Hi all,

Just wondering when james Tobit(t) and wife Rhoda emigrate to Australia ?
They were married in England in 1835 (Jevingron, Sussex).
First child was born in Australia in 1837 or 1838 i think.
I don't know from wheren they left or in which harbour they arrived. sorry.

You can find all the BDM's for South Australia online at SA Genealogy
http://www.genealogysa.org.au/resources/online-databases.html

If you would like further information about the details on the registrations I can post more from my resources eg full dates, ages and names of parents of bride and groom and actual places the events took place not just the registrations districts.  The districts covered large areas in the early days of the Colony of South Australia.

You can search for newspaper items which have been digitised at http://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/

Much more satisfying to do your own research.
