I have recently purchased a CD which has all the deaths in the State of
Victoria (Australia) from 1921 to 1985. If anybody thinks they may have
cousins or descendants of cousins dying in Australia in the period, write to
me privately and I'll have a look.
The information available is Father's and Mother's name, year of death,
place of death and age.
Just to let you know that I did find arthur Preston Lakeman on the LDS
website and his mother's First name was the same as his daughters, which
clarifies a few other issues.
I don't think I need to go back any further on this line as it is not mine,
but if anybody has a connection to Arthur (son of John Steer Lakeman and
Cecilia born in Overseal, Lei.), I would still like to hear from them.
Hello fellow Lakemaners.
I just received an email from someone who has an interest in a Cecilia
Lakeman that was born either in Victoria, Australia (according to my
records) or England (according to her records).
Cecilia is not related to my family so I had not pursued her that much.
My records show her father to be Arthur Preston LAKEMAN born in London c1850.
Does anybody have connection to, or knowledge of, Arthur?
Peter Lakeman (as he heads off to the LDS website).
Just to let you know I am leaving early tomorrow morning for a week's
holiday so will not be dealing with any Lakeman messages during that time.
However, I will not unsubscribe from the list as there does not seem to be a
great deal of traffic yet so I don't think my server will be overburdened.
I will reply to any queries as soon as I can on my return.
I hope you are all making progress.
