    1. [New-Caledonia] James Page, Horace Haverhill Page
    2. Ian Buckley via
    3. Two brothers of my great grandfather migrated to South Australia in 1850. JAMES PAGE became a prominent citizen of Adelaide and owned a shipping company trading with New Caledonia. His brother HORACE HAVERHILL PAGE is a mystery: he disappeared from Australian official records some time after he was declared bandkrupt. For instance, there is no record of his death. One theory is that he shipped out of Australia on one of his brother's ships and may have spent some time in the French Pacific. He spoke good French. James had spent time as a young man studying at the Sorbonne and it is possible that Horace, too, had been a student in Paris. If anyone with knowledge of New Caledonia from 1860 onwards has come across the surname PAGE I'd be most grateful to hear from them. Or if someone with expertise in the area could suggest how I might further my research - again, I'd be very grateful - IAN BUCKLEY

Where would I apply to find out information for obtaining a Death Certificate?    I contacted an address that I saw on a message board archives@gouv.nc but I never received a reply.

    3. Nous sommes les descendants d’un homme (semble-t-il d’origine française) venu s’installer en Ecosse, qui s’est marié avec une fille écossaise en mars 1882. Ils ont eu plusieurs enfants, dont les descendants habitent en Ecosse, en Angleterre, aux Etats-Unis, au Canada et en Espagne. Le nom de cette personne, tel que cité dans les archives écossaises, est Gustave Julien BIRDWISA. Ce monsieur était illettré, ne sachant ni lire ni écrire. Néanmoins, des souvenirs de famille rapportent qu'il était convaincu que l’orthographe de son nom était incorrecte. Serait-t-il possible que son nom fût BOURDOISEAU ou BOURDOISANT ou BOURDOISE ? Un inconnu a placé son nom dans le «International Genealogical Index», donnant pour date de naissance 1844, en France. Nous espérons que des Bourdoiseau, Bourdoisant ou Bourdoise vivant en France reconnaîtront notre ancêtre. Nous pensons que le père de Gustave s’appelait Victor et sa mère Marie Louise ou Louise. Sa mère s'est remariée après le décès de Victor, et a pris le nom de famille de son nouvel époux, Russell (? "We are descended from a man who settled in Scotland and married a Scottish girl in March 1882. They had numerous children whose descendants now live in Scotland, England, USA, Canada and Spain.

    3. Hi Manaia, I have sent a reply to the list that I received Isabella Walker nee Simpson's death certificate. Very promptly too which was lovely. I am now looking for the rest of the family. Do I send another email to the address below asking for individual Death certs or is there some other archives that might have that information. I am looking for the death cert' of James Walker Isabella's husband at Noumea unfortunately I don't when he died but presume it was after Isabella so it would have been after 1885. James Walker was born c 1836 at Dundee Scotland. How would I find anything out about their children Peter born 1866, Jessie 1869 ,Eliza born 1871, Alexander, Thomas and William. Also how would I find out when they arrived in New Caledonia?

    3. Rootsweb mailing lists are automatic and are managed by list robots. These robots take care of subscription requests and bouncing (rejected) emails.

Answer: If your list mail cannot be delivered for any reason, the list robot unsubscribes you after a certain number of failed attempts. (For the NEW-CALEDONIA list the maximum member bounce score is: 3) This can happen for a number of reasons - some of the more common reasons are that your mailbox is full, your spam filter is blocking the list mail, your ISP is blocking list mail from Rootsweb, you have put an automatic responder on your email.... If you were unsubscribed and did not wish to be taken off the mailing list, simply subscribe again.
