Stevenson family harland nr geelong after finding a old letter
« on: Wednesday 05 August 20 11:42 BST (UK) »
Hi all
We have found a letter addressed to my great grandparents in the uk which starts with dear ma and pa . From doris Stevenson. And her husband Charlie?
The question is we cannot find a doris hamer the family name in our records. All we know is that she must be a family member as she address,s them as family members.
The address the letter was sent from is tahoma or takoma court
They must have had a least to boys. And the husband was off too camp in 1954. 300mls away.
Any help would be much appreciated

Use FreeBDM to find marriage 1940, and birth of two sons.

I cannot see deaths for any of these people in Australia so.......... could all be alive.

Geelong Western Public Cemetery has Charles and Doris Stevenson in the same location. Provic has a 1996 probate record for Doris Hamer Stevenson that fits with the burial year

Hi Phil,
If you type Charles Russell STEVENSON into https://recordsearch.naa.gov.au/SearchNRetrieve/Interface/SearchScreens/BasicSearch.aspx
You will see that Charles and Doris and their 2 children (with names and birthdates) travelled by the RANCHI which left Tilbury 4 Feb 1951 as part of the Ex-servicemen's Free Passage Scheme.
