I don't know if you can help me. I am looking for any information about a
Sister Josephine who was a nun in Singleton either towards the end of the
1800s or possibly up till the 1940s. I believe her name was Josephine
O'Connell. She was an or great-aunt of my mother's and I am trying to
locate any information about her that could lead to other family members.
Is there still a Convent in Singleton? and if so do you know if they would
still have their records from the end of the 1800s?
Any information or leads you could give me would be greatly appreciated.

I have a database of women who were nuns in australia......ed from an internet site some time back.
I checked O'Connell in Singleton but she was Sr Margaret....sorry.
Her Christian name wasn't Josephine either, sorry, but she was born in 1901...if that helps
