My wife's grandfather Edward Oliver Vincent, always claimed that he was born in Norway.Sadly he never elaborated and passed way in 1977, virtually a pauper. The rumour was that at some stage of his life, while working as a crewman, he jumped ship in Sydney, NSW, Australia. Last year I managed to obtain a copy of his Marriage Certificate and it clearly states that his father was Walter Harold Vincent and his mother was Ethel Olga Andersen. My wife would dearly like to find out more about Edward's life and where to obtain a copy of his birth certificate. Likewise with his parents; birth, marriage and death certificates.
