O'Donnell, Mosman
« on: Wednesday 29 May 19 09:32 BST (UK) »
Looking for the death of Joseph A. O'Donnell who would have been born circa 1900 in Sydney. Parents William and Catherine. Siblings Edmond, Mary and James.

Joseph married Dorothy Lewis 1941 in Mosman. He was living in Mosman in 1944 as per his fathers obit.

Any help on the above family would be much appreciated.

Thank you.

NSW BDM online indexes cover historic registrations, so births more than 100 years ago, marriages more than 50 years ago and deaths more than 30 years ago.
https://www.bdm.nsw.gov.au/Pages/family-history-research/family-history-research-nsw.aspx
The official transcriptions option is as valid as the real deal certificates for family history purposes, and are both cheaper and of course prepared by experienced transcribers familiar with the longhand script on many of the registratios.

Ryerson Index is a volunteer project indexing online the death/funeral/probate announcements in many of the newspapers until current times.
https://www.ryersonindex.org/

I can see a Joseph A ODONNELL's birth indexed for 1906 with parents as William and Catherine at the NSW BDM.

The Sydney Morning Herald (SMH) is one of many newspapers that are part of the digitised newspapers project at the National Library of Australia's Trove website.   
https://trove.nla.gov.au/  Of course Trove is much more than just the digitised newspapers.

But at present, Trove's coverage of the SMH extends from 1842-1954.   There are other ways to look up the more recent editions, some require memberships and logins and even subscriptions.  But there are also many of the more recent SMH editions at the following website which is freely available...
 https://news.google.com/newspapers  and includes newspapers from around the globe.
