violet thelma elston
« on: Sunday 02 February 14 03:14 GMT (UK) »
Hello everyone.  Hoping for some help please. Looking for the parents of Violet Thelma Elston.  born abt 1911.   only trace I have found of her under her maiden name Elston , is in Colac electoral roll in 1931.  Her death under her married name of Ross, says her mothers name was Rose.  This is all I have.  Any help will be greatly appreciated.
kind regards from Heather

Violet Thelma ELSTON married Geo ROSS in 1933.
Ref = 1742

So far I can't see a birth for her in Victoria.

Do you have first names for the parents or only mothers' maiden surname?

Heather, does her death information give her mother's surname as Rose or her given name?

I've found the death of a Rose ELSTON aged 72 at Kew in 1957.
I'll investigate further.

Rose ELSTON is on the Corangamite Electoral Roll in 1919!
Address given as Apollo Bay, occupation home duties.
The same address has Hannah ELSTON listed.

The death index gives Rose's mother as Hannah ANDREWS and her father as Arthur Henry ELSTON.
Hannah died in COLAC in 1930 and Arthur Henry died there in 1922.

I'm really wondering.....

The only online tree on Ancestry has Violet's birth as May 1910, and her mother as Rose ELSTON.
There's a photo of her on there.

Using 1910 and just the given name of Violet, or Thelma, nothing is appearing for her birth in the indexes.

Maybe you need to get the marriage certificate of Violet Thelma ELSTON and George ROSS, Heather.....that should name her parents, provided she gave the information.
