Edith Geyer with grandchildren
Urith and Lorna Geyer
It would be interesting to know how many other children delivered by Nurse Edith Geyer are missing or incorrect. The birth of my Grandmother, Eva Pilgrim, who was also delivered by her grandmother Nurse Geyer, was incorrectly registered.
My grandmother celebrated her birthday on the 18th August. However her birth record states that she was born on 18th October 1910. Her parents were married in 1907 (and I have the certificate) so she was definitely not conceived out of wedlock! I have another theory why the date was registered incorrectly!
There were three births, delivered by Edith Geyer in Nhill, registered on the 9th December 1910;
Reg No. 29552 - Rose Ellen Gladys Cunningham born 18 October 1910
Reg No. 29553 - Eva Jean Pilgrim born 18 October 1910
Do you know where I am going yet?

Anyway, back to Urith. She married Stanley Victor Stevens on the 28th October 1940 in Horsham.
According to my grandmother, she and one of her sons were murdered in Mildura on the 28th April 1960.
