just seems strange that siblings:

Cecelia b 1857, Louisa b 1861 and brother Joseph b 1863 all in Vic , Bertha supposed to be b 1859 and would have thought it would also be in Vic, maybe missing from register or under some weird spelling on Bertha... or was she registered under different surname.. Mum didn't marry till 1860 so sister Cecelia b 1857 and Bertha in 1859 were prior to marriage.
