    3. Dear list I am trying to find more information on my great, greatgrandfather Robert BUTLER a shoemaker. The N.S.W. Electoral Rolls from 1869 to 1879 list him in the district of Hartley, Oakborough, Rylestone. Am I correct in thinking that Oakborough is the name of a property ? From 1881 to 1883/1884 he is listed as Mudgee, Oakborough, Rylestone. A Robert Butler died 1883 in Mugee gaol in 1883, I have checked at the N.S.W. Archives and there are no records for mudgee gaol, except one small blue book which was found behind a cupboard when they were removing furniture items from the gaol. I am pleased to say that this small book reported the death of Robert Butler at Mudgee gaol, and it stated to my pleasure, that he was a gaol warder and he died of a heart attack. Any suggestions on researching gaol warders ? Rylstone, or any other directions would be greatly appreciated. Rhonda Newell Terrigal, N.S.W.

    1. [AUS] Barry, Evans, Mahoney, Price
    2. Chris Mahoney
    3. Am researching the above names, some of which started in Melbourne Victoria, but all eventually ended up in or around Rockhampton, Queensland. The BARRY and MAHONEY families came from Ireland.  The EVAN's came from Hereford in England and the PRICE's came from London. My website at http://www.chrismahoney.co.nz/ has more details on these families.

Sincerely, > The RootsWeb team > > I am the List Administrator for a number of Rootsweb genealogy mailing lists. Like a number of other Rootsweb genealogy mailing lists List Administrators, I have started migrating some of my Rootsweb mailing lists, to groups.io, which apparently offers a superior mailing lists facility. I am at this stage, intending to relinquish this list, for which I am the List Administrator, as at the closure of all of the Rootsweb lists. This list has been relatively inactive, for the last year or so. I therefore need a list member to step up, and to migrate this list, for example, to the groups.io platform, and, become the equivalent of a Rootsweb List Administrator. The job should be easier than being a Rootsweb List Administrator, due to the nature of the groups.io platform (if my replacement chooses to use that, like most of the Rootsweb List Administrators who are migrating our lists). This is relatively easy, for someone who has some experience as a List Administrator, and so, I am asking for someone to take this on. I am aware that at least one of the subscribers to this list, is a List Administrator of other lists, and, has migrated some of that person's lists, to groups.io. I can explain what needs to be done, to implement this, if someone is interested. If someone who has experience as a Rootsweb List Administrator, contacts me and advises that the person wants to take this on, the simplest way would be for me to arrange with that person to become the Rootsweb List Administrator for this list, to make the migration simpler. To do this, send me an email message stating the details, to the email address australia-owner@rootsweb.com Migrating this Australia list to groups.io, has the potential for implementing subgroups, for migration of other Australia-related lists, including regional, state, and suburb/city lists. I am aware that this can be done, and, has been done for other migrations of Rootsweb lists, but I do not know how to do it. It is an aspect that has great potential, if someone has the inclination, and the time and energy, to implement it. Remember, all Rootsweb genealogy mailing lists are scheduled to cease operation, as of 02 March 2020. -- Bret Busby List Administrator Armadale West Australia ..............

    1. [AUS] Roadworks at State Records
    2. Bill
    3. Good Morning List, During this week I attended State Records where I have not been for a while and found that O’Connell Street, the road outside State Records is to be closed for several months from tomorrow so that it can be completely rebuilt. This seriously affects access to State Records and an alternative access has been created at the front of State Records, but to get to it from the Great Western Highway, Gipps Street, Sunflower Drive and O’Connell Street will have to be used. Importantly for people attending by bus there will be a twenty minute walk from the nearest Bus Stop during these works. I have a copy of the information from State Records so email me off list if needed. Sincerely, Bill Shute --- This email has been checked for viruses by AVG. https://www.avg.com

