Oh wow, a Cheeseman! My grandmother's (Florence Rebecca Trowbridge) sister - Edith Louisa Trowbridge married Edwin George Cheeseman. I have a photo of their 4 children, also of Robert & Sophia. Sophia was born 1867 in Summertown, died 19.3.1902 in North Adelaide and buried at West Tce Cemetery. My cousin told me that she died of cancer. Robert Trowbridge travelled with the family and it seems his main abode was a tent (these are stories told through my grandmother). At one stage he left them all in a tent somewhere and my grandma had to look after her siblings. Just a bit of trivia there. Did you have any luck with details of Eva May Trowbridge? I only have her birth date and nothing else.
Hi Wayne, As there are no recent comments not sure if you are still here. I have just joined and see that you are related to the same family as myself. My great grandmother was Sophia Louisa Wilhelmina Aufderheide (Trowbridge). Would love to be in contact with you.
Hi Wayne-Thanks for answering me so soon- I do have both of the links you sent me about my gr.grandpa George Hranka- I got some more info from Tom Vadjik , too...but I can't find out anything about what happened to George after he got hurt--the family in Kuselov never found out anything about George, either. George was Tom's Gr.Grandpa too---He's the one who told me about George-- I never even knew my Grandma's parents names before Tom got in touch with me !!! How can I see a copy of the 1930 Census you talked about ??
I did find a Hranka in another state, but it seemed it was not the one I was looking for-------- talk to you again ------- Nancy Cole

LOL Wayne - thought I was in trouble there in the first instance I noticed you sent me a comment.
Send me the information to the email address I left for Heather and I will get back to you. I do have a register for Ballarat but not personally worked on that cemetery.
The name BATTEN does not ring a bell but I still have thousands and thousands of photos yet to be indexed
Sometimes there is no other option than to purchase the death certificate - were are you located ?
Thank you for all the nice complements about my site. I'm glad you enjoyed your visit. As for Finest, think I have a lead for parents. I am working on it now. Will post more information this weekend when I get it all put together.
Hi Wayne. Thank you for Purdy Pankhurst lookups.. I have found the marriage records for Mary Rebecca Pankhurst .I must try and find out when she died and see if I can get her death certificate hopefully that will tell me where she was born. According to the age on her marriage records and going by the age on my G Grandgather Walters marriage certificate which I have they seem to have been born the same year. I don't think I have much chance of geting his death certificate as he cleared off one day when the kids were all small and was never seen again, They don't know if he fell down an old unused mine shaft near Kadina or not. I have been told a death certificate was issued for hom when his wife died in 1939, but don't know how true that is. Once again would like to thank you this is a very helpful site and am starting to understand it better now. I don't know too much about computers but amd learning that also. heather Laverty
Thank you for your Seward lookups. I have searched this site previously with no candidates that jump out as being the one.
I have Robert Shueard's death certificate. I also have 4 birth certificates of the 11 children. Unfortunately S.A do not put birth place of parents on these certificates as they did in Victoria.
Convict 1198 in Tasmania-ex Royal George was Robert Seward and he has certain similarities to our Robert, including the fact Robert was charged in S.A along with 3 other ex convicts over stolen oxen. (Found not guilty). However there is no definitive proof that the two are one.
Thank you for your suggestion Wayne. I looked briefly at site .It looks interesting. My Carters/and Higgins came out in 1879 on Northampton.They married on arrival in Sydney. Its really the Leiscestershire lot I am after. I will keep in touch.
Hi, I am having a terrible time trying to locate any information on my husband's Danish ancestors. Surname KROGH John Lorenz. b. 1854 Aabenraa (Apenrade) Denmark. Any direction to finding Danish records would be great. Thanks Lola
