CURRAN of Geelong Victoria
« on: Friday 25 February 11 11:22 GMT (UK) »
Looking for information on the descendants of Cyril and Adelaide Curran, any information grateful. They lived in the Geelong area and I have been told that some still live there.....

Thanks,

Maree ???

In 1954, they were living in a Melbourne suburb called Heidelberg at 1 Lancewood Ave.

Cyril died in Fitzroy, Victoria in 1979.  They had a daughter Ann who died in 1949 in Carlton. 

It seems like they spent their life since their 1939 marriage in NSW in the inner suburbs of Melbourne.  Geelong is a fair way from there - well about an hour's drive on a good day.  But there's an Adelaide Curran who died in Geelong in 1965.

The birth records don't go past when they would have been married so it would be hard to find out the names of other children.  I even checked the Vic newspapers up to 1954 but couldn't find a death notice for Ann that may have mentioned other siblings.

If you do have any names, you can try the whitepages or see if someone can do an electoral roll search for you.

Best wishes,

Jenni.
