Banks in NSW
« on: Friday 01 May 20 09:48 BST (UK) »
Hello, I have never done research in Australia before but I am looking into a couple that appears multiple times in my DNA matches. It seems nobody has taken the husband's tree out very far and I can see why since I'm having some difficulty finding anything concrete.

Frank Banks born 7 Nov 1899 allegedly in Western Australia or Newcastle, NSW, parents William Banks and Mary Ann unknown maiden name. Frank married Molly Spinks in 1922 but I believe the DNA match is specifically through the Banks side so I am not as interested in Spinks. It looks like Frank had a sister Ivy born in 1902 but I currently know very little else. There are a couple instances of people with his parents' names dying in Newcastle but without an idea of their birth dates I can't be sure.

It is possible that Mary Ann remarried in 1909 to William Whitham in Newcastle.

Thanks for any help.

Hi

The Info on a NSW bdm marriage rego is quite detailed and includes their ages, occupations, places of birth etc AND details about their parents including maiden names of their mums. 
Their marriage indexed NSWBDM, #16350/1922, registered Newcastle district.  Unless you want their autographs, consider obtaining an official transcription,  same info, cost less and the clergy's  handwriting is already sorted.

Thank you for all this info. As I said I am not too familiar with the resources available for Australian research. Specifically I am looking for more information about Frank's parents rather than Frank himself as to find how I am related to these DNA matches I will have to trace Frank's tree back more. Is there any info regarding his parents in these registries?
