Hi Fran,
I wonder if you have used this link before

http://portal.archives.tas.gov.au/menu.aspx?search=11

By opening the search categories one at a time which are down the left of the screen, you can look for details about your names. Just type the name into the box!!

The one called "family links" may be a good help to you.

Yes I have used that site many times, did find a Thomas Burke (o) & Ann McNamara but no family attached to this record.( this could be them as ages would fit for Thomas but Annie?)
I know that their daughter, Annie Charlotte b. 1859 Ballarat which is my direct line.
Any other ideas ???

Hi there,

Do you have a copy of the birth cert for your Annie Charlotte Bourke, born Ballarat in 1859.  I have bc for a birth in Ballarat in that era for one of my forebears .... very informative, particularly re the parents and older siblings, including date of parents marriage etc.  From my point of view that confirmed I was on the right track even though the spelling of the family surname was slightly "out" on the index, the cert had plenty of confirming details  ;)

Fingers crossed for you

Cheers,  JM

BROWN D (mentioned in Sue's post) would be "Browns Diggings" which were in the Smythesdale area of Ballarat District.
