichlaus Rd in Hampton E.
Melbourne Cemetery came back very quickly, they say there is no record for Christina but if she was buried in a public grave they might have it if we could quote a burial date. I downloaded the reg. entry from Victoria bmd but there is no date other than 1902, so I have emailed them to see if they can help.
Back to the rain in Ireland this am, not complaining as we wish we could send it on to you. The drought has been bad enough in itself but the TV pictures of the fires are terrible.
Bye for now

Hello  there Michael

now  that is odd,  you  say you  purchased a death certificate for Christina Stephens died 1902  but  there was no date on it!

what did she die of  and  who was  the informant etc.  Did it say where she was buried?

I thought it was odd myself: what I received was headed Historical Index Detailed Results as follows: Family Name STEPHENS Given name Ctina Sex: unknown Event: DEATH Father's name: unknown Mother's name: unknown Spouse's family name: blank Age: 78 Birth place: blank Death place: Melb E Registration yr: 1902 Registration No: 8317
We get similar printouts from sites in UK but they have much more detail. Maybe I have to buy image of this record? Maybe the certificate would have the extra detail? I expect the BMD office will have the answer in due course
