I have been helping my mother trace her family tree back for a couple of years now. I'm hitting a brick wall when it comes to ancestors that have come from England and Ireland. I'm looking for any details about my family in Ireland and England.

David Carey was born in 1845 at Tipperary, Ireland and died in 1922 at Ballarat, Victoria, Australia. He married Sophia Collins born in 1850 Milford, Wiltshire, England. David's parents, I think, are Thomas Carey and Ellen Unknown. I know absolutely nothing about either of them.

Sophias parents are James Collins (1827 Milford, Wiltshire England - 1869 Landsborough, Victoria Australia) and Louisa Dicketts (1828 Milford, Wiltshire, England - 1908 St Arnaud, Victoria, Australia). James' parents are John Collins and Betsy Unknown. I know absolutely nothing about either of them.

Any help that anyone can give me would be greatly appreciated. Thanxs, Rebecca.
