Do you have the marriage cert for his second marriage?

What does it say for his marital status - does it have him as a widower ?

Lee,

Where was Norman born? I found George was born in Melbourne, so obviously the family moved around

The two children were born before 1899 and there seems to be no other births. I guess you need the death certificate


There is a tree at Ancestry but Im not going to post any of the info - they have the mother Alice born after the children were born :-S

I know there is a lot of info on Oz certificates but not sure what would be on this marriage....would it tell you if his mom was deceased?

Hi Lee

The boys were not born after 1900

Ive posted Normans birth, cant see George birth but his death is 1906 and you say he was 10yrs when he died

lee,

Gins, it doesn't always say if the parents are deceased, they might just name the parents, depends on what information is given at the time.

lee,
Disregard the details I posted earlier wrong family.

The above are possible births for Alice. The 1863 looks promising, no middle name but that doesnt mean she wasnt given one at her baptisim