    1. [AUS] Please help to save the information on Australian marriage certificates!
    2. Lyn Carruthers
    3. I am one of many who are alarmed at the proposed changes to the marriage forms. https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__www.ag.gov.au_Consultat ions_Pages_review-2Dmarriage-2Dforms-2Dnoim.aspx&d=DwIDaQ&c=kKqjBR9KKWaWpMhA SkPbOg&r=i_LQs9DbVPyA1d4XXLxKbzvIFyFXVQXpPud-TuD7xxs&m=MtGQ-B02XFXtLF0tonaup FzWcCajG2J-_ezMTs3aND8&s=pB6hnXBkWlnPGlaQFN6L9eVRQZhPbiJI0Ia9QZqBHLg&e= The changes suggested will certainly affect future family historians, but will also affect many families directly. It is a forgone right to know the names of our ancestors, as well as where they lived, what their occupation was, mother's maiden name and whether any of the parents of the people concerned are deceased at the time of the marriage. By simplifying this form, what could possibly be the advantages? As I see it, we will be losing valuable information that can help families trace their ancestors. In today's society, we are more open to helping adopted people find their biological parents. where there is mutual agreement. This will make that harder. We are often looking to trace ancestors for knowledge of medical history. this will be much harder, if not nigh impossible to do that. There are times when we are trying to trace those entitled to an inheritance... marriage certificates, along with other certificates, are invaluable. We, in Australia, are fortunate to have some of the best certificates in the world. Why change it ? I would appreciate an acknowledgement and explanation. Yours sincerely,"

    3. Hi - I found details on the origins and development of a company established by me ancestors in one of the Australian Biographers. locatred in the reference section at my local library. So if the Armstrong, or the Holland were instrumental in developing the company, you may find them there - it's worth a try.

    1. seeking knowledgeable person re Lodges - Masonic and others
    2. Nandina Morris
    3. Good morning Aus folk - and a beautiful autumn morning it is, too, in the south-east suburbs of Melbourne, anyway. I need help to decide if my gr'fa was just a member of The Masonic Lodge, or whether other 'titles' noted in his obit belinged to other Lodges. It states:- Foundation member and Past Master Lord Northcote Masonic Lodge; also Maribyrnong Lodge; Ballarat Reunion Lodge and a past Member of the Royal Arch and Initiate of the Royal and Select Masters. Was Past Senior Grand Warden when he died. Life Governor of Masonic Homes ... . Apart from itemising the Lodges, if there are more Organisations than the Masonic Lodge, I am hoping to obtain some info (in addition to the above) about his activities - sort of 'what does it all mean'? Hope someone out there may be able to fill me in a bit more. Cheers, Nandina

    1. Methodist Church Archives
    2. Nandina Morris
    3. Good morning all - the rooster up the street wakes me very these days. I expect it's a gene that makes me resent being woken too early. My gr'fa (to get to the point) was noted as a 'Leading Layman of Methodist Church', which, from my recollection of him, will be an accurate description. He preached at the Sassafras Methodist Church, later sold and now a Restuarant, (privately owned, and very tastefully refurbed). He was also heavily involved with the Highfield Road Methodist Church (East Camberwell?) which I attended with him. I would like to seek further information re the level and nature of the involvement both he and my gr'ma had with the Methodist Church. And in case this reaches someone who 'knows', his name - Garrett John RUSSELL, wife Annie. He died 1949, and was the grandson of pioneer vicar also Garrett John RUSSELL in Buninyong, Vic. Thanks for your patience and hope someone can assist me. Cheers, Nandina

    1. WHEELMEN COSTUMES
    2. Nandina Morris
    3. Morning Listers, now I know what a wheelman is/was, I wonder if amongst you there is a family who had a wheelman around 1920s - or even someone who knows of a Cycling Museum where one may be on display. I am trying hard to find the best way of accessing a photograph of the costumes my Grandfather manufactured. I believe his business was bought out at the time of the depression by son-in-law, Jack Ansett (his son-in-law, that is, not mine <g>) and was then built up to become the Ansett Knitting Mills Anyway, if there is someone who knows how a Melbourne person could get to photograph a cycling (racing) outfit of that era, I would be much obliged. If it be the case that you have a photo yourself, please mail me so I can cover your costs of having a print made, and snail mailed, as my antiquated system cannot handle anything other than plain text, and my son-in-law crashed his hard drive - inconsiderate, I say. And if there is anything I can do for anyone, please let me know. .Cheers, Nandina

    1. wheelman's outfitter (occ)
    2. Nandina Morris
    3. Greetings - have just examined Sands & McDougall index at local library. What a resource that is! I found my grandfather, who, in 1904 was listed as a tailor, however in 1907 was listed as a Wheelmen's outfitter, with a business address of 366a Bourke Street Melb. I am curious as to what a wheelman was. Were there many people employed in that particular occupation? The name gives a vague understanding, but what did the wheelmen wheel? This occupation continued until at least 1926, but by 1930 he was in real estate at Sassafras. Hope someone can enlighten me. Cheers, Nandina
