Hi all, I hope that someone can help me find the above person. He is my father and I am not sure whether he is still alive or not. The family haven't seen or heard from him since the early 60's. He was last seen in Melbourne Australia, he spoke then about moving up to Dandenong. My name is Vicki Holland nee Snelling, I have a brother called Peter David Snelling. My mother's name is Doris May Snelling. Any little piece of information will help me.
Thankyou

Welcome to the boards, Vicki.

I suggest that you alter your posting title to include 'Australia'.
That way, people who have experience of Australian records will see your post and can offer help.

Hi Vicki ...the 'VIC State Library' has an 'Ask Us' librarian service (on-line)...they will check electoral rolls past & present. Hopefully they will trace him for you.

Hi Linda, Sorry I think that you got the wrong end of the stick. I know that you are not my husbands first wife. I am looking for my father. He was born in east London in 1925. I just want to know whether he is still alive. sorry if I upset you. Vicki :-( :-( :-(

Vicki – you’ve misunderstood Rose’s post.

She suggests that you use the Search all members trees function (top right of the screen) and see who else is researching Albert J Snelling b 1926 from Hackney. Last year, a member called Linda had him listed on her tree.
If you repeat the search, you can click on the ‘find out more’ button next to the listing and send Linda a message.

The comment
Researching:
I am not related to you and I'm not your husband's first wife!

Is intended to stop people she helps assuming that there is a family relationship. Many of us who try to assist other members will have added something relevant.

...can't see any death for him on the 'Ryerson Index' - which has newspaper death records up to present day.
