Robert IRVING
« on: Tuesday 14 February 12 17:39 GMT (UK) »
I believe a Robert Irving, b 1831 Workington, Cumbria emigrated 1852/53 to Wedderburn, Victoria. I think I have found his passport application. Rumour has it he married an Elizabeth Williamson in 1863, they had at least one son William b 1875 who married and had 9 children, again one of them called William b 1900.

Robert died 1906 in Australia. I have looked at the Oz sites but cannot seem to find any records, which I expected to do as I have some dates.

If you can start me on the path or give me a resource to follow I would be most grateful.

Thank you for your help

Frances

Hi Frances, Best path to follow is from our resources section top of Australia Board.
http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php/topic,369963.0.html

In Australia we have individual BDM's for each State. You will find the link on the Vic resource above, we also have Historical Newspaper archives "TROVE"
also at the link. In that you may find reference to Birth announcements, marriage and funeral. Also should they be in business possible advertisements.

The Military are also covered, Boer War, WW1, and WW2. as well as other engagements.

If you need further assistance please post your requests there are lots of experienced RChatters willing to help. ;)
