Help please Re Robert Copeman
« on: Friday 10 May 19 04:43 BST (UK) »
I am trying to confirm that Robert Copeman who died in North Sydney Australia in 1917 and who lived in Hornsby NSW is the same Robert Copeman born 1857 Norwich Norfolk England. I would like any information also re his means of getting to Australia.

Who are you researching?

Robert Copeman who died in North Sydney Australia in 1917.......or......
Robert Copeman born 1857 Norwich Norfolk England.

If it can be shown that they are not the same man, which Robert COPEMAN would you still be interested in.....the man born 1857 Norwich, England.....or the man who died 1917, NSW, Australia
