Jessie POWELL is great (x2) granddaughter of Elizabeth PHIPPS.
Jessie had been married less than 8 years to Allen Bush when her life was cut short. I do not know the cause of Jessie's death or if she left any children. Perhaps a cousin who reads this may be able to fill me in.

Barely three weeks after Jessie's death this notice appeared in the Legal Notices Section of the local newspaper.

It was a simple task for me to use their Collection Search to see if this was so.

Of course I want to see what's in the Probate File, I have three options.
If I was in a a hurry I could pay to have the file copied and sent to me for $AU32.50
Centre's Reading Room is currently closed due to Covid-19 the second option of engaging a researcher or asking a friend to copy the file for me is not an option.
I'm a patient old girl so will take the third option and wait until I can next visit the Reading Room. I can preorder the file from the website so that it will be waiting for me when I arrive.
How will I remember to look for it? I have that covered in my genealogy software program. The Family Historian allows me to create lists, I have created lists for several of the repositories I visit. So I have put a note with details of Jessie's Probate Packet in the List for the NSW Archives that I will consult prior to my visit.
I love to connect with cousins and fellow researchers. Should you find any errors in my post or have additional information please contact me.
