Comment on Easier Access to South Australian Court Records by Alona Tester http://www.gouldgenealogy.com/2013/07/easier-access-to-south-australian-court-records/comment-page-1/#comment-824531 Sun, 22 Mar 2015 09:46:23 +0000 http://www.gouldgenealogy.com/?p=13622#comment-824531 Hi June, sorry but we don’t offer research services. There are plenty that do, but you do need to be prepared to pay. If you want recommendations, please let me know.

I presume you’ve been in touch with State Records SA, the State Library of SA, Genealogy SA, the South Australian Courts, the Lands Titles Office, the SA Police Historical Society, the SA Maritime Museum, the Lutheran Archives? They are all important South Australian archives and hold an immense amount of records, and may have something. And I presume you’ve looked on Trove at the old newspapers. If you want something more specific you will need to get in touch with an researcher. For one in SA you can contact Graham Jaunay (www.jaunay.com).

Comment on Easier Access to South Australian Court Records by June Phillips http://www.gouldgenealogy.com/2013/07/easier-access-to-south-australian-court-records/comment-page-1/#comment-824412 Sun, 22 Mar 2015 03:04:11 +0000 http://www.gouldgenealogy.com/?p=13622#comment-824412 For ten years we have been researching in all the normal places SAGHS Lutheran Archives, church records, libraries and everything in between. We have spent a fortune. We have two pressing questions which we just cannot find the answers on, from Queensland which is where I live and do not travel easily. We have nearly completed the history of the Wark family and have had an enormous job undoing all the guesses that have been made and some even written into the history records but are incorrect.

Question 1.
Johann Heinrich Wark born in 1816 Thedinghausen Germany was naturalized in 1847 we are unable to find a soured record for his arrival. We do know his brother wife and 4 children came out in 1846 on the Pauline but there is no evidence to support he too came out on that boat. There is nothing in any marriage birth death records of Johann Heinrich’s arrival but there may be something mentioned in the court transcripts of his insolvency in 1858 a farmer from Hope Valley. Or his naturalization application in 1847 or national records for 1872 but I am unable to find a source for either I have tried and tried.

Question 2.
Charles Robertson first appeared in 1879 when an add appeared in the SA newspaper for a marriage to Sophia Gruneberg . I am unable to find a record for this marriage and Sophia being from a Very faithful German family and post marriage records would indicate that there would have been a marriage . We can not find when and where Charles came to South Australia from Sweden Germany Capetown as all are mentioned as being his history. A court record does mention a ship but that ship did not come to Australia during the years mentioned. 2 things we need here marriage details parents names and his arrival details.

Is there anyone in your organization that like to find the unfindable. I have given in and its too hard for me. I have spent far too much trying to find the answers but they must be out there. Do you have a volunteer will to have a go. We will gladly supply you on completion our record books of 2000 pages on the German WARK and Rosenthal families but we cant complete these which are very close , until we solve these two puzzle’s we are beat and begging but do not have much money to spend on paying researchers.

They can talk you through it.

Even the small grants to local family histories and museums have gone. It is a desperate situation in so many places. If everyone does a little, much can be achieved.

What about our history and heritage and our pioneers. South australia will have no history. We have plenty of land and space j this country so no need to destroy a cemetery. This in incomprehensible madness
