born Martha Lydia LOVEDAY Hobart, Tasmania 1878

Hello fellow detectives,

This is my paternal grandmother who I didn't meet. I believe she left this particular marriage, and I have tried to trace what her next moves were. My father had little information and she was not spoken of very much.
At the time of her marriage to my GF she was living in Sydney. I believe she may have travelled overseas, as there appears to be no death records here in Australia and I have some indication in records that she may have gone to UK, remarried, and then Canada. But it is all a bit shaky name wise and I will get to it eventually, but I'm just putting the call out to other LOVEDAY descendants in particular, who may know something. It appears that some siblings may have gone to Vic from Tasmania and lived out their lives there. Any information about any relatives would be great.
Martha was the daughter of Thomas Loveday & Mary Ann Ware.

Thank you

Donaldsons of Dunedin

Hi,
I'm the great granddaughter of William Donaldson and Eliza Mercer of Dunedin. I am the granddaughter of Jean Donaldson. I was born and live in Australia possibly only because my grandmother migrated here in about 1918 I believe. Are there any descendants still left in NZ? Or in Australia? from branches of the same siblings. My GM was one of 17 children. I did not meet her as she died before I was born; or any other siblings/relatives. I believe my mother was in touch with a 'Cousin Edgar" in NZ, for sometime throughout her life and also earlier on Mercer Donaldson who was a dancer. I would love to hear any stories and history about the family- and the farm. Ironically, I have been to both their birth places in Scotland, but not to Dunedin although I have been twice to NZ. I also know one of the brothers went to Patagonia, and also I would like to know about a younger Donaldson brother that my mother spoke of who drowned near home. Also, I think my mother or brother, was in touch with a Neil Donaldson.

Thank you
