Hi all,

Just joined hoping to connect with fellow researchers. Some of my ancestors came to Australia from England in the mid 1800's as paying immigrants. One in particular has a bit of a secretive past, and was a family outcast. I have posted details on the Wanted Names under Bretherton.
My ancestor spent time in Versailles, France in the late 1830's, and his death records state that he served time as a "Lifeguard". If anyone can offer information on what that term means exactly and how I could locate any records of enlistment, service or discharge I would be incredibly grateful.

Thanks and hope you all have a good New Year, especially for your family research!:)
Michelle
