Posting for a relative.


Her mum was Shirley Veronica  (some records might say Shirley Vera ) Naismith her dad was  Kevin John Richardson m

1947 in Richmond Victoria Australia.

They went their separate ways when their children were young and whilst we know the mothers side we don't know anything of the Richardson side.


It is believed he was possibly born in Euchuca between 1924-1930 he was

In the Euchuca 1954 census but m in Richmond vic (to Shirley) they had 3 daughters and a son.


Kevin later married Elsie? & she had two kids of her own a boy and girl.


We know Kevin was a truck driver and died on June 1 in 1988 and is buried

At  Cheltenham new cemetery (Victoria Australia).as can be found on billions graves.


Who were  Kevins parents got told his mum was Frsncis????

His father ????


Anyone related or know this family that could help one of Kevins kids find out about her Richardson clan??? Thankyou.

Hi Heidi

You can order a birth certificate for Kevin from the Victorian government and this will name both his parents and where they were living at the time of his birth.  The link is here:

Good luck!

Thankyou, yes I knew that, but just thought maybe domed me here might've knew/heard of them/related to them.??



Thankyou very much
I have a small number of Richardson distant cousins, but they were in the USA and Canada.
Personally, I don't know a great lot about them as they're my hubbys relations but I'm the so called (one of ) family researchers. I'm not sure where this line of Richardson originated..just that they were in and around Melbourne or other parts of Victoria.

My hubby is a Overton with connections in different areas including the USA & England & here and Scottish & German and English on the mothers side.

Apparantly there is supposed to be Richardson on both sides of the family.

This one being on my hubbys dads mums side (Norman/Naismith/Richardson ) Thankyou.

Hi, My name is Neil Richardson and I am the son of Kevin and Elsie Richardson. You are correct that Dad passed away 01/06/88 and Mum passed away just last year. They are both buried at Cheltenham Cemetery. Only came across this today (10/01/19) so if you want to contact me, my email address is below.
