Journals are intended to assist new researchers locate family lines in Australia and should only be used as a guide for follow up research and record searches as intended.
Due to spelling and informant errors appearing in the records, typo errors and my misreading of the records mistakes must be expected. Errors will be corrected when detected.

Thanks Tonkin, I really appreciate the effort. These details are essentially the same as what I had collected with the exception of the later deaths because I had collected most from the Digger database. It is good to cross reference and confirm names and dates.

Unfortunately I dont have much information on Janet who was my great grandfathers older sister except for her addresses in Fitzroy, birth and death. It appears that she was either illiterate or poorly educated judging from her very scrappy handwriting on her father's will.

If anyone else out there has further details regarding the life of Vivian Ripper and Janet Cairns it would be great to hear from you.

Hi again Tonkin.

I forgot to mention that there may be another child to Vivian Ripper and Janet Cairns missing from the list above :

Hy (Henry?) Vivian Ripper
b: 1899 Prahran
No marriage or death details
Sourced from the Digger Database (Federation Index)

If correct is prior to the marriage of Vivian and Janet in 1901.

Thanks again

Thank you camcairns.

I did see a Henry V RIPPER in the cemetery records and knew he must have been connected, but I forgot to go back to check the death records.
