Gambier on Family Tree Circles
Journals and Posts
Any newspaper items, photos etc about my paternal grandmother & life in those times.
I do know she was born 1860 in Hotspur Vic.also believe her parents William Shaw & Mary Shaw nee Jordan both died at Harrow Vic. Any info of them too would help fill in picture especially of my grandmother's early years.
I only know she was born in 1903 in ? Victoria. Her parents John Francis SHAW & Ellen GALLAGHER were married in the RC church in Hamilton, Victoria & at a later stage lived in Mount Gambier. I'm interested to know where in Victoria & if perhaps the family moved elsewhere before moving to Mount Gambier. She was later the 1st wife of my father Gordon Henry BURNS, born in Edenhope, Victoria. They were married in 04/02/1920 & lived in Mount Gambier until she passed away in St Vincent's hospital, Melbourne, Victoria.
Any small missing detail appreciated as it fills in significant part of my father's life too.
Can someone fill in details and background for my grandfather Henry William Burns born Edenhope Victoria 1857?Where di his parents come from?
Do any PRETLOVE ( John ) family members have photos of Granny Jane, & her 3 children from marriage to Henry William Buns ?
My father Gordon Henry BURNS was only a baby when his mother was widowed. Other siblings were Mary Burns(Wilks)& Henry William Burns. I have never seen a photo of Granny Jane & only me her once as a small child. Likewise I have never seen any childhood photos of my Dad Gordon.
Photo was taken at Aunty Mary's 80th birthday a Benayeo. It shows Mary, Gordon, Lilian & the Pretlove brothers, Harry, Perc. & George.
I would appreciate so much if any photos are still around.
My father GORDON HENRY BURNS was born in Edenhope Victoria. I'm interested to know of newspapers in the 1800s from the Edenhope, Harrow district, or any other source of information of the life of those times.I know many old newspapers have been "digitalized" but have no idea what they were called.
Jane was born at Hotspur Victoria died at Edenhope Victoria. I'm a grand-daughter,Janet Lucas nee Burns ( father Gordon Burns ) & interested to know details of her early years/life. Also any info re the times in the location of her early years.
I'd like to trace other Shaw family members. William Shaw 1812-1885 married Mary Jordan, daughter Jane Shaw married Henry William Burns 1857-1888. Also Josephine Alphonse Shaw married Gordon Burns.
My great grandfather Karl Ockar Schiefer was born in Crimmitschau Sachsen Germany 29 September 1881. He died in Kleinhessen, Sachsen Germany on 15 March 1921. How can I find more descendants. 1.
On 29 July He married Wilhemine Leithold born 29 September 1853 in Tonehausen. She died on 4 January 1916. Thes details were in trace made about 30 years ago and I seem unable to get any further in the present. What is the best way to discover these ones from Germany, or maybe later descendants who migrated to other lands.
