The beginning of my Warren research
My name is Michael Andrew Warren.
With a surname like Warren, the tiniest attempt to discovering one's family history can be frustrating. Especially as I watch my fiancee, who's surname is Zoldosh, uncover nearly four hundred years of family history... and not only names, but photos, records and stories.
Another battle I face is that I am from Australia, she was born in the United States which means it is much easier for her to locate family records.
So, to get to the point, I'll offer a very basic history, which I hoepfully will be able to add to.
My father is Robert William Warren, his father was Alfred Gordon Warren. Afred, my pa, died in 2006. At the time of his death he was married to Emily Warren (not sure of maiden name as yet) which was the woman my dad always considered to be his mother. However, Alfred had a previous marriage to a woman who was actually my father's mother, I don't know know her name.
My mother was Vickie Maureen Delley. She died in 1985 and is burried in Stawell, Victoria, Australia. Her parents were Phyllis May (Repper)Delley and 'Laurie' Delley who died in 1997-98. He also is buried in Stawell, Victoria Australia. Stawell is just near Hall's Gap, where my grandfather 'Laurie' was a logger. Our family has a small bridge named after us called 'Delley's Bridge'. Unfortunately, this does not make the process of family research any easier.
