Hi Amors,
I just wanted to say hello to you all as we are relitives. My Husbands twice great Grandmother was Ivy Jane Amor (daughter of William and Lousia Amor. I think this site is fantastic. I am doing our (Nugents) Family history and Branched out to the Amor side and i was lucky enought to stumble across this information. It was all done for me! I am However a little Stuck of James Nugent (Ivy's husband) as he was orphaned at 12 yrs and we have no recordings of his parents names.
Thanks for setting up the site as i will be passing it onto the rest of the Nugent Family.

Dear a enugent1, Welcome to FamilyTreeCircles. We all have the pleasure of this wonderful free genealogy site thanks to the webmaster, Scott.... a chap from the USofA.

I have been researching the AMORs for a considerable while, and posted this extract from my family tree.

Regarding 'James NUGENT' my notes say this could be a possible record for him:-


IGI Individual Record FamilySearch? International Genealogical Index v5.0
Southwest Pacific
Search Results | Download | Pedigree

James Nugent

04 AUG 1892 Goulburn, New South Wales, Australia
19 NOV 1956 Sydney, New South Wales, Australia
21 NOV 1956 Forbes, New South Wales, Australia

AND NSW Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages

click on SEARCH NOW

BIRTH: Can only find this record, IGI could be wrong.

Reg.No.17667/1873 birth of NUGENT, JAMES WILLIAM parents names: JAMES WILLIAM & MARY ANNE at QUEANBEYAN NSW.

Q.Any idea when/where Ivy Jane passed away?

My great grandfather Henry (known as Harry) AMOR would have been the younger brother of William AMOR that married Louisa Ann PRIDMORE. Note: The PRIDMORE tree goes back to 1650 England. AMORs goe back to the 1500s in Wiltshire.

If you goto this website link, there is this fellow Gary KEMP who is a descendant of Ellen AMOR (sister of your William and my Henry AMOR) who married into the MITCHELL family. Gary is just starting to add my AMOR data to his website.

There is Torrie Allan research online in family trees at GenesReunited but you would have to register first as a member of the site (small annual membership fee). Look for Rosemary Watters nee Gee, descendant.

Hafa Adai Amors,
I would love to find out how far is my grandparents clan.
From my mothers side of the family is "Bandiola" which is my grandmother's family name and my grandfathers family name is "Amor". The last time i checked that the "Bandiola" lineage was found by two genealogist brothers "Arturo and Alberto Caraffa. Saying that the lineage came from Aragon (Spain) spread to Chile and Philippines.
My Grandmothers name is Paulina Nietes Bandiola Amor married to..
my grandfather Mansueto Amor.

Any ideas?
I have search where their name originated from.
