Please can anyone help me? A GR member Clive Dawber and I made contact through GR a couple of years ago as we had not met since the 1960's in England. He is not answering my messages now and his direct email messages are coming back undeliverable. I guess he has changed his email address so wont get GR messages but might not realise this. He is the same age as me - 74. I now have the news that he asked me to get for him. I have a horrible feeling that he may not be alright. How can I find him again. Adelaide must be a huge place! Help please anybody there down under! Best regards and thanks for reading this.

Not down under! But have you tried White Pages? He isn't there but there is one Dawber entry for Adelaide. If all else fails might be worth checking out in case a relative.
Plus a couple of others NSW.

Have you Googled his name? There's a Manchester website he was still checking back in March.

Thanks - Will do. I am learning! (old dog - new tricks!)


Jennifer Report 27 Apr 2013 23:24

That's good - He was still alive in March 2013. It does not show his email address. I will have to create an account on that site before I can leave a message. What am I getting into eh?

You could also try Search at the top and search All Trees. I see he has 2 accounts on here. Also try contacting Christine who has him in her tree.

Neither of them are responding which makes me think there has been a change of email addresses


Jennifer Report 29 Apr 2013 14:46

I have managed to trace him! He has gone back to an old email address and not told anyone. And here was me thinking he had popped his clogs!! Thanks for your help.
