Hi Patchem and Marie Celeste,

Sorry about the delay in replying:

Edgar Rees Richards b. 16 June 1898 in Ballinacourty, County Waterford.

No idea where he and his wife Edith nee Dunbar b.1897 went after their marriage in India.

Douglas William Dunbar b. 20 July 1909 in Karachi, India - I can find no record of a marriage or Death.

GinaS - the outgoing 1955 record states that Douglas William Dunbar had an Australian passport, what else can you tell us about him so we can try to find him?

Have you looked to see if they are in anyone's tree on genes?

Where did Douglas start from?

Have you their dates of birth?

The sailing lists that you looked at were for what countries, and what years?

Thank-you

Douglas William Dunbar b.1909 went to Melbourne in 1955.

I can find no trace of him since his arrival in Melbourne.

also

Edgar Rees Richards b.1898 Ireland married Edith Dunbar b.1897 in India in 1920.

I can find no trace of them since their marriage.

I have looked at sailing lists - no joy.

Would appreciate any help or suggestions,

Regards, GinaS
