    Hi Irish Bluebird! welcome from me too. I also have Irish, Welsh and English in my tree - perhaps we might collide in the future :biggrin: Have fun with your research, we are a very friendly bunch and don't bite much! Penny

    Thank you so much Julie! My aunt will be so pleased. How did you manage to look him up? Do you have access to the Australian Electoral Register or do you have a contact? Your help is much appreciated! Penny

    What happened to him?

    My gt uncle David Hamilton Brazell sailed to Freemantle on 15 December 1925. He died in Brisbane on 17 July 1961. How can I find out what happened in the intervening years? Did he marry? Where did he go? etc. Any suggestions will be gratefully received! Penny:confused:

    falsifying age at marriage

    Or possibly all three!! Is it possible that, with the fashion of siblings naming their children with the same family names, these are two girls with the same name but different birth dates?
