Trove Tuesday

Trove Tuesday – Jacob Theisinger

This week, I am sharing articles I have found for my ex-husband’s 2x great grandfather, Jacob Theisinger.

The first article is his obituary.

Jacob Theisinger obituary
Established August 1842. (1901, September 16). Portland Guardian (Vic. : 1876 – 1953), p. 2 (EVENING). Retrieved May 30, 2017, from http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article63685601 (I have clipped the article to just show Jacob’s obituary, which was towards the top of the second column of the article, and the 4th column on the page).

The next article is his probate notice.

I found Jacob’s death notice by looking for articles for his wife Catherine.

I also found an article where Jacob was applying for Letters of Administration for his wife’s estate.
