Looking for a friend whose mother was born on 16th August, 1930.  Her mother was listed as Keitha Isabel Browne from Tasmania.  She called her daughter Shirley Margaret.  Any information would be appreciated.

Hi Lyn,

I have sent a message to my friend but she hasn't got back to me yet.  I  did a bit more research and found

Keitha Isabel Brown born 10/6/1903 in Burnie Tasmania she was Christened on 10th August 1903.

her parents were Henry John Brown and Catherine Brown .

so we know that she had a daughter Shirley Margaret born 16th August 1930 ( I think in Melbourne)

and your information a son born in 1931 ( adopted)

I hope that this informTion helps you.

Shirley Margaret (I don't know what her adopted surname waS) but she married a Norman Newbold.( don't know if the spelling of the name is right) 

 also came across another Keitha Isabel Bogie (could be a married name) in 1931 she was living in Victoria. I then found that she had marred a Arthur Coutts Thorburn (he died in 1934)  

Keitha Isabel Thorburn was then listed in the Census over the years from 1936-1980 living in Victoria) In 1980 she was living in Balaclava Victoria 

 this may not be the same Keitha Isabel but Keitha is a very unusual name so it is a possibility!

Hi Lynn,
I took the last message with my friend and her sisters email addresses down from the site as someone from Ancestrallinks contacted her by email suggesting that she join their site for a fee. I was worried that it was some sort of scam so told her to ignore it.  I believe that you have contacted her by email so now have her email address.  If for some reason you can't contact her just leave a message here for me again.
 
thanks

Hi Lynn, I wrote this message for a work friend ages ago.  She wanted to find out information for her mother Shirley.  From memory I thought that Shirley was born  in Melbourne and then she heard that Keitha went to Tasmania.  Well Shirley lives in Melbourne now and I think she was raised in Melbourne.

 

i will have to contact my friend. Maybe I could give you her email address and you could correspond with her directly.  I will contact her and get back to you

Regards Julie
