O'Donnell Births Deaths and Marriages

Journal by MsMeridy

I recently joined our local Family History Group in Benalla.

I have been able to access their CD's and found large numbers of Australian O'Donnells.

I have printed out 200 names from each of the following indexes :-
(tho there are many more names on each index that is the maximum allowed for printing)

Births Deaths and Marriages for Victoria from 1889 - 1901 called the Digger Federation Index.

Births Deaths and Marriages from Digger Edwardian Index for Victoria 1902 - 1913.

Death Index from Digger dates range from 1921 - 1985.

These records show the parent's names if known, the location of the event whether it be a birth, a death or a marriage and the registration number of the event. I am sure we are all used to seeing either BRN, DRN or MRN. It also shows the age of the person listed at the time of the event.

All good viewing. This helps you put the right parents with the correct children and gives the maiden name of the mothers.

So if you require some information about the O'Donnells I think I can help you and if I don't have it with me today I can go back to the group and do some more searching.

Contact me if you need my help.

Hi Meredith, My Great greast grandmother Mary O'Donnell from Kilbane Co. Clare married Andrew Kevin(Caven)in 1852 and travelled to Melbourne with him and her parents later that year on the Marco Polo. Do you have any connections please?
Thank you

Hey Mariane,

For me to find your Mary O'Donnell I would have to look at her married name of Caven in the BDM indexes. Which I can do for you next time I go into town.

Our family of O'Donnells came from Omagh,County Tyrone. I don't know how close the counties are.
The original grandaddy is Hamilton Lewis O'Donnell.

If your family lived, had children and died in Victoria then there should be records of those events and registration numbers.

I have heard of the Marco Polo ship. There are ways of checking ship records there too.

Do you know who the parents of Mary O'Donnell were?

Hmm keep in touch.

Do you need specific information or just interested to see if there was a connection to my clan?
