Looking for the family in 1861 and 1871. Should be a son William Samuel.

Can't find any other Butcher/Bird births. I also cannot make out where in Leicestershire Sarah was born. It looks like Macea but I cannot find anywhere with that name or anything similar. Definitely begins M.

Thanks Emeltee.

I presume the Queensland site will be back on-line sometime Monday so I'll check again for arrival.

Dave
 
Thanks Emeltee.

So far I can't find a death for Sarah or Samuel in Qld.

Can't see a marriage for Edith. The marriage for an Elizabeth Butcher is not the right one by this death

1948 C3518 Elizabeth Mary Cole - Arthur Butcher - Fanny Baker


Qld. Marriage 11 Aug 1882/C0506 Butcher William Samuel - Prizeman Harriet

Thanks Geoff.

Where is Elizabeth on passenger list? The index search is not currently available.

Death 1873 C1568 Ada Christina Butcher Samuel Butcher Sarah Bird

Dave
 
Thanks Geoff.

Qld. site search is still down.

I think I have the right deaths for Samuel and Sarah.

Dave
 
Yes, I've done that once before but not this time. Had problems with the csv until I used LibreOffice calc to import it. Very slow to scroll to bottom.


If I knew how to use the software I could probably only import the required columns.
