    Dear Sir/ madam,
    I am looking for information on William Webster and the results of elections he was involved in. I have some old family papers where he was involved in a dispute in Annandale Ward. I do not have a year but it was in the early 1900 and apparently the Mayor changed the voting day from a Saturday to a Tuesday (April 18th) to affect the outcome. I have a pamphlet put out by William Webster whom was originally voted in imploring people to vote.
    I know it is a tall order but any help would be appreciated.
    Yours sincerely,
    Les Robinson

    My name is Diane and I am trying to confirm the Date Of Birth of my second great grand Uncle: Frederick E W Smith, ex Alderman & Mayor of Annandale. Died 1929. I believe he may have been born in Sussex England. Do you have any information on his birth location ? Or could you direct me to a records site please.
    Many thanks,
