I am researching at the moment the SUSMAN family, headed by JuliusSUSMAN an auctioneer who lived at 368 Cold Harbour Lane, Brixton,London as an Auctioneer from about 1891 to his death in 1937.
I workedin Brixton and Cold Harbour Lane had quite a reputation, Julius alsohad a shop in Railton Rd and I walked past that for 18 months on theway to work.
Sorry, Julius married Jane Jacobs and went on to have anumber of children. When he died the JC stated Australian papersplease. I then found, I think, one of his sons Adolph Alfred Susmanwent to Australia in 1911. There are no other Adolph Susman aroundthat time so although the list has no age I can assume its him, and Ican not find him in England. The ship he sailed on was the Orvieto andarrived in Brisbane 04/07/1911. I then found a Adolph Alfred Susman on an Australian voting list 1916with a Bertha Susman – was single at time of living England, so iguess he married in Australia. He now is in Perth. After spending ageslooking up maps to find out what states everywhere is, then trying tofind the relevant states BMD I have got no where.
Has anyone got an easy method of tracing marriages or deaths inAustralia. He must have been there in 1937. I have tried googling andgot nothing. There is prob. some great sites that I haven’t found as Iam a complete novice in trying to look at Australian genealogy[Debbie Bozkurt]
