Hi Chris,
Have you Norah and Alfred's marriage cert. some australian marriage cert. can have some good info on them and from your post i gather you dont know when they arrived in Australia, if this is so some marriage cert. also state how long they have been here for hence you will know exactly what years to look for in New Zealand.

Just for interest sake there is a index for a WW2 army record for

LLOYD ALFRED : Service Number - N219130 : Date of birth - 19 May 1902 : Place of birth - WALGETT NSW : Place of enlistment - WAVERLEY PARK NSW : Next of Kin - LLOYD NORAH

The service record itself isnt on line but if you were interested you can contact the australian archives and they will let you know what you would have to do to obtain a copy.

Hello,

Yes, Kilkenny in Ireland. I believe they had 14 children so that would explain why there are names not in that list of 10.

Richard b. abt 1832 Kilkenny, IRL d. 20 Aug 1892

13120/1892 KENNA RICHARD PATRICK UNKNOWN WALGETT

Father: Patrick KENNA b. 1804 KIK IRL
Mother: Johanna MULHALL b: Abt 1806 in KIK IRL

Hanoria CLEAR b. abt 1846 in KIK IRL d. 11 Aug 1929

17346/1929 KENNA NORAH WILLIAM(83 YRS WALGETT) (-FARRELL) WALGETT

I can't see Richard yet in shipping records.

Index to Assisted British Immigration 1839-1871
CLEAR ANNE 4 JAN 1853 TIME AND TRUTH 10 26
CLEAR HONORIA 30 JAN 1853 TIME AND TRUTH 10 26
CLEAR HONORIA 6 JAN 1853 TIME AND TRUTH 10 26
CLEAR JOHN 1 JAN 1853 TIME AND TRUTH 10 26
CLEAR WILLIAM 29 JAN 1853 TIME AND TRUTH 10 26

I'll keep looking for Richard.

Regards,

Dave

Hi Chris,
Good info that Dave found for you :biggrin:

With the army records for your uncle i think its the National Archives of Australia that you have to contact with it WW2 they are not online and have to be applied for.

I found this

Walgett R C Cemetery
Monumental section: Plot 56
Name: KENNA Nora
Death 1929
Denomination: Roman Catholic


Dave had a Johanna KENNA b: 1876 in Albury NSW AUS .... this maybe yours??
