Sorry folks ! Seeking details for siblings of my GRANDFATHER Henry William Burns

His father Henry William Burns was born in Boston Lincolnshire in 1832 arrived in SA about 1850.
He married Helen Bell May (born in ? Scoland ) at Hynam 13 January then selected land around Edenhope.My grandfather Henry Wiliam 1857-1888 was the first of 10 children. I have only 8 listed.

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.

William Shaw & Mary Jordan: Burns family history

Like to find information about my great-grandparents William Shaw born 1779 Tipperary Ireland & Mary Jordan born19/03/1820 Wexford Ireland. They married Geelong Victoria 1841 I believe. Possibly William was a seaman ? Anyway would be great to know something of their early years in Ireland & wherever they landed & lived on arrival in Australia. Both died in 1885 & are buried in Harrow Victoria.
