Can anyone help me? My great grandfather according to his death certificate came to Australia when he was about 11 years. His marriage certificate or death certificate does not have his parents names on it. Have information on George's descendants but not his ancestors. According to his death certificate he was born in Cornwall about 1843. Hope some one can help.

Thanks for looking. Yes that is my tree on Ancestry. It just remains a mystery what happened before George William married Mary Ann Brown. I have 3 birth certificates from England, but can't marry them up with someone in Australia. I am presently waiting on some paperwork that may give me some answers, regards Lyn
