I am looking for the wife and family of John Linn, born 4 Jan 1868, to Matthew Linn and Susan Bartlett, at Meningie, South Australia, Australia. I know he had 2 daughters,  one being Marjorie Linn, born about 1908 in South Australia and died in 1975 at Foster, Gippsland, Victoria, Australia. She married a man by the name of Sidney Raymond Fellows from Gippsland, Victoria. Marjorie and Sidney had a son called John Edward Fellows, born about 1930 at Foster, Gippsland, Victoria, Australia. Marjorie's sister was called Joy Linn. Joy moved to Subiaco, Western Australia to live with and Aunt so we have been told. We don't think she ever married. Does anyone have any info on this family.

Hi Ria,

The Digger CDs are not on-line. They are all purchases I made. You can use them at a family history organisation and many local and state libraries have them.

You can search the Victorian indexes on-line but they cost $ and are not as flexible in searching as the CDs.


South Australian records can be found here but they are mch abbreviated and don't give you the full information the Digger CDs do:


Thank you Jen. Every bit of info is a help.  Cheers Ria.yes
