BARNES rellies in Queensland, AUS??

Location
Perth Western Australia
From
Australia
Greetings all. My relative - William Woollard Barnes - married Iris M McMahon in 1928 at Perth, West Aust. I believe they went to Queensland. I also believe they had a son John. I am trying to find some trace of the family to fill gaps in my family tree. I cannot trace any death records for either William (Bill) or Iris. There may have been a Joyce somewhere in the family. Any help would be appreciated. Better still, do I have any relatives out there? Cheers AB.

Hi AB
I found that William had joined the army in 1942 in Western Australia. I know it was before they come to QLD but put the link below for just out of interest for you. I dont know if you have already contacted any of the below but in case you havent they may be able to help. [cross the fingers all the links work for you]

I have also found him on the electoral register for 1949 in QLD

Name: William Woollard Barnes
electoral year 1949
state QLD
District Lilley Brisbane

The QLD state archives would be able to help you as to whether William left a will or not. Wills are brilliant in the aspect they usually name family members and would have his address.

http://www.archives.qld.gov.au/


The QLD state library would be able to possible check electoral registers for him which may help with addresses or any obituaries etc

Also put the link for the birth/marriage and death records for QLD. I didnt find anything on your william but as the death index online only goes to 1964 it appears he may have died after then. If you contact they maybe able to help you as well

All these contacts are great with the help they can give and one of them may be able to give you a lead.
 
Hi AB,
I dont know if you have seen this or not but i found some more info and it appears that William has married twice. Once to Iris and then to a joyce. As William has Iris as his next of kin in 1942 on his army therefore we can assume he married Joyce after that date. I cant find a second marriage in WA or QLD as the indexes on line dont go to that date. Link below where i found the info that could be worth following up if your interested and there is a email address there as well.

Adrian, I am John William Barnes the son of William (Bill) and Joyce so I can fill in some details about our life in Queensland if you wish. Cheers John.
 
Hi Adrian
Looks as if you may have been trying to log in with your user name without a space, whereas before it was with a space after Adrian.

You need to make three posts using one of the user names before you can send a private message. It is a few months since Willjohn was on line.

Hi Dave.
No, the problem was I had to change my web provider so I couldn't prove I was the original person. Somehow, with a new login, I have managed to recover this link.

Can you explain the three posts, please?????

As moderator, are you able to let willjohn know I need him?

Cheers and thanks
Adrian.
 
Hi Dave, thanks for assisting us to connect!
Hi John, I have sent a pm to you direct.
I have been off the air for a while travelling the outback.
Cheers,
Adrian Barnes.
