Dear Elise, Hi there. You can find out all this information and more if you sign up as a free member of rootschat. Goto the link below, have a little read of what others have written.

Generally, start off with a subject heading like "1841 Census Lookup please ADAMS family Doncaster", then type all the factual info that you are aware of (so as to not waste other genealogists time). All these lookups are done as a favour to others.

Rootschat.com - England - Yorkshire (West Riding) Lookup Requests

Even if your family arrived in Australia in 1841, they would have left behind parents and/or siblings and people generally didn't move round too much so you might be able to find them in Doncaster.

If you want more information than this, you will have to put your family tree on line say at one of the free websites out there - tribalpages is pretty good. Google it and you will find website.

Good luck. Any more queries, just send me a personal message.

Make sure you read my journal on Australia : Genealogy in Victoria, etc.

Al in QLD.

Hi Elise, I am interested in the Adams family from Campsall/Sutton, Doncastor, England. Benjamin Adams and Sarah Eyre arrived Melbourne 1841. I see in 2006 you were too. Still interested, I am a descendent of Benjamin and Sarah. Happy to share information. regards Dave

Hi Dave, so good to hear from a fellow descendent at long last!
I too have heaps of info happy to share, not sure how to go about it though.I suppose I can start by updating my journal, which I will do soon.
Regards Elise

Hi Dave, I was really pleased & surprised to see your journal, it's great info. I'll be able to pay a visit next time I'm in Melbourne.
Unfortunately I'm still travelling and don't have access to all my paperwork to be able to update my journal properly.
