Hi Sara,

found these sites that may help you

I would request a search will NSW State Library.
Ask for both Frederick and Fred in each state between 1930 to 1940, maybe ask per state rather then all at once. They will send it out to you at no charge, then you can go through and mark each one off that doesn't match

regards, Louisa


Dan Report 22 Jan 2008 04:40

Many thanks Louisa, I appreciate you taking the time to look and finding Alexander is terrific.

Am I able to ask for 2 more if you have time.

John Charles Martin in most probably Mackay QLD. His wife was Adeline and she died in 1909, John died in 1938 (he had a son John Sinclair Martin, who is also my husbands ancestor who lived in Mackay also).

And lastly

Michael BARRY (m. Ellen/Ellie), who lived in Brisbane. Ellen died in 1920 and Michael in 1935. I have no idea what Michael's occupation was so would be interested to know if you can find them.

Thanks again, this is such an awesome offer Louisa.

Hello Louisa

Many thanks for looking up Catherine Batchelor and Francis William Batchelor.
Is there nothing for Catherine before 1920, as she died in 1921!!
Her husband, Francis William Batchelor died in 1907

Many thanks for your help

Hi Louisa

It is Henry Angus Forbes who I am (very) interested in, as I said yesterday I believe he is in Queensland. Many thanks for your time.

Hi Alan,

Sorry but your original message did not include a middle name.

1913 and 1919
Henry Angus Forbes, Cloncurry, carpenter
no address listed for those years.

Alan I was wondering if your Henry Angus is related to Sir Frances Forbes 1784-184, settler. If so the Forbes family have ties to the Bundock family and my great great uncle was names francis Forbes Bundock after him. Just a bit of trivia.

regards, Louisa

Hello Louisa,

Many thanks for the info re Wellauers and Wellings.
It certainly helped fill out the picture and gave me a few leads to follow up.

Just a quick question. Do you know of any free sites to look up bdm in Queensland and NSW?

Thank you for all your time and effort.
