Query by lakey

Looking for descendants of James Henry McDonald born 5 May 1881 in Albury NSW to Hector McDonald and Mary Barry. James married Alice Rose Anne Frith nee Trueman nee Harris in Tumbarumba NSW. in 1924. When James died in 1956 in an Old peoples home in Young NSW, his death certificate listed four children John c1928, Florence c1930, Mary c1931 and Jean c1933. When Alice died in 1940 these children were NOT listed on her death certificate. Alice had 7 children to Trueman and 2 children to Frith. Benjamin Trueman was the informant on the death cert.

I've found that Death Certificates are sometimes inaccurate due to the informant at the time.

Thanks allycat, yes I have also found that, but she had 9 children to her two previous husbands and one of them was the informant on her death cert. I just wish there was a way of checking births past 1908 without having to pay for everything. I thought James may have been married prior but the birth dates are after he married Alice.

Luckily you asked, there is a way to check births after 1908 in NSW , goto RootsChat register as a new user if you haven't already (free site). Then find their Australia board, and post a lookup request with new topic heading titled 'NSW births lookup after 1908' and in body of message, ask the replier to send you a message via the personal messaging system in case some of the children are still alive. Also have a look at their Australia - Resources section, and click on NSW resources for futher reading.
