Thompson's (Thomson's) from Sydney Australia
« on: January 28, 2008, 03:57:18 PM »
Hey Y'all.

My mother was a Thompson:

Olive May Thompson                                       
born: 15 May 1941 - Sydney
died:  26 January 2004 - Canberra

Mum had some siblings Anne, Christine, Norma, Noreen, Robert.

I do not the name of my maternal grandfather, and I would like to know.
I do not know the name of my maternal grandmother, and I would like to know.

Both my mother and fathers family originated from Scotland.

If you can assist with any information Please either post or email me direct at

welcome Brett!

First, hard to work from just your parents.  Can you get a copy of your mothers death certificate???  Marriage certificate???   This should provide you with at least your maternal grandparents, and from that we can see what we can find out!

Let me know and I will see if I can help!

Hi Brett!

The only mention I can find that's CLOSE is this death notice (unfortunately, the Canberra News doesn't seems to have a searchable obituary archive to get more information)  I realize the months aren't the same - but I thought I'd post it anyway - in case!

WELSH   Olive May (Pam)   Death notice   26NOV2004   Death   63       Canberra Times   27NOV2004   

I've been searching and haven't found anything else - I'll try searching siblings.

Brett -

I found some information on your father's family, but not your mother's yet. I'll send the info via email and you can post it if you wish. It may help someone else, so please do. Don't include any persons living.
