Please can anyone help me find the birth of Valdamar or Valdemar Lance Strother born between 1890 and 1900 to William (Wilhelm) Strother and Ellen (nee Hill). His POB on Army record says Norseman WA but I cannot find a birth record. I have records for his siblings.
Cheers
Karen

Hello Karen,

You may have all this already.

Obituary in newspaper Index has this:

STROTHER Valdemar Lance 81 1980

No sign of a birth in WA BMD.

Valdemar Lance Strother 1925 Western Australia Kalgoorlie

I think crankypants has access to South Australian records.

Regards,

Dave

Hi Dave
Cheers for that check. He is my exes Grandad. I have his marriage, death and 3 electoral rolls, 1926, 1936 and 1937 but cannot find a birth in WA.
A branch of the family says his father and mother (William and Ellen) came to WA from SA in the early 1900's but as I said, the Army says birth date is 22 Dec 1899 in Norseman WA (near Kalgoorlie-Boulder). Just checking if had told any porky pies to his birth date as I cannot find him but have all his siblings.
I will try Crankpants by PM
Cheers
Kaz

Hi Karen

Sorry No luck with Valdemar/Valdamar Lance STROTHER on the S.A birth index.
He is a mystery, though it's possible if the family moved back to W.A in 1899 the birth just wasn't registered.

Hi Crankypants - thanks for all this. We are very puzzled - maybe she was pregnant and gave birth on the border SA/WA? There does not seem to be a registration anywhere. His nickname was "Vic" or "king" so the Victor you found is probably him.
Thanks for all your help
Cheers
Karen
