Birth/family of Muriel Victoria WEEKS
« on: Monday 15 November 21 22:42 GMT (UK) »
I'm chasing down information on my great grandmother Muriel Victoria WEEKS. I've had not much luck in tracing her or her family down, and family members I have left have very limited knowledge of family background. But this is the information I know;

Muriel Victoria WEEKS
born 1920
Died 1998

Married Bruce Reginald STUART in Sydney 1942. I have a few census records of them living together after that and know their children ect so am after information on her birth and parental lines.

From what information I could get from my grandmother, Muriel's mothers maiden name was CARLINE though I am not 100% on spelling as my grandmother is mentally ill and it's quite hard to get any information.

From what my mother remembers nana CARLINE and poppy WEEKS divorced/separated.

I don't even know for sure where the family originates from so it's making my search quite difficult!

You need to purchase a copy of the 1942 marriage certificate.  It should name both sets of parents and birthplaces.  The cheapest way to obtain a certtificate in NSW is to use a transcription agent. 

Details are here, scroll down to 'hire a transcription agent':

This is likely her birth, a late registration in 1935:

WEEKS, Muriel Victoria
415/1935
Father: Herbert Nelson
Mother: Elsie May

You can work out the date of birth using the 'from' and 'to' fields on the search page.

Ryerson Index has the death of Muriel Victoria STUART, Newcastle Herald 19 November 1998
https://ryersonindex.org/search.php 

But as to the other people identified in the Opening Post .... it may well be that there are living people being named and identified.   

It is a No No to name living people in posts at RChat.   Please may I ask for confirmation that you already know that all the people named in the Opening Post are no longer living.  Otherwise, please use the modify button to remove their names.

As an Aside,  may I share a snip of one of the posts on this thread.  There's a Advertisement in the middle of it that seems to be separating an important tip from Dundee and the live link to the Official Transcription Agents.  :-X  :-X  :-X

Thanks, I have had certificates transcribed so just waiting on them :)

Is it odd that there would be no father listed on her birth certificate, or that it was registered some 4 years later when her mother married WEEKS?
