Looking for Edward John Caldwell, born 1871 in Nerring, Victoria, Australia.

Query by ejhoy

G'day folks. My name is Ernest James(I like to be called James)Hoy and I am 65 yoa, retired and live in Ellenbrook, Western Australia. This is a fantastic site and I am most greatful to all who bring it to us. Now, this is my first time so please be gentle with me.

I first gained an interest in genealogy some 15 years ago and enjoyed it immensley until such time as the big "C" came aknocking on my door and belted me around very baddly. It was a long, difficult buttle, but, HEY" I'm alive! I have been dormant for several years now but am at last ready to get back into the game and look forward to a long and sucessful relationship with you all.

I would like to research the HOY family but, for now I am trying to trace my maternal grandfather, Edward John (Ned) CALDWELL. He was born in Nerring, Victoria, Australia in 1871 and spent his working life as a mining engineer. He worked in Victoria, before moving to Kalgoorlie in Western Australia for the gold. Ned died on 6th June, 1935 in Midland Junction, WA.

Again, thanks everyone, I will most certainly keep in touch. Bye for now.

Dear James, Welcome to FamilyTreeCircles. Ok, goto this website link RootsChat.com - Emigrants to Australia board.

Join up as a free member, keep the same username as on here in case descendants/other researchers are looking for you.

Post a new topic (like a journal here) 'VIC BDM Lookup Pls CALDWELL family 1870s' and include all your known information. Lots of Rootschatters have the VIC BDMs on cd-rom and are most helpful.

I, too, have HOY and HOEY ancestors. If you click on HOY above, you will see a surname wiki page with heaps of websites for you to sift through now you have time and good health.

Best wishes,
Alison from Queensland.
