Back to 'P' in my tree.

I can't find births in NSW index for Harold, Olive and Elsie as James with mother K or C*.

Need the help of a tree for Edith's parents.

Marriages in NSW 1880 - 1944 for Olive to O'Brien and Elsie to Watts = no match.

I can find no birth in NSW index 1905 - 1907 for Edith Emily, or with any given name with those parents.

No JAMES births in NSW index 1890 - 1920 with those parents - Cath/Kath/Catherine/Katherine/Kathleen

Marriage of Charles to Kathleen/Katherine/... ADAMS not in NSW index.

I can't find the marriage in Vic. or Qld. or England.
