Yes, thanks Cherilyn. I have these now - been busy in the past week!). A problem I have is I cannot find Charlotte Margaret Mary's birth. Can find a Charlotte Margaret Victoria Conlon's birth (variation in both christan and surname) but I want to be sure the two are the same people. Most trees assume they are but I am now on a hunt to find evidence either way before I accept that.

Have ordered marriage certs etc so will also wait to see what they give me but I think the Edward John 'Gins' mentions might be Jack her father. Many thanks.

Welcome to the Boards


GR doesn't work on messages posted on these boards ................... people just do not search the boards.


Your best bet is to search the trees


Go to Search above, then click on Search All Trees


If your rellie's name appears, click on the name of the tree owner, and send a message asking if there could be a connection between you.

I am trying to find relatives who know anything about Merle Monica Chant and her ancestors. She is believed to be from the Dalby/Warwick area of Queensland. She married William Raymond White in 1940 in Young NSW. Think her father's name was Jack/John and he and his wife lived in the Coffs Harbour area of Sydney in the early 1950's.
