You have been a busy bee, minniehaha, and I thought you only dealt with NZ! Do the Trove papers mean that the event occurred the day before or do they publish on the same day? Seems divorce was easier there than here, up until the 1970's here you had to prove adultery or desertion for up to 7 years after the event!

Hi Cr,

I would say the date that appears after "death notice" would be the actual death date. The next date being the day of publication.

This being an example of what you are referring to?

"FIELD   Ernest Vincent   Death notice   15AUG1966   Death   55   late of Doncaster   The Age (Melbourne)   16AUG1966"


Hope you have some details to keep you busy while we turn in for the night down under....... :)

Certainly got a lot to sort through minniehaha, I was thinking more about the divorce as the death date is stated.

Hi Cr,

If you go to the top of the divorce report which appeared in the newspaper dated 12.2.1935, it reads,

"Mr. Justice Duffy continued the hearing yesterday........."

[However the divorce was not made final on 11.2.1935, just the grant of a decree nisi.]

The decree absolute would probably be granted approximately about 6 months later.

Thank you minniehaha; a very tragic end indeed for the lady. Also John's 'friend' not the wife so I guess this is the friend who he left money, etc to.
