Roy Dodd and Mary Elizabeth White
« on: Monday 25 November 19 05:37 GMT (UK) »
hello I am trying to trace my grandfathers relatives. His mother was Mary Elizabeth White and her Parents where John Samuel White and Louisa omaley/maley (change in name) from my findings, and Louisa's parents were john omaley 1843-1919 and pleasant aggas 1845-1906. I am hoping that there is someone who may know about Roy Dodd I have been told he was know by other names such as John Morris Dodd, John Marcus Dodd and Roy Robert Walters. But from my findings from other sites and cousins I have made we found that Roy Dodd married a Mary Elizabeth White but so did a John Dodd. so one wonders was Roy and john brothers? or. so can someone help.

Welcome to rootschat, Kandi.

Which country did these people live in, or did they move around?

Thank-you.

Added:
OK.
Pleasant Aggas was born in Tasmania, according to trees on Ancestry.
Have you got access to Ancestry, or which sites do you use?

A tree has Louisa Malley born 13th May 1877 Westbury, Tasmania, and dies 16th November 1919, Launceston, but does not know who the spouse is.

Added:
I had just seen one tree and looked there.

Pleasant is in possibly 43 trees on Ancestry.

Are you getting confused because of other people's mistakes?

Do you have the documents when you tracked back, or just using other people's claims?

Is Roy Dodd a direct ancestor, or a second husband of Mary Elizabeth White?

as far as I KNOW Roy Dodd is from NSW and died in either Melbourne or western Australia. I was on ancestry but my time ran out. I have been mainly using family search.org and other sites like Geni and find my past to name a few. thankyou for replying. I do not have any documents most of what I know is from living relatives. I am trying to trace their birth certificates and death certificates

Mary Elizabeth White, according to trees, was born on 5th June 1907, Beaconsfield, Tasmania, and married an unknown Dodd, or one or other or both of the Dodds mentioned by Kandi. and died 1960, Launceston.

Who was your grandfather, and have you got any birth dates, death dates, marriage certificates etc for him? War records, electoral rolls with parents?

Added:
Any dates for Roy Dodd, please?

In 1943 ER, Mary Elizabeth Dodd was living at 281 Charles Street, no other Dodd at that address.  Similarly in 1949.

Are they meant to have met in Tasmania or Australia, and your grandfather born where?

If, as seems likely, Mary never married Mr Dodd, then you need your grandfather's birth certificate for whatever information it contains.
If she did marry Mr Dodd, then you need that certificate also.

When was your grandfather born, and where?

You have put
'my grandfather as far as I know was born in Sydney Australia in 1932 and his father from what I was told died in port Melbourne and a uncle in western Australia'

You need to work backwards using certificates to help confirm what you have been told.

Death certificate of grandfather.

Marriage certificate of grandfather.

Birth certificate of grandfather.

Have you got any of these, or are you in the middle of applying for them? Or are they not available because of age/year restrictions?  Was it your Mother or Father who was the witness on the death certificate, or has a relation got  an original document?
