What sort of information are you looking for?

I found a couple of death notices for Inez  F. C. Gell, wife of Francis T. Gell, on Trove. See: here and here .  Looks like the date is 16 Dec 1897

Looking back a bit further, there were some court proceedings in 1872 concerning her maintenance: here and here

Didn't see anything on her parents.

Found an 1870 death notice for Inez Madeline Holland, countess Di Castro, mother of Mrs. Gell.  So it looks like her surname might possibly be Holland, not Robertson; and there's a possible New Zealand connection too.



Thank you, Vicky.

I use 'Trove' extensively and had this information before posting on WikiTree.

Apparently, I have to provide my own personal details to WikiTree which I'm not prepared to do.  I will be contacting church parishes, etc, to find biographical information.

You're welcome, Sandra.  It's hard to know what sources people have already used when they aren't mentioned in the query, so I didn't want to assume anything!  :-)  Your family is quite an interesting one, just based on what I read in the papers.  Sounds like F. T. Gell was a mayor at some point?  I hope you are able to join and add their stories!

By the way, just so you know, you are not required to use your personal details on WikiTree if you don't want to.  Many people use either their initials or some form of "Anonymous".  You just can't use someone else's name or details.

Take care.

Hi Julie,

Unfortunately, I don't want to provide my personal details to WikiTree.

Shall use other resources.
