My name is Peter Dabelstein
and I started this site.
This site was created using MyHeritage.com. This is a great system that allows anyone like you and I to create a private site for their family, build their family tree and share family photos. If you have any comments or feedback about this site, please click here to contact me.
Our family tree is posted online on this site! There are 870 names in our family site. The earliest event is the birth of Hans Dabelstein
(1555). The most recent event is the death of Joyce Alice Kirk (Robinson)
(June 6 2012).
The site was last updated on May 14 2013, and it currently has 41 registered member(s). If you wish to become a member too, please click here. Enjoy!
There are many people and sources who need to be acknowledged in the collection of information presented here - some I have forgotten and I apologise to them. As time allows I will sift through the piles of paper and add to these acknowledgements but for the present the four main areas of research are (partly) acknowledged. Information for associated families has often come from the same sources:
The Daniels - The family history "Gindi: A place to call home". My Grandmother, Lillah Myrtle Daniels for the notes and photos she left (thanks Steve for the loan). Aug 2010: An early source has been rediscovered - it is, I believe, the work of Max Clews from 1996, which my Grandmother passed onto me, which with the "Gindi" book, has formed the basis for the 'Daniels' information.
The Dabelsteins - Thanks to Gregory, Daniel, Maree and Lewis for copies of pictures and information, and my Grandfather Ronald Edward Dabelstein who "forked out a few bob' in the early days to cover the cost of some BDM cerificates.
The Frosts - A large amount of information has come from the work of A.K. Frost who wrote the "Frost-Frazier Family History'. Also thanks to Joy, Charmaine, John and the Armidale Family History society (for starters).
The Chalkers - Many sources. The work of Peita Lafski needs to be acknowledge as one of my early sources; The Monaro Pioneers project is acknowledge, and recomended for their ongoing work. The Family History societies of Goulburn and Mittagong for the ever willingness to help. John McColgan's book "Southern Highlands Story", James Jervis 'Ä History of the Berrima District", and Bryce & Marie Chalker's "William Charker/Chalker or Chauker".
Grave information - from many available sources of cemetery information including the Monaro district, St. John's Parramatta (Parramatta Historical Society), St. Paul's Emu Plains & St. Mary Magdalene cemetery inscriptions (Nepean FHS) and special mention to the "Cemindex" site.
There are many more people to thank who, for the present I can't remember for which I apologies (drop me a line to jog the memory), I will try to acknowledge as I sort through piles of papers, notes etc.
Thank you to "new' family members, past, present and future who are sharing their work through this site. Really appreciated.
Finally, to my immediate family, all, who have put up with this stuff for so long, and it will continue!
I have decided to add some of my ex-wifes family as I have the information available and I think it is fair that my children are able to view their heritage. Much of the information for this tree is from the family, with additional information found on BDM sites (NSW & NZ), The Monaro Project site, the Rootsweb site of Peter Richardson, and I'm sure there are others that for the moment I have forgotten (with apologies).
For the German ancestory of the Dabelstein's I would like to acknowledge the work of Sylvia Leilich on Genealogy.net (if my limited Gerrman is correct) and supported by information from the Church of LDS family search site.
