Hi Peter,
if you pu some names and dates up that your'e looking for,someone might be able to find them on a leaving UK passenger list which goes up to year 1960.

I have been researching for my grandfather who I found that he died in 1962 and have been told that some of his children emigrated to Australia in the 1950 or 1960's, perhaps even later I'm not sure.

I haven't had any success in tracing any relatives in the UK and enquire if anyone can help with advice on how I go about tracing them if they did go to Australia? All I have is birth certificates to work with.

Many thanks in advance if anyone can help.
