The Schatkowski and Hodda Families of Australia Updated February 18, 2001
About Our Family Research
I am looking for information on my mothers side of the family.
Mum's grandparents were William John Hodda born to William John Hodda & Laurie Susannah Golding in Aramac, Qld, Australia (around 1877/78) AND Mary Josephine or Mary Margaret Josephine ELLISON born to Frederick Ellison and Mary Caroline Lower on December 12th, 1879. William married Mary in Ipswich, Qld, Australia on April 24th 1902.
Mum's other grandparents were Frank Martin Henry Schatkowski - son of John Henry Schatkowski and Catherine Muckowski - born in Danzig, Poland(Germany). Frank married Bessie Elizabeth Gurd on June 18th 1897 in Townsville, Qld, Australia. Bessie was born to Charles Henry Gurd and Elizabeth Rooke in approximately 1878 at Alderhot, Hampshire, England.
I am hoping that someone may be able to assist me in this regard.
