    1. [AUS-VIC-ECHUCA-DISTRICT] Notice that this list is about to close.

    3. Hello members of the AUS-VIC-ECHUCA-DISTRICT mailing list, currently hosted on Rootsweb/Ancestry servers. My name is Peter and I have been the list administrator of this list since it was abandoned. I have no idea when it was abandoned nor who the previous admin was. On 7th January 2020, Rootsweb informed all list admins that they will not be providing any mailing list services after 2nd March 2020, except to keep the archives available (see RW email appended below). In other words, all lists will cease to be. If members want to keep this list active, they will need to host it on a new server. A number of such servers exist, such as, FaceBook, google groups. I personally do not wish to remain the admin of this list, so one of the members will need to step up as a new administrator if they want to keep this list alive. As a side comment, I think that many of the smaller lists were created on a person's whim in Rootsweb's heyday, and are probably past reviving. I can't remember when the last post to this list was. If there are any questions, please post them to the list, but do it quickly as time is running out quickly. Cheers Peter ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Beginning March 2nd, 2020 the Mailing Lists functionality on RootsWeb will be discontinued. Users will no longer be able to send outgoing emails or accept incoming emails.  Additionally, administration tools will no longer be available to list administrators and mailing lists will be put into an archival state. Administrators may save the emails in their list prior to March 2nd. After that, mailing list archives will remain available and searchable on RootsWeb. As an alternative to RootsWeb Mailing Lists, Ancestry message boards are a great option to network with others in the genealogy community. Message boards are available for free with an Ancestry registered account. Thank you for being part of the RootsWeb family and contributing to this community. Sincerely, The RootsWeb team ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    3. Hello subscribers to the aus-vic-echuca-district mailing list. All Rootsweb mailing lists have been nearly dead for the last two or so years. In February this year, Rootsweb upgraded the software that runs their 30,000 or so mailing lists, and after a few teething problems, the system is now up and running. The archives of past posts are gradually being restored, but this may take months. Subscribers may notice minor differences. The main difference for you is that you can register as a subscriber and then be able to adjust options for how you receive emails (e.g. single posts or digests in plain or MIME format, halt mail while on holidays and a few more things). Or you can leave things as they are. As a reminder, the purpose of this mailing list is  for the discussion of genealogical topics in the area of Echuca in Victoria, Australia at any time For questions about the operation of this list, please contact the list administrator at [email protected] <mailto:[email protected]> To post to this list or respond to a post, use the email address      [email protected] Your list is back up so if you want to keep this list active and going, please post your queries or information to the list. Cheers Peter Lakeman Temporary List Admin

    1. [AUS-VIC-ECHUCA-DISTRICT] Irwins of Echuca
    2. Graham & Deb Flanagan
    3. I'm hoping that someone on this list may be able to help me! I'm looking for the exact marriage date of John Langhorne IRWIN and Mary MALONEY who married in Victoria, Australia in 1869. Their children were all born in Echuca: Emma Langhorne b. 1870, Frederick Chidley b. 1871 and James Courthope b. 1876. Their births weren't listed in The Argus so may have appeared in the Riverine. I also can't locate the exact death date of Frederick who died in 1938 as there was no notice in The Argus. All but James were buried in Echuca. I believe the family was Catholic though John Langhorne's family was Anglican. Thank you to anyone who can help with this request. Cheers, Deb Flanagan, Christchurch, New Zealand

    3. Hello Listers, In 1852 William, Sarah Boyes and family, Richard, Ann Boyes and family arrived in Australia as unassisted passengers on the ship City of Lincoln. Richard remained in Prahran, Victoria, while we believe William who was a Beer house keeper, or Inn Proprietor or Victualler in Liverpool, may have gone to the gold fields around Bendigo. His two daughters Sarah Pilkington Boyes & Eliza Boyes married at Sandhurst, Victoria I have been told Sandhurst was established before Bendigo. Would a lister be able to advise how I could find out if any records are kept of Beer houses etc. The family remained in Victoria for 12 years they then left Victoria and settled at "Kelpie Farm",Tataila, Moama, New South Wales. I would appreciate any help in ascertaining where the family resided in Victoria. S.Brill - Sunshine Coast.

    1. [AUS-VIC-ECHUCA-DISTRICT] Craigie, Elliot
    2. Ian & Margaret Kelly
    3. Hi Folks Has anyone any information on this CRAIGIE family who arrived in Melbourne from Liverpool on the "Parsee" on 9 December 1855? Their names were Thomas (25), his wife Ann (23) and a son John George aged 3. John George's surname may correctly have been ELLIOT as his mother had been previously married to a John Elliot in England before her marriage to Craigie. Ann's maiden name was FREDERICK. Thomas was a shipwright. Thomas and Anne CRAIGIE had a daughter, Anne Maria, who was born in Victoria (Collingwood?) in 1856. Then this family seems to have disappeared. There is a Thomas CRAIGIE who married Annie LAWRIE at Wentworth in New South Wales in 1862 but I don't know if he is the same person as above. Thank you Ian Kelly Sandstone Point Queensland

    2. Ian & Margaret Kelly
    3. Hi My great grandparents were married at Wentworth, New South Wales, Australia in 1862. Bride was Annie LAWRIE (domestic servant), aged 24, born Dublin. Her parents were James LAWRIE (farmer) and Annie McGAREY. The bride was apparently illiterate and signed her name on the marriage certificate with an x so the spelling of the surnames may not be correct but that is how it appears on the certificate. The groom was Thomas CRAIGIE (ship wright), aged 29, born New Castle (no country shown). His parents were Thomas CRAIGIE (ship owner) and Annie RANDELL or RANDELT. I note that there are quite a lot of places called New Castle or Newcastle in the world. This couple had a son, also called Thomas, the next year. Then Thomas senior seemed to disappear and the next we hear of his wife is when she married (?) a man by the name of George KELLY and moved to Queensland. I have not been able to locate a marriage certificate for Annie Craigie and George Kelly. Thomas (the son) then appears to have had his surname changed to Kelly. He became my grandfather. I would like to contact anyone researching these lines. Ian Kelly Sandstone Point, Queensland
