Bev ................

..... everything is seemingly well documented in OZ, from his marriage, birth of children to his death


SylviaInCanada Report 26 Feb 2014 20:19

not much information in official records!!

A public tree on ancestry, with some documentation, has the following .................

Ferson Hisley Family
Owner: Irene Sachs

Harold Julius Ferson
Birth 1882 in Kristiansund, More og Romsdal, Norway
Death 1974 in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia


Dennis Ferson
Anne Larsen


Agnes May Hisley
1893 – 1991




Isabel Edith Ferson
1919 – 2009

Harold James Ferson
1921 – 2009

Jean Barbara Ferson
1924 – 1926

everything is well documented in Australia

This might give you some leads on to where to start your search re his birth, and when he arrived in the UK

Do you know what state of Australia he went to?
There is a death in New South Wales for a Harold Ferson in 1974, reference 42179/1974, parents' names Dennis and Ann.


No more info given on the page I'm afraid.
