What is recorded on the birth certificate for a marriage date and place?  Who was the informant on Amy's death cert?

I cannot find any birth registrations for anyone with the surname SULLIVAN at Camden 1870-1900 listed at NSW BDM online index...

I did find a Daniel Westrope O Sullivan who had a child around the time of her birth in Wodonga ?
The child was unnamed. Amyís two children Royal and Catherine ada Edwards were both born in Wodonga . Amy was also known as Ada.

What was recorded as George Henry's occupation on the 1909 birth certificate?

Do you have the 1911 birth certificate and if so, does it have the same date for the parents' marriage?

Unfortunately not everyone was honest with their details.  Many state a place of birth when in fact it is the place where they were raised.

I have search the NSW marriage just using EDWARDS and 30 Jun 1908 with no result.  It would appear they didn't marry on that date in Sydney.

All her electoral roll listings from 1913 are in the name of Amy Ann EDWARDS.

It just has him as labourer
Address : Railway coffee Palace Elgin st Wodonga.
Apparently the family whisper was she was disowned by family for running off with George.
I donít have Catherine ADAs birth cert 1911 index says mothers maiden name Sullivan.
I found a marriage for a George Edwards to an ADa Robertson in Sydney in 1906 ,apparently Amy was known as Ada
