Can anybody help find the above person who emigrated to Australia 50 years ago? I have a facebook plea from his sister Julia Stevens here in the UK. Thanks in anticipation

I just checked Free BMD and see Wandsworth was his place of birth. Sorry.

Online travel records only go to 1960 I,m afraid

Let us hope that one of our Australian members reads the thread when they get up! We don't have much to go on but an exact date of birth is good. He is on 2 members trees - one is the lady who is his sister and one other - a Peter Jamieson who she has probably checked with but I will check. Thanks Shirley.

Please remove the exact DOB

The info you have given is all that is needed for identity theft

Advise the sister to look in the Australian phone books

Whoops! How do I change it please?


Jacqueline Report 20 May 2015 13:08

Click on 'edit' on your original post, and just alter the title Nov 1946 is OK


jenVG Report 20 May 2015 13:19

Thanks. I should know better. Senior moment?

He went to Australia circa 1965 and got married there. Thanks anyway Yvonne


malyon Report 20 May 2015 21:44

cant see him on the passenger list only that one


jenVG Report 20 May 2015 22:19

The sister who is looking for him says he went to Oz 50 years ago and she did have a photo of him there with his wife - so if anyone can look for a marriage in Oz some time after 1965 it may give us a clue.
regards and thanks

The David Guthrie who went to New York had different parents to our chap. His parents were Alexander Guthrie (1921) and Ivy Guthrie nee White.

Could this be him

Henry David b 1946 along with Ethel May


jenVG Report 21 May 2015 09:02

Could not see that as it timed out. He was David Guthrie so don't know about a Henry. Thanks anyway.


Valerie Report 21 May 2015 09:44

Jennifer -do try the' National Archives of Aus' again .... and 'log in again' - or pm me and I will forward the info.


jenVG Report 21 May 2015 12:33

That is him! His sister thought it possible was was using his mum's maiden name of White - possibly because of the desertion?
How can his sister see that information on Dept of Immigration?


jenVG Report 22 May 2015 11:00

We have learnt of a death notice in Geelong Advertiser Oct 2009 which may be him so that is being followed up on as I write. Hopefully it will be a different David Guthrie.Thanks to all.

Jennifer I had checked out death notices in the background when I read your post first

there are several references to the death being published in the Geelong Advertiser but this one

GUTHRIE David John
Death notice 13OCT2009
Death (age) 54
Geelong Advertiser 19OCT2009

suggests it is not him I think? dob 1946 would have made him 63 in 2009

I'm somewhat concerned about all the personal info in the post by Carrie ... the person or his family might not want these details of his personal history displayed on the internet where search engines find them ... google finds this thread now on a simply search for his name and 'Australia' ... editing those details out now that Jennifer has seen them would seem wise
