Paul Didier

From: on Wednesday, 17 March, 2010
Dear Elizabeth,
I am Christine from France. I came across your site and was most interested as I am looking for our "far" cousins, descending from Paul Didier and Caroline Hammes who settled in Victoria in 1873 with their 3 children, born in Strasburg. Paul Didier remarried an Irish Lady: Annie Rooney in 1874 after his wife died and I was told they had 4 children.
You mention his son Jules Eugène George who married M.Sophia Forrester. One of this couple's son, George Baptiste died in action in France in 1916 and I found a file with 57 documents in the online National Archives of Australia.
The second son, who arrived in Victoria at the age of 9 months got married to Catherine Sarah Belsey in 1898 in Melbourne; He got naturalized in 1911 - 6 documents in the online National Archives of Australia. In one of the documents, he says he already had 4 children in 1911: 3 girls and 2 boys.
Our family tree is on http://gw.geneanet.org/xine
My cousins and I would be very interested in knowing who the Didier descendants in Australia are. Could you please help us? I am trying to find email addresses to get in touch and ask about the descendants.
I am looking forward to your reply. Thank you very much in advance.
My best regards. Christine Baudry, France
