Australia - Anthony George WILSON
« on: Friday 02 August 13 12:27 BST (UK) »
Hi,

I am trying to locate Anthony George WILSON and his descendants, if any. This is the information I have:

Name: Anthony George WILSON
Parents names: Thomas Wilson and Elizabeth Nolan.
Place of Birth: Edgeworthstown, Co. Longford, Ireland
Year of Birth: 1895/1896.
Year emigrated to Australia: 1913/1914.
Port of embarkment: don't know for sure (perhaps London).

I know that this is very little information, but I would be very happy to receive any help in this matter.

Thanks

Hi,

Im not finding anything much at all.

Tho i did find these ER's

Anthony George Wilson  1980 Shortland, New South Wales
   
Anthony George Wilson  1980  Diamond Valley, Victoria

I dont have further access so i have no idea if either of these are your fella. There are a few Anthony George Wilson's. I couldnt find a death index in NSW or QLD but then your fella may have still been alive at the online cut off dates.

Thank you very much Giblet and Leanne for the information.

Appart from these two Anthony George Wilson's (one in Shortland, NSW and the other in Diamond Valley, VIC), do you know if there are any others in Australia? Do you have any idea of how could I trace these two fellas or their descendants? I am sorry for so many questions, but I am totally new in searching family history and any indications would be very well received.

Thanks

Some really good links there.
I wasn't able to find any other information on ancestry I'll do another search for you.

He well might be the person I am looking for. I can confirm that his parents were Thomas Wilson, 1839 - 1913 Edegeworthstown, Co. Longford, Ireland and Elizabeth Nolan 1855 - 1929?. He also has the same name: Anthony George Wilson.

I think Melbourne was an usual port of disembarkment from London. And in 1980 he would be about 85 (a few in the family have reached 90 or even more). And, if by 1980 he was living with his daughter, he well might have named her as his mother: Elizabeth).

Everything seems to fit but, how could I confirm that he is the person I am looking for?
