Would like to find out if there is any way of searching for the death of an individual where the parents are unknown but the spouse is known without having of buy numerous death certificates.   Searching for Thomas Ryan who died at sometime between 1871 and 1880 - lots of Thomas Ryan deaths whose parents are unknown.

Hi Suzanne,

Just a few suggestions.  Have you looked for a death/funeral or probate notice on http://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper?  If you know where his wife or other close family were buried you can check to see if he is buried with them and so get a death year.  You don't say how old he was, but if any of his children married during this time their marriage certs or newspaper notices may note whether he was deceased.

Cheers,

Debra
