Oh. And ancestry didn't come up trumps for me, either. Betty

Thanks Sue :) This journey has certainly taught me to verify any info received. Not to take things for gospel. :)

I've been informed by the NZ branch that there are no census records, and the electoral rolls are on Ancestry. So I shall start a search there. :)

g'day all. I wonder if someone is able to go through Census/electoral rolls from 1914 to seek Robert? If he was born 1885-1890 he would be in his 20s. I'm curious to know if he lived (possibly on the North Island) in New Zealand before working on the Mangahao Power Station. Maybe with a wife, Marjory. Unfortunately, I don't have anyone else who can physically browse the records, and it's a bit far to just "hop on a plane".  :-[ Many thanks. Betty

I went sideways in my searching and contacted the "owner" of George Heyne Family Tree. Below is her response to my question regarding a quick search for Robert Stevens/Seale in NZ.

I have sent you another invitation to my tree. Hope it works.
Yes, Avice spent many years in NZ before returning to India and marrying George Heyne. I have searched NZ census returns on Ancestry but cannot find your father under either name. Perhaps there are some power station records and you could contact whomever is responsible for them?


Cheers, Betty

G'day. I'm seeking some information on a Robert Edward Seale, (born circa 1889) who worked for Trevillian and Clarke in India. I have little information on the man, and wondered if anyone can help with a background on him. Muchly appreciated, Betty

Hi All. No, I haven't given up, just been busy away from the computer. I've been in touch with a RC researcher from UK and NZ. Re NZ - asked if she could look up the 1922 electoral roll. And to maybe backtrack Robert's movements. As to the poor UK researcher, I asked for details on Bruce Seale, Robert Seale, Gunner Seale, RP Grant. Also contacted the naa uk site. I'll contact GRO, pending the result of the UK researcher. Any thing else for me to do? :) Cheers, Betty
