Hi Dave

Apologies for answering in your Furner forum. Am new to forums and am trying to contact you re John Davidson, his 2nd wife Elizabeth Whitehill Macnicol and son, Donald Macnicol Davidson. Found your posts. My Grandmother was Grace Muriel. Am interested in sharing information and photos. I have quite a bit of information

Cheers
Lorraine

Hello crankypants,

Well, I'm on Win 7 Ultimate 64-bit. :D :D

It's going to take a few days to configure it my way and to install all the apps.

Not many problems so far. Can't say yet how much i like it. :rolleyes:

Regards,

Dave

Hi Dave

Looked in all the usual places for these two couples deaths but found nothing. I did check interstate deaths still nothing. I'd say as both couples were in the Coolamon area up to 1954 they wouldn't have ventured too far.
The Kirkwood parents are buried at Coolamon.

Glad to hear everything's running smoothly, I can hear those cogs cranking:D

cheers

Hello crankypants,

Thanks. Yes, I guess there's nothing in Ryerson because the deaths are not in SMH. Please see if you can find the parents of Andrew McLaren MENZIES b. 1888 Kyabram. Thanks.

I was surprised how smoothly the install went on this 2 1/2 year-old system. I'd say the hamsters are not that noisy :D :D

It will take me ages to get all the fonts and colours and window options the way I like them. I'm slowly installing the applications. I had 97 programs installed in 'Program Files' in XP. :2fun:

I'm finding some won't run with this OS, not even in XP mode. I've had to search for replacements that are stated to work with Vista. Having 4 Gb of RAM working with 64-bit version of OS is really good. It will keep me happy for another year, I'd say.

Regards,

Dave

Hello crankypants,

Thank you very much. Yes, YES :D :D

George John Francis William & Ella Victoria are siblings and they married siblings. The Z= Zillah but sometimes Zullah etc...

The MENZIES's mother's name is Rose Zillah TREVASKIS.

Death # 5176/1949 FURNER ROSE ZILLAH ROBERT ROSE ZILLAH WAGGA WAGGA

FURNER ROSE ZILLAH F METHODIST 15/03/1949 59:00 COOLAMON - TRADITIONAL SECTION METHODIST P 11 937 0 : 864

I can't open .xls yet so I can't check the Coolamon Cemetery to see if Andrew & Ella are buried there. I don't have MS Office so I can't install that. :rolleyes:

Regards,

Dave

Hi Dave

Normally I wouldn't try to work out the surname because you could probably waste hours so it's easier for a lookup. However it took me 15 minutes to work out Zillah's maiden name, got to TREVA then searched all in Vic E/R, crazy ain't I.:D

Family Name: TREVASKIS
Given Name(s): Zillah
Event Marriage
Spouse's Family Name: MENZIES
Spouse's Given Name(s): Robert
Year of Registration: 1885

Sorry Andrew & Ella not on Coolamon Cemetery excel spreadsheet.

cheers

Hello crankypants,

Thank you very much. I seem to have loaded a slightly older copy of my database into Win 7 so I'm missing a few of the E/R. I'm going through all the posts in this thread and checking all the saved images on hard disk for the missing ones. We didn't get to the end of the FURNER but I hope I'm not repeating requests with the ones to come.

Dorothy Alice FURNER b. 1901 Cobar d. 1982 Normanhurst

married 1923 Newtown

John Stanley PAINE b. 1894 Lismore d. 1980 Normanhurst

Please see what you can find. Thanks.
--------------

1930 N.S.W Electoral Roll – North Sydney – Artarmon
PRINCE Elizabeth, 19 Orchard road, Chatswood, home duties
PRINCE Erle Reginald, 19 Orchard road, Chatswood, bank inspector
Please see if you can find them after 1930. Thanks.

Regards,

Dave

Hello crankypants,

Thank you very much. I made backups in three places on 2 different hard disks and it seems as though I discarded the newest instead of the oldest and ended up loading one that put me back to the start of this thread. Now I'm feeling FURNERed :D :D I think I have now got all the E/R posted here. I'm not missing any of the images you sent. I have a backup copy of them on another hd.


Marjorie Beatrice FURNER b. 1916 d. 2001

married 1942 Camden

Lloyd Hilton PRIOR b. 1921 Picton d. 1997

Please see what you can find. Thanks.

1936 N.S.W Electoral Roll – Werriwa – Camden
FURNER Emma Margaret, Argyle street, Camden, home duties
FURNER Percy Charles, Argyle street, Camden shopkeeper
Please see if you can find them after 1936. Thanks.

Regards,

Dave

Hello crankypants,

Of course we can't go for long without yet another clergyman :2fun:

All that moving around means lots of different entries.

Regards,

Dave
