A touch confused,from your tree you have,
Wilhelm marries Kathleen O'Connor.
Their son,William born 1899(not 1902)marries Rose Beatrice Mills.
Tree is then private.
When and where did these marriages occur?Was William the trapeze artist?

Sorry, William O'Conner was the trapeze artist, Whilhelm was his father who Married Kathleen O'Conner. Not sure what Whilhelm surname was, my mother thinks it was something like Stutts or Strutz, he changed it during the war to O'Connor. Have no idea about marriages as i cant find anything. this is my last hope as ive exausted all avenues. recaluated William was born 1901.

Sturtz may be Kathleen's husband's name,a few by this name in index and white pages.You have both William Sturtz and William O'Connor dying in 1963,both death certificates would be helpful.Which area of Victoria did this all take place?
