Seeking information on Eliza's parents Robert SOMERS and Sarah (surname unknown) from Ireland.
Eliza (18 years old) and her sister Mary A Somers (22 years old) arrived in Victoria
on the 5th July 1852 aboard the Chowringhee. In 1854 Eliza married Matthew Clairville ROBSON
and went on to have 12 children.
I am searching information on my father John Joseph Latimer know as Jack born around 1914 he was killed in a car accident around 1943-1944. He had 2 or 3 brothers I am unsure of how many brothers as they had nicknames one of which was Bunty and one sister. At time of his death he was living in North Brunswick with my mother, my older sister and his father who worked for the railways. His sister and her husband had dairies in Brunswick and had a show horse, then went on to be licensee of a hotel. One of his brothers lived in Coburg and another I think in Collingwood. I would welcome any information whatever no matter how small.
My grandmother Nellie Josephine Rowe (Irvine, nee McPhee), had many brothers and sisters we never knew of. She was a jillaroo and then a housekeeper for many families around Australia. Especially Hawthorn in Melbourne, and Alberton in Gippsland. Her parents Jessie and 'Pop' McPhee lived in Wandiligong until the 1950's and 1960's when they died. All replies will be answered.
Looking for the decendents of the 3 brothers (Sibilants) fom in Marsialle in France in 1800's. Believe one went to Mauritius, one to South Africa and one went to Australia. Though have heard one may have ended up on St Helene.

Hi, I am trying to find the ancestors of Annie (ANN) Ellen Sellars, married to Harold Sellars, both late of 20 Baker St St Kilda, Victoria, Australia. They had 4 children: Barry, Ian, Warick and Brenda. I am particularly interested in finding the link between the Sellars family and the Pauley family of South Australia. Any help would be most appreciated.
Does anyone have a record of Kate Arnold (nee Roetzel) born 1854 Strasbourg, France. Married William Arnold in the UK and had two children, Elizabeth (Fels) & William before immigrating to Victoria, Australia where she met my great grandfather John Wesley Wollpert and together they had two children, John George Wollpert & Charles Jacoben Wollpert. I know that she was Jewish, but have very little info on her. Can find no record of her death here in Australia, but I know that she was living in or around the Wodonga area when she died. Maybe she remarried?????? Any help would be greatly appreciated. I have been searching for her for ten years now. Thanks, Pamela
