Thanks Ellie.

How do we decide which is correct?

I'd expect an extracted record to be accurate and the BDM to be free of major errors.

Thanks Val.

I think the extracted batch records of birth and baptisms would be correct and that there are errors on Vic. BDM. I'll email them and see how long it takes for a reply.

Yeah, interesting.. The original Vic births don't appear to have the 1867 birth as transcribed by FS [at least not with those parents]. If they did, it likely there would be a corresponding death between that birth and the 1870 birth, given those parents.

The original for 1870 is thus "1870,01119,,Campbell,Samuel Alfred,John William,Ferguson Jane,Bung," and is similar to the type noted above. It would therefore appear that the 1870 reg. is correct.

Using the same process as the previous post [post #7] this would be correct "1858,16891,,Campbell,Maynes Andrew,John Willia,Ferguson Jane,Ballarat,"

I think the BDM is wrong Geoff.

If it was 1870 then what about this

Ernest James Ferguson b. 21 Jun 1870 c. 31 Jul 1876
John William CAMPBELL & Jane
Batch: C003436
Birth 1124/1870 CAMPBELL Ernest CAMPBELL John William Jane FERGUSON b. Bungaree, Vic.

I'll have a look at that one, Dave... But it is odd that there is no record in 1867 in the BDM with those parents..

Interesting there are only 5 records between them :rolleyes:

A late registration. ??

But a late registration can't explain a 1858 birth reg with a 1859 birth date on baptism record.

I don't even know where they were baptised as they were not all born in the same place.

There seems to be no list of the Australian IGI batch numbers. C003436 looks to be a huge batch. Just says Victoria.

381-400 of 7,179 results for Batch Number:C00343-6

Some have image icons but not William John nor Maynes, nor Samuel.
