I have a 1903 diary which is believed to be my great grandmothers -Minnie Simmonds d. Australia. Many Simmonds family members are listed in it.
there are hand written birthdays in it that look like this:
"Annie Simmonds (Cullum) b.14.01"
"Bertram Cullum b.02.02"
none of the entries have a birth year... Or any other information but it does day "farewell and good luck in Australia" (left Watford England).
