I am researching the Grant family history. I want information on Victor William Grant, ex Salvation Army Officer from England. Married Gertrude Jane Kendall, family owned fruit orchard 'Welcome' in Parkes NSW Australia. His son, Herbert Henry Grant, born 27 November, 1903 is my grandfather. He married Elsie May Neal in Trinity Church Orange in 1924. Any information would be helpful, please send me an e-mail

My grandfathers name was Herbert Henry Grant
I know that I had an uncle Victor who was my fathers half brother. My grandfathers first wife died and he remarried to Emma Bellert
If you think that this may be your grandfather as well let me know as I may be able to help you.

Oh my goodness, I have been trying to search for my biological father - Arthur Thomas Grant, and just by chance I thought of searching for his father which is Herbert Henry Grant, which would be my grandfather. From the information I have sourced my grandfather was married to Emma Bellert. Could this be the same person? I so dearly pray that this is a miracle. My father, Arthur Thomas Grant, had previously been married and had 2 daughters to this marriage. Unfortunately I don't have any names in regards to this marriage, but in 1967 he married my mother -Shirley Joyce Coley in New Zealand and I am a result from that marriage. I have been searching all my life. PLease advise if you know of any information at all, I would be so greatly appreciative of it. Many Blessings. Viv

Herbert Henry Grant & Emma Bellert were married in Queensland Australia 1916.

There is a listing for a Herbert Henry Grant born Queensland 1885 to parents Henry Grant & Annie Elizabeth Warren.

There is also a listing for a birth in Queensland for Emma Othelie Bellert born 1894 to parents Johann Carl Bellert & Caroline Othelie Riewger.

Emma Grant / Bellert died in Queensland 1963
Herbert Henry Grant died Qld 1971 aged 86.

Your birth certificate must say where your father was born and what age he was when you were born. I will try and assist you to locate him..

Hi Debbie
Thank you so much. Here is what I know:
On my original birth cert. my father is Arthur Thomas Grant, place of birth Australia, and thats all. But I have found out that his birthplace was recorded as Rockhampton, Queensland. His father is Hwerbert Henry Grant (a retired farmer) and his mother Emma Grant (nee Bellert). He was married to my mother (Shirley Joyce Coley) on 24 June 1967 at St. John's Methodist Church, Cambridge Street, Levin and they were divorced on 25 June 1971. I have a letter from him to my mother, dated 20 October 1968, and the address was Winton Qld.

Hope this helps.
Thx
Viv

Hi Viv,
Not sure what you mean by not getting a result but if you mean you couldn't view the death information on www.ryersonindex.org the I think you have missed the request a look-up icon.
If you go to the left hand side of the home page of ryersonindex you will find how to do this.Ryerson index has volunteers who look-up the newspaper entries and send them to you via email.
