Hi all.

Having trouble finding two births. Possibly Amsterdam.

William Joseph Dominicus Purich. b.1920.
Philippus Purich. b.1922.

Parents married in O/N/D. 1919. Aylesbury. R.D. Joseph Domenicus Antonius Purich & Florence Sarah Ives.

1939. Living in Bell Street, Princes Risborough, Bucks.

Netherlands, Genealogie Online Trees Index, gives no p.o.b. for either.

Any ideas, anyone.

This is the place to look, the amsterdam archives. he is listed as born 3-11-1890. The information will be on a family card, with a bit of luck there will be other family and info on where they came from. Dont know if it is got any info in English.

If on the archives you go to menu "indexen" then click zoek (search) and put PURICH in the box that says (achternaam)..thats surname. and maybe you will find more.

I read the birth of William Joseph Domenicus to be 5 October 1920 and that of Phillipus to be 15 September 1922.

I don't speak Dutch but am I right in thinking Meubelmaker is Furniture Maker?

yes Meubelmaker is furniture maker....Im not too good at old writing, so what you read is better than what I read. Any Idea where the father came from, looks like an italian place to me.

Thanks very much.

Mothers p.o.b. is Meadle,(Monks Risborough), Buckinghamshire. England.

Not easy to read, but I can see enough to make sense of it.

As can be seen from the newspaper clipping, the service was Catholic(St.Theresa's), and burial @ St.Mary's.(C of E.), Princes Risborough, Bucks.

The father came from Chieze which is a small village in Switzerland between Guttingen and Kesswil, near the shore of Lake Constance. If it helps to place it on a map it's on the other side of the lake from Friedrichshafen.

Hi Melissa.

I have very little, except what I've gleaned from others and Netherlands, Genealogie. All I know for a fact, is that they ended up in Perth, Australia. 1974, Karrakatta burial for Florence Sarah Purich(nee.Ives).
On his mothers side(Ives), I have more than enough to take you back much further, to the 1600's.
At the moment, my subs for Ancestry have lapsed, so research is out using that site.

Regards. Steve.:)
