hi guys
i have found on ancestry.com that you can search the QLD electoral rolls back to 1910, as i did researching my local area history, then i found when you look at the original record, you can change the date to find additional rolls for a particular area where you think the person you are looking for may be but do not appear in the search categories because of a change in spelling of the name, ie, vipon or vipond.
McLeish, Cairns, Davis, Strang, Sturgeon, in the following areas of Scotland, fife, stirlingshire, Haddington, Also in Australia in New South Wales, Queensland and Victoria

Hi Lucy and thank you for your kind offer.
I am researching Margaret McCREADIE and her children Jane, Isabella and John who emigrated to Innisfail circa 1882.

On his Army enlistment papers, John asserted he was 3-years old upon arrival in Australia. However, it must be stated he claimed his age as 30-years when he was, in fact, almost 37 years old; I have his Birth Certificate.

Regards and thank you once again.

Hi Q98,

Perhaps if you narrow down the search a little for me as these are hard copy rolls in book form - no search facility. Are you looking for the entire family from 1882 onwards? Only in Innisfail? Or a specific person in the family?

Cheers,
Lucy

Thanks Lucy, having located the three children, I am searching for Margaret (m.s. NELSON) McCREADIE.  The following sumarises what I am certain of:
a.  On her 1871 Marriage Extract, her age is recorded as 24 years, making her DOB circa 1847,
b.  From my searches of ScotlandsPeople, I have deduced she did not remarry, and
c.  The children retained their McCREADIE surname in Australia.

The following is provided to hopefully better direct your search on my behalf:
a.  John (b. 09 July 1879, Scotland), upon enlistment (14 February 1916) at Townsville, asserted he was residing at Mourilyan (Occupation Fitter & Turner) and was 3-years old upon arrival in Australia,
b.  Above appears to indicate the family's arrival during 1882, and
c.  HOWEVER, he also claimed his age as 30-years when, in fact, he was almost 37 years and
d.  Eldest of the siblings, Jane married in Innisfail during 1895 and is buried in Innisfail Cemetery.

Therefore, we can assume (how I loathe that word) the family arrived during period 1882-1895 and resided in or around Innisfail.

I am hoping this name is not too common but I am seeking any Electorol Roll lookup for a Alexander (Alex) RIDDELL in Brisbane between 1962 and 1965. Not sure if there is a middle initial / name.

Many thanks

Correction to my last post I don'ty think I will find Alex in 1962 as he was on a ship in March of that year however I am still interested in Electorol Roll in Brisbanne 1963-65, if possible.

Can someone check for any rolls between 1883 - 1910 for:

Robert Smith
Margaret Smith or Margaret McCreadie   Maybe in the area of Maryborough or Innsfail and should be together. Trying to find out when Robert Smith died.

Daisy Alice Wyatt 1934

Hello
Could you please check for Henry John HUCKLE. I have him in 1913 at Wide Bay as a Traveller but nothing after that.
Many thanks
