    Aye caramba!!!!

    Well thank you everyone....I think....

    I will talk to Mum sometime soon hopefully and see what certificates she has for Joseph and Alice.

    Maybe I should do that about other branches before asking about any other lines

    No worries. It’s kept us off the streets. In the meantime we’ll keep digging.

    So the headstone I found of Alice along with the one of her daughter Alice Gild is in my mum's records. Alice (the daughter) married Harry? Gild. She died 29th April 1966

    In 1897 a Harry Gild was found guilty of forgery at Coolgardie WA and sentenced to 2 years hard labour. Now please don’t jump to conclusions as it could be another Harry......over to you ;) I believe this Harry was also born in SA.
    There is a Harries Gild born 1876 Adelaide father Abraham. Cant find a Harry? born in WA. That would make him 38 when he married Alice in 1914.

    But maybe not.....Sunday Times Sunday 15 Feb 1914, Matrimonials.... Harry Gild , on the high seas to Alice Platt, Perth. Was Harry a sailor or was he born 'on the high seas'?

    Going back to Joseph and Alice's marriage. It looks as though Rev W Langsford was a Methodist. Are there Methodist marriage records for SA at that time hidden away somewhere?...

    Probably held by the State Library of South Australia.

    So after talking to Mum yesterday she has told me the things in my original post is the same as what she has. Although she has also had Alice Errington Williams instead of Alice Kath. She has Alice's death as 7th January 1902 and I do need to apologise, I had Alice's death as November 1902, I think I did a typo and should have been a 1 not 11, so sorry for that.

    This is how you can get help from the State Library of South Australia. Although they are closed at the moment due to COVID restrictions.

    The freebie membership allows people to go in for a stickybeak. A friend of mine's father runs the place and it is about one km from home, so I could drop in and find a few things.

    So I emailed the State Library in South Australia to see if they could help me out at all and all they sent me was a Trove newspaper clipping mentioning the marriage of Joseph Platt and Alice Williams, which I already have...worth a try though.

    They are very helpful in person but do not give help via the Internet. You could send in a good friend to talk to them, but it would need to be someone prepared to put in time and effort. I could not do research like that for you, but someone else who is actually related to you might.

    Another thought. As The majority of Methodist churches in Australia became one with Presbyterian and Congregational back in the seventies then a phone call or email to the Uniting Church Synod of South Australia, in Prarie Street Adelaide, may get you sent in the right direction.

    Looking through posts I think this has not been mentioned, but another little goldmine here in S.A. is the State Records Office.
    Until restrictions are lifted they are closed but offer 'Archives at Home'.

    I had just a quick look but it's some time since I was able to go there & this is new to me. Try your luck. ;)
