Hi Alison, Not alot of records in Tas mention parents names,,,,,esp if born overseas,,,,,so I guess unless you bump into family members there won't be any real way of knowing. There are a few William LODGE's,,,,none convicts,,,,,who married and only 1 born around 1822... LODGE, WILLIAM Gender:Male Birth 1822 - Marriage/Relationship: 1857 - OATLANDS,Tasmania(WEBB, ELIZA) Death:
Children: 209990LODGE JOSEPH 1858 209985LODGE JAMES 1860 209986LODGE WILLIAM 1863 209989LODGE MARY ANN 1865 209987LODGE MARTHA ELIZABETH 1867 209988LODGE SARAH ANN 1870
Sometimes either buying certs or posting on Family "reunion/searh" sites is the only way to go. Have you searched LODGE on genforum??? It may have others looking for same names.....OR find a tassy site and check if they have any further info...
