family which they believe came to Australia in the late 1920s or 30s.
They don't nominate a state, and probably don't really appreciate the
size of Aust and the fact that the records we have currently available
are different to theirs. The family have been checked on Ancestry so
that bit's been done. You people seem much more expert than me. Have
you any suggestions for online sources, particularly for the states
other than NSW(where at least I can run through it's BDMs). I will
get to the State Lib and check out what electoral information is
I have forgotten what years Ancestry covers for that but I checked it
out today at the local library.
The father's name is Paul J(probably Joseph) Daly, born 1886. Of
course he may not have enrolled to vote.
Thanks in anticipation
