Today I obtained the Death Certificate of my 2nd great grandfather Robert John Steven Sellers who died in Sydney on 18 Jan 1908.
In the picture below I am trying to read the middle of the three columns which is headed:
Where born and how long in the Australasian Colonies or States
I believe I have been able to make out all but one word (indicated by ??????).
Glasgow, Scotland ?????? 4 years, Victoria 29 years, South Australia 14 days, N.S.Wales
What is the word on the line after Scotland (which I have shown much larger below)? Could it just be "About"?
Where born is actually incorrect because he was born 1854 in Albany, New York, USA of parents who were British Subjects (they married 1850 in Glasgow).
He did live in Victoria for 4 years (1874-1878), and South Australia for 29 years (1878-1907) plus a few days before the 14 days he spent on leave in NSW.
