Greetings - I fairly new to genealogy, so I'm hoping this forum may point me in the right direction. I'm trying to find my great grandfather (3 times removed) from the time he 'supposedly' arrived in Australia until his death. It seems to me he has simply fallen off the planet never to be heard of again. I've listed below what we have been able to confirm.....
* William Moore - born circa 1820, birth certificate not found as yet
* Eleanor (Ellen) Bradley - married in Belfast, Ireland in 1850, confirmed
* Eleanor (Ellen) died in 1915 and is buried in the Williamstown Cemetery, Victoria, confirmed. The death notice states Eleanor was a widow at the time of her death.
* A marriage certificate for one of their daughters states William was deceased as at the time of said marriage, 1884, confirmed.
I had hoped the Archive would have records of William and Eleanor's entry/arrival into Australia, however, all of my searches haven't been successful. I've enquired everywhere I can think of - Irish Genealogy, Victoria Records Office, Victoria BDM Dept, the list is becoming endless. Can anyone give me any tips on where I could possibly find William?
Thank you for reading/listening..... kind regards, Penny
