Hi Steve

I hope you are well?  I am related to the Shaw's via Nathaniel Shaw my 2nd Great Grandfather.  I have read your posts from a few years ago now and was wondering if you had any further success going back from Nathaniel.  I am on ancestry and also live in Perth.

I ordered Nathaniel's death cert and it states he was 73 in 1909.  This puts his date of birth around 1836.  I have a lot of conflicting info on his DOB but I'm assuming life must have been pretty tough and he probably had no idea exactly when he was born.  There are some interesting newspaper articles on Trove and it seems he was either in trouble or around trouble his entire life! :)

I would appreciate any assistance. 

Kind regards
