Hi




I am trying to find info on my two Great Aunts Fanny Valentine Buckland b 1889 and Violet Alice M P Buckland b 1892 in Swindon, Wiltshire, England. They
emigrated to Australia in the early 1900s. I know Valentine married twice, 1st to a James Wilson in 1905. She had a son JAMES FREDERICK WILSON b 19 Jan 1906
in Swindon, Wiltshire, England then she married a Sidney Snowdon possibly in Australia. Anyone able to help at all?

Welcome to the group!!!




I personally am not very good at researching Austrailian genealogy. I am sure someone in the group has access to records for that part of the world.

with Melville Hugh S Snowdon and her son Melville born 1918 then she later had Leonard in SA. Melville was in WW2. Theres a Leonard William in Cent Cem maybe
thats her son? Can find her burial?

I have some Australian resources at hand so I'll see what I can find. Have you looked up the 1901 UK census at all? If not I can do that as well.


Be back later on dinnertime here.


Cheers
