If your Horace Haber signed up with the Australian military there’s likely to be records at both the National Archives of Australia, and the Australian War Memorial. You can browse through their site if you wish, or simply phone with your query:

Comment on Ryerson Index Hits 5 Million Australian Death and Obituary Records by Dianne Berry http://www.gouldgenealogy.com/2015/06/ryerson-index-hits-5-million-australian-death-and-obituary-records/comment-page-1/#comment-861046 Mon, 29 Jun 2015 08:51:50 +0000 http://www.gouldgenealogy.com/?p=18151#comment-861046 Wondering if anyone can help please. I am looking for birth of Willian Roe Reynolds (Morvan Tas) by 1822
That is all I can find in web sites, the by 1822 is because he married Elizabrth Saunders in 1856 his age was 34 she was 15 or 16.
I have tried all the records that Launceston Library have suggested but still unable to find him, thought he might have been married prior to 1856 but that just took me round in circles unless I can find birth date.
Any help greatly appreciated.

Comment on Who Do You Think You Are? UK Season 12 (2015) by David (Dave) Sieff http://www.gouldgenealogy.com/2015/06/who-do-you-think-you-are-uk-season-12-2015/comment-page-1/#comment-860779 Sun, 28 Jun 2015 22:02:40 +0000 http://www.gouldgenealogy.com/?p=18131#comment-860779 I’m pleased to hear that another series of WDYTYA will be aired soon in the UK,and that we will eventually see it in South Africa,but probably quite a long time later – I’m not sure why there should be such a long delay ( ? ! ) – and I always look forward to each episode.
While it is very interesting to follow the research and results of famous personalities’ ancestry,family history and genealogy,I would like to see the same done for perhaps one or two “ordinary” people per series,whose ancestry might be as complicated and interesting,or even more so; they might,for instance have some orally – or even documentary – handed down knowledge of some really famous/infamous ancestry and/or family history,which could be equally of interest to viewers – it’s after all the ancestry which is the more interesting and intriguing aspect of the programmes.
Has this ever been considered,and if rejected,for which reasons ? I would appreciate a response.
Kind regards,Dave Sieff ( member of a local genealogical society in Johannesburg,South Africa)

Comment on Ryerson Index Hits 5 Million Australian Death and Obituary Records by John Graham http://www.gouldgenealogy.com/2015/06/ryerson-index-hits-5-million-australian-death-and-obituary-records/comment-page-1/#comment-860215 Sat, 27 Jun 2015 05:15:12 +0000 http://www.gouldgenealogy.com/?p=18151#comment-860215 Thanks for the great publicity!

To put the record straight, Joyce didn’t “start” the index. The index was an initiative of the Sydney DPS in October 1998, and originally we intended to only index current papers as they were published. Joyce’s donation, in May 1999, gave us the impetus to index both backwards and forwards from our 1998 commencement date.

Comment on R.I.P. Marianne Eastgate MA (Hons) Dip FHS by Selwyn Retschlag http://www.gouldgenealogy.com/2010/09/r-i-p-marianne-eastgate-ma-hons-dip-fhs/comment-page-1/#comment-859874 Fri, 26 Jun 2015 07:47:30 +0000 http://www.gouldgenealogy.com/?p=1749#comment-859874 Today I left a message with Griffith library as to where I would be able to contact Marianne. Sadly I have only just now found That Marianne has passed away. Maryanne wrote the biography of Francis North MLA .. I am the great great grandson of Francis North and Margaret Elizabeth North (nee Glissan). I have been able to locate my GG parents burial sites. Currently, I am constructing a more recent update of the North Family. This is being done with the intent of passing on to our remaining children and grandchildren their family heritage. While I recognise the passing of Maryanne, I notice that she was a researcher of other family members of the North family. I am interested in the titles that relate to the North family and would be grateful to receive a listing of the titles Maryanne worked on and whether they are able to be purchased. I have also bought the biography of Francis North MLA some considerable time ago. I am also interested in the organisations that Maryanne was affiliated with respect to family histories. This interest is with a view to membership. Currently I am attempting to discover when my maternal grandmother Sarah North(nee Moore ) arrived from Northern Ireland. Being a UK citizen she would have a birth record and some documentation regarding her passage to Australia somewhere about 1911 to 1902. She married Francis North’s grandson Arthur Francis North in 1915. My mother was born in 1919. My grandmothers arrival date, disembarkation location and any other documents are proving difficult to find.
However, I cannot but admire Maryanne’s accuracy and attention to historical detail as applied to the Francis North biography. Any advice you are able to supply will be gratefully received.
Kindest Regards, Selwyn
