Re my Granparents arrival in Sydney in 1930 their names and D.O.B. are as follows:
William James Thomas born 5th July 1906 in Merthyr Tydfil South Wales.
Mary Archibald born 2nd August 1907 in Hamilton Scotland.
I also have a record of my Mother and Grandmother leaving Australia on the ship Hobsons Bay from Brisbane in 1932- passenger number is 151802
Any information would be wonderful
Sorry my mistake !!!- (got it completely wrong)- my Grandparents left England aboard the Orsova on 8/12/1929 from London.
On the record of my Grandmotherand my Mother leaving in 1932 my Mother's age is given as 3/12 which I had assumed to be 3 years old but obviously it means 3 months !!- not a journey I'd like to make with a baby.
My Mother was born in ( I believe)Corrimal on 19/1/1932 - I'm currently trying to order a copy of her birth certificate so that I can get an address for where my Grandparents were living.
I've got a copy of their marriage certificate from 1930 but it doesn't have any addresses other than Sydney and Balgownie
