Thanks gibbo.

If Henry is correct for middle name then we have several errors in the reg. Albert A and Albert Louis.
 
Huge number of obituaries in Trove for a William Ross. He died after 1934.

I hope this message gets to the right person. I have been given a Holy Bible with a handwritten dedication to the name "Emmaline Beatrice Dumbrell" from her parents dated 1926. Would love to hand it back to the family if possible.
 
Hello and welcome to the Forum.

I'm not sure a family member will see this. I'm not directly related. The family is just on a side branch of my large tree.

Did some checking and

Emmeline Russell nee Dumbrell died in Coffs Harbour in 1970.
Marion Thornley nee Dumbrell died in Springwood in 1980
Trixie Prowse died 2010 in Bupa Tumut

Most of the above places have community forums on facebook that you may be able to ask if there are any relatives of Emmeline Beatrice still in that area, someone surely would be bound to know. Or you could just search on facebook for the surname along with the name of the town and someone with that name might pop up. Another idea is to email the family history societys in those towns and may might be able to track relatives down. Would be a nice outcome to have the bible returned :)
