Looking for Robert John Clark of England? 1831?

Query by Jamunjie

I am trying to trace birth records of Robert John Clark presumably born in England in 1831.
Any information would be gratefully accepted as records here in Tasmania are sketchy.
His mother or father was an Indigenous Australian.
Does anyone out there know anything?

See what Rootschatters can dig up for you, some of them have access to the early Pioneers Indexes etc. Just register as a new user, it is free, and goto the Emigrants to Australia board.

Hi allycat, thanks for replying to my journal. I am fairly new at this and it is very addictive I must say.
It seems clark is a very popular name worldwide. I will check this site out definitely and let you know if I come up with anything.
thanks again Jamunjie

Dear Jamunjie, You're welcome. Yes CLARK(E) is an extremely popular and common surname, like SMITH and JONES etc.

Just remember it is easy to go off on a 'wild goose chase' and/or bark up the wrong tree. The best way to avoid this in tracing your genealogy is to start with oneself and work backwards. Surely there will be a Death Certificate of Robert John CLARK, marriage cert. We all leave a paper trail. Also, try and include in data that you submit online - spouse name, and parents names, siblings, dates if possible, or if you don't know just guess and put either a C in front which stands for Circa (C1896), or write abt (abt 1896), which stands for about. Women are generally written about with their maiden surname or nee their maiden surname.

Please make sure you protect the privacy of the living on the internet.

Do searches here on familytreecircles in the top right-hand corner for these key words: free, freebies, etiquette, aboriginal, tasmania to see journals I have submitted re tracing your family tree.

The rootschat site has been a great help to myself in the past, I have the same username 'allycat' as on here.
