Can anyone help me please to look up Christopher M Booth living around Queensland, 1980 electoral reg living near Brisbon He was born 1948 ish in Yorkshire moved to Australia early 1950s with parents Edwin and Maud May.
thank you

Was his name Christopher Michael Booth?
I can see this man on Electoral rolls in Queesland from 1977 to 1980
He lives with Claire Jeanette Booth


GlasgowLass Report 24 Mar 2013 15:34

Hang on.... I have found the parents too.
They are on ERs from 1954 until 1980 and live in the SAME district as this Christopher Michael Booth.

Christopher does not appear with Edwin and Maud on any ER as a voter but there is Leo Godfrey Booth with them at 1963

Christopher Michael Booth then materialises with Claire Jeanette in 1977.
Cannot find him before this?


talbot Report 24 Mar 2013 15:40

hi Ann
yes they are the same, I can't get any further on than 1980 though ,have you any idea who to contact to find out more please


GlasgowLass Report 24 Mar 2013 15:50

Unfortuately Ancestry marriages only go up to 1950.
You may have to search current directories for him but I guess that Claire Jeanette was his wife?


talbot Report 24 Mar 2013 15:58

I too think Claire is his wife ,records are difficult to obtain in Aus, I just need a recent electoral roll but don't know who to contact
Have you found these records on world wide Ancestry?


GlasgowLass Report 24 Mar 2013 16:33

Yes found via Ancestry World Wide

If you go to white pages phone directory online there is one CM Booth in Qld (Palm Beach) and also a listing for C & J Booth. Worth a try. (residential search)


talbot Report 28 Mar 2013 22:43

thank you, will give it a try

The 'QLD State Library' (on-line) has an 'Ask Us' librarian service ... they will check current electoral rolls.

Thanks a lot Valerie ,I will give it a try.

Cherilyn I went on White pages got some numbers, when I find the right area codes I'm going to ring



Cherilyn Report 30 Mar 2013 02:06

Good luck! I am pretty sure Australia is 61 country code, then 7 (for Qld), then the number. (Assuming you are outside Oz!)


talbot Report 31 Mar 2013 00:00

Thanks Cherilyn,
I'm in the England- will let you know if I find them


talbot Report 24 Sep 2013 21:18

Thank you all very much an end to years of searching
