Joseph CORREA date of arrival in Tasmania
« on: Wednesday 13 October 21 04:30 BST (UK) »
Seeking the date this man arrived in Tasmania. Newspapers reported him as a native of Cape de Verde Islands. He was definitely in Tasmania in August 1879 as he was reported at the diggings at Mount Arthur. He married in Launceston in 1881, with his registered age as 24, thus a birth date of around 1857. His occupation was a cook at his marriage but he was later a laborer and chimney sweep. I have wives and children etc, just need when he arrived. Thanks in anticipation.

His death certificate, Tasmania, should record "years in the colony".

What do you see on the death certificate?
