Need some more birth reg.

Qld. BDM is giving me no Ambrose births 1860 - 1900 which can't be correct.

No given name entered and no parents names entered. Birth box only checked. Name correctly entered as ambrose.

Matthew Hennett married Ivy Evelyn Myers 1931 Qld – he was born 24 Nov 1903 to Henry William Ambrose & Emma Sophia Henett
Thanks Val.

Qld. BDM is still giving me no Ambrose births 1860 - 1918.
