    Undated photo taken about 1905. John Henry Goodman emigrated to Canada/USA in 1910 aboard the SS Tunisia, Ernie Goodman emigrated aboard the SS Commonwealth to Australia in 1914, and Joe Goodman emigrated to Australia aboard the SS Asturias in 1949. The rest of the family remained in England. Albert's daughter, Barbara Goodman, is a significant contributor to the family genealogy in England and Australia.

  • Notes 
    • Emigrated to Melbourne, Australia from London on 21 May 1914 on what was originally the Blue Anchor Line ship Commonwealth, sold to the P&O Line in 1910. Unfortunately, he died only two years later by drowning while fishing, according to John Goodman’s recollections.
