I am after information on Soblusky's in Maryborough or Gympie area.

The information I have is:-

arriving on 'Prince Consort' 2 November 1862
Augustus (37 yr old) & Ann (35 yr old) their children Sarah (6 yr old) Arabella (5 yr old) Joseph (4 yr old whom I think is my great great grandfather) Augustin (infant).

Joseph I have on a birth certificate of my great grandfather's was a cabinet maker (at least that is what's on the certificate). Also says that Joseph was born in Gympie, Qld, but I do not believe this is correct.

If anyone can help me please let me know any information would be helpful eg if he married and had other children etc.

Thankyou Leisa

This is the website for the Gympie Family History Society. There are Sobluskys on this page.

My great grandfather was a bootmaker and I was told that he worked for Sobluskys in Mary Street Gympie.His name was William Dillon.The shemakers shop was located in lower Mary Street( I think)

There are some very good historians in Gympie and the Family History Society have excellent information, all you need to do is ask them on line.

The Gympie Pioneers Register was launched this year. This person is looking for SOBLUSKY, Sarah Catherine.
Lorraine Clarke,62 Hammett Street, Currajong, Townsville, Queensland 4810. Australia

Extract from Gympie Times births 7th February 1899.
SOBLUSKY, On the 29th January, at her residence, Mary Street, the wife of O.G.Soblusky, of a daughter.

There are several books available containing Birth,Marriage,Death and Funeral extracts from the Gympie Times in the 1800's. However,I only have 2, and i could only find the one entry.

Gympie Cemetery is also on-line.

Good Luck with your research,

Ernene Smedley (nee Dillon)

Hi Leisa
Are you still looking for Soblusky family. My husband is from the Arabella Kelly Soblusky line. Do you know family story about King Jan Sobieski. Have gathered a lot of information over the years. If you are from Joseph line, I have an address from 1991 of 2 ladies in Bundaberg Qld. Arabella & Francis Lee lived in Victoria.

Hi Meren
Sarah Catherine Soblusky and Thomas Nelmes 15/9/1881 are my great grandparents. My grandmother always used to talk about a supposed connection to Polish royalty. Is there some truth in this ? I would be grateful for any information you may have. My grandfather was Thomas Edwin Nelmes, son of Sarah and Thomas Snr. I live in Sydney and am interested in this side of my family history. (My wife is Polish by the way)!

Kind regards
