Debra replied to Barry Edwin Hyder's discussion WW1 service photos
"Photographs were not included in WW1 service records.  You would have to hope that someone in the family kept a copy if the soldier had one taken.  Some were published in newspapers and the AWM also has some on their website."

Debra commented on Neville Arthur Brauer's blog post Ship arrivals at Cairns QLD in 1900-3

Debra commented on Neville Arthur Brauer's blog post Ship arrivals at Cairns QLD in 1900-3
"I have been having a bit of a sticky beak around, and if you are looking for Margaret Smith DUNCAN then she was Jane's much younger sister and born in 1892.  It is unlikely she would have arrived with Jane in 1900."

Debra replied to Vivien Marscham's discussion John Gwydir McIntosh
"Vivien, This is a random example of a WW2 service record which has been digitised to give you an idea of what they look like.  This one is 21 pages and looks to be about average for those I have seen. http://soda.naa.gov.au/record/4832525/1"

"Hi Richard, From page 3 onward, have a look in the second last column of the service record for the locations. http://soda.naa.gov.au/record/4892428/1 If you read this description of the movements of the 2/101 General Transport Company you will see…"

Debra commented on gaile cordery (lintott)'s blog post Lintott Family
"As they didn't arrive in WA until 1920 they wouldn't appear on electoral rolls for awhile.  I would say they enrolled in 1921 for the 1922 roll."

Debra commented on gaile cordery (lintott)'s blog post Lintott Family
"Sorry I didn't see your corrected years 1920-1924.  So from 1922 onwards they were at Manjimup but because the earlier rolls are not name indexed you have to search by electoral district and they could be anywhere really or may not have…"

Debra commented on gaile cordery (lintott)'s blog post Lintott Family
"1917 to 1922 are not name indexed but I will have a look at the individual records as I don't know if you mean 'between 1919 and 1924'? Found them still at Manjimup in 1922."

Hello Debra - thank you for replying to my query re; pte Wm. Farmer.  I have documents pertaining to w. Farmer, and photgraphs, taken obviously back in ap. 1916.

We would like to know more about his family tree, but I am not too sure how to set about finding information, in Australia.  Any tips would be much appreciated.  Once again, many thanks.  Regards Joyce.

 Hello. My name is Reli and i am helping my friend. His father has been living for 20 years in Australia from 1938 until to 1958. His father was called Ilia Ilia (Elias) ll and has worked in a tabacco factory in Brisbane and maybe he has performed military. I would like to know if his father might be an Australian citizen. 

All the goods, Reli
