Western Australia: Donald McKELLAR, born 1834, Glasgow, Lanarkshire
« on: Wednesday 25 April 18 20:39 BST (UK) »
Hello,

FindMyPast records the death in Western Australia of a Donald McKELLAR in 1910, but I am unable to access the details as my subscription is not "worldwide".   I have checked the WA Online BDM Indexes without success.

Can anyone help with the information please.

Thank you

BAC3

Good Morning cupoflife and Ros,

I think your details may have successfully found the correct person, not only in date of birth terms (1834) but also geographically.   Some of the reports in TROVE state he was a shepherd in Kojonup which, in Australian terms, is not a million miles from Bridgetown.

Very much a balance of probabilities confirmation I would argue.

Thank you,
