When asking for help it always useful to give some dates.
There are in excess of 2000 Elizabeth Jane Sibley entries (many in Ireland,) so it is impossible without some dates.

I usually begin research at < familysearch.org > as they have fantastic world coverage going back generations.

If you think a particular individual looks likely then you should apply for a copy certificate to verify and proceed from there.

Give it a try as finding your family yourself must be a greater thrill than having handed to you by a stranger surely?

Let us know how you get on, or if you get stuck.

Hi Barbara
My sister has been doing our family trees and started looking at my husbands family - the Hays - too. Hebert Inglewood Lever was his (my husband is Keith Eric Hay born 11-3-1944) grandfather (so not sure where you come in)? Keith's mother was Olive Amy Lever. apparently her father married twice - his second wife being Isobel (?). Keith's mum didnt get on with the step-mother.
Anyway Keith remembers visiting his grandfather and remembers the picture theatre in Papakura. He said he was a lovely man, who did beautiful carpentry. Keith had his fabulous chisel set.
not sure how this works - hope this comment reaches you.

My father was HERBERT RONALD LEVER.He was HERBERT INGLEWOOD'S oldest son.I am the youngest of his children.I think my brother Herb who lived at Tauakau,was in contact with Keith when he was alive.I only started doing the family after Herb died.Dad was always called RON.I met my auntie Olive for the first time when she was old and unable to speak which was sad.I keep in touch with her daughter Marilyn.If you want to get in touch,my email is barbaramickle3@bigpond.com.au.I live in Australia,but was bought up in Tauranga.Yes he did some lovely work he made a dolls house for my sister Mary made to scale of their home.He made me a folding chair.Love to hear from you Barb.

Ada Minnie, b. 1871, was actually daughter of Edmund George Woolcott 1834-1910, and Mary Ann Gilbert 1844-1890. He was son of Thomas Woolcott 1801-1855 and Elizabeth Jane Sibley, b. 1808. He was son of William Woolcott III, 1769-1821, and Catherine Ann Corbett 1770-1842. He son of William Woolcottt Jr. 1742-1793, and Ann Maria Baker 1742- c. 1773. Do you know if any Woolcotts from this family are still around?
