    3. Hi Jackie, I have a book I picked up on our last trip out to Wave Rock at Hyden. It is called "Only the Wind was Free" & was written by Mick Mouritz. Printed by Lamb Print, Perth ISBN 1 86252 818 7. It is a brilliant book about how as an 18 year old he rode his push bike out to Hyden to choose a virgin block of land to farm becoming one of the first settlers in the area. Like so many district histories unfortunately it is not indexed though it does mention in detail many early families of Hyden. Copies of the book should still be available, I only bought mine about a year ago. Don't remember what I paid but it wasn't very expensive & worth every penny. If you can get hold of a copy I am sure you will love it. I don't even have ancestors from Hyden but I just love reading district histories of how pioneers established themselves & carved a home out of the wilderness. Best wishes, Sharon >Hello There, > > > > > First of all I am new at this game, so please >excuse any mistakes.

    3. Hi all, Jan James has just updated her Avon Valley Collection. The URL is http://avonvalleycollection.bravehost.com/ Go to the Search page. The latest .pdf file added in the 2nd index - An Index to the Jan James Avon Valley Collection now has over 11,000 records. These are for births, marriages and deaths (mostly) for people in the Avon Valley towns, ie Northam, Toodyay, York and Beverley. You'll also find that some events from further afield were registered in Northam or Northam District. You search the index (the pdf file) then send an email to Jan James for further information regarding that entry. The email address is listed on the 'Contact Us' page. All credit to Jan for making this index available to researchers. It's amazing to see how many individuals are connected with the Avon Valley towns. It's worth having a look at the index just in case some of your pioneer relatives spent time in this area. Good luck with the research.

    2. Chris Ward
    3. G'day again Sheelagh, I'm not connected. I couldn't find any births at all in S.A. for either wife. Thomas' surname is recorded as "NEWGENT" when he married Mary CONNAUGHTY or "CONAGHTY" on the record. The marriage was at the Catholic Church at Upper Light in 1862. I've looked for births with the Newgent spelling in W.A. & S.A. but no joy there either. Thomas supposedly came from Victoria about 1862. There are some references to the NUGENT family in the Streaky Bay history. Thomas and Annie are buried in the Piednippie Cemetery on the Poochera Road near Streaky Bay. I can't believe that NONE of the children appear to be registered. Do you have actual registrations for any of them in S.A. or W.A. apart from the family bible entries?

    3. Hi Margaret, I have just 'double checked' my grandparents' marriage cert...in 1919 and it contains details of the Bride and Groom's occupations, names of parents and the 'Rank/Profession" of the father of each. There is no provision for place of birth. Later certs included the place of birth, but am not sure when this provision came in. I'm fairly sure it was on my parents certs from the 1940's and I know mine have all these details. At a rough guess I doubt if there was any difference from 1919 to 1923.
