Hi quirky, starting having a bit of a looksee for you. Found as follows:-

Male Family

Event(s):
Birth:
Christening:
Death:
Burial:

Marriages:
Spouse: HANNAH COUNSEL Family
Marriage:
26 APR 1893 , Tasmania, Australia

TIP
Sometimes it is well worth it to purchase birth death and marriage certificates of siblings/children of one's ancestors as sometimes more information is revealed. It's worked for me.

BIRTH

Have you tried the rootschat.com site to try and find James DOOLEY's baptismal records anywhere in Oxfordshire?

MARRIAGE

Ditto for marriage record. Rootschatters should be able to assist.

TASMANIAN LOOKUP OFFERS

Goto the rootschat.com site again, Emigrants to Australia board. Click on "Tasmanian Lookup Offers" by Joppo1968. This rootschatter has the Tasmanian Pioneer CD (BDM's 1803 - 1899) & Tasmanian Federation CD (Births 1900 - 1919, Deaths & Marriages 1900 - 1930.) And states that if you're willing to wait for you're requests, they're more than willing to look up your Tassie ancestors!!!

CONVICT RECORDS

Do your James DOOLEY and Margaret RYAN appear at Lesley Uebel Claim a Convict - Convicts to Australia site? Have a look.

**********

That's all I can come up with for now.

Good luck,
Alison QLD.

Hi Alison
Quirky eh I havent been called that since I was at school Thanks for you info.I have been using rootschat and I must thankyou for putting me onto them they have been a wonderful help in many areas not just the Dooley's. That is where I got the census info. James Dooley's death is yet to be found. I have someone looking in Vic as it does not seem to be in Tas. My gt grandmother is Annie Leer nee Dooley and my brother is looking to purchase her cert. if unsuccessful I'll try your rootschat man. Thanks again. Shauna
