If you are looking on GR I think you have to purchase credits even if you have platinum subscription

I found the going out on Find My Past and the coming back to the UK on ancestry which I have subscriptions for

Don't have details of the 1950 voyage if you could send would be great. I take it there is no mention of his wife Edna Joyce or daughter Maris? am still looking for them. thanks, cheers, Jenni

Hi All,

Have turned up a record for a Robert Leonard Dare born Lewisham in the free births registered in Jan-March 1888 which might be him. I know he was previously married and divorced from Edith Samuels - haven't traced her yet. I think Lynski would be right. As his second marriage didn't take place till 27 nov. 46 the baby probably was registered as Anson - will check. Thank you all - this is getting very exciting. I need to find her. cheers, jenni

Ok

I think we should leave this thread here before anyone else duplicates any australian info which cherilyn has given you on her look up thread.

If you read the site guidelines it does ask not to duplicate requests about the same family to save other members looking for things that have already been found

The chances are he was born in Australia or even the US

Thank you all for your help - it has been fantastic. Having turned up the existence of Mavis, the daughter of Leonard and Edna Dare, of which I was unaware, she and Edna are now the prime focus of my search, so all help and suggestions most gratefully received. Again, thank you all so much. Jenni.
