I am looking for any info re adoptions in Victoria around 1912 to 1920.
The adoptive parents were William Holman and Ellen Staples Holman, they lived in Clunes, and he was a minister/member of the Clunes Methodist Sunday School, and they adopted Elizabeth then her brother George not long after.
My info is that George was either born in Bendigo or Metian in victoria 17/4/1912. His adoptive father had a grocery/store in Clunes...
I had a medalian that had an inscription :William Holman from the Independent order of Rechabites around early 1900's or late 1800's...

My grandmother was adopted out and her biological parents names were Pauline Carmen Whitehouse / Wright or Louis Australia Wright.
Pauline passed away shortly after my grandmothers birth which was in 1924 but im not sure when Louis passed away (or even if he has passed away). I think she was born in Paddington, NSW, Australia but cannot be sure and dont have any DOB details.
Louis served in WW1. I think he was born on 9th October 1883 in Victoria, Australia.
Pauline and Louis married in Bourke, NSW, Australia in 1914.
I believe they had 4 children, Jack Inglis, Colin Edward & Joyce as well as my grandmother who was named Doone Sheila (when adopted her name was changed to Joan Thelma).
Anything you can offer to assist with locating blood relatives of Pauline or Louis would be fantastic as we are hoping to create a family tree but cannot trace back any further than that.
