Orphans and their families in Australia
As a brief coda to my previous post, here are twelve (out of c.300) of my orphan family reconstitutions. I’ve gone back to the original copies. They’re in a pretty primitive state. Click on them, or ‘pinch’ them, and they are magnified, and I hope, easier to read. I’ve included a few examples sent to me by family historians, to which I was able to add specific dates. The forms are selected at random from the folders in my filing cabinet. Alas, sometimes this demographic material is all we know about the Earl Grey orphans in Australia. But it is better than nothing, and one day, I’m sure we will know more. I’ve added a blank form at the very end, in case anybody would like to try filling it in.
