Trove Tuesday - George Adams jnr

Amy Houston from Branches, Leaves & Pollen suggested the great idea of a Trove Tuesday theme.

Credit for finding this article about George Adams junior goes to my fellow Adams family researcher and  third cousin (once removed) Christine.  
George junior was the elder brother of Christines great great grandfather and my great grandfather. 
We didn't think we would ever find out about George junior as we could never find a death for him.  Chris came across this notice in Trove  so I did a search in the Vic BMD indexes for this death.  The only death anywhere near fitting was for a Page Adams with father George and mother Catherine.  I took a punt and purchased the certificate,  it was him!  
We were stoked! Yay for teamwork!

George junior  was buried at Dookie cemetery. There is no headstone.  I lived at Dookie for probably 15 years and visited that cemetery many times without ever knowing I had a family member buried there.



  1. What a sad story Kerryn. But isn't it amazing how Trove has allowed us all to find these stories which would otherwise be lost to history.

  2. Tragic story, Kerryn, but well found and excellent team work.

    1. thanks Fi, we were very excited. We have one brother left to find but still no luck.
