Sorry I haven't found anything useful and I'm tiring fast.

I'm sure there will be others along to offer to help you search. 

Just to help the others ... I thought I had found the immigration record for the family under the surname of WOOD (rather than WOODS) and oldhippyone had used both versions in a pm to me.   The christian names of father, mother and daughter matched as well as the maiden name for mother.   But the immigration was in 1966 and oldhippyone is certain that surname is WOODS and immigration was in mid-70's.

adding : I have checked all the NSW deaths on ryerson for father which are in newspapers to which I have access (Sydney Morning Herald and recent Daily Telegraphs)

I don't know the forenames of the people you seek.  Electoral rolls can be accessed online up to 1980 and there is no-one with the surname WOODS or WOOD listed at Bennalong St, Merrylands, in 1977 nor in 1980.

Another place to try would be the Ryerson Index.  This index collects death (not births or marriages) notices from a selection of newspapers. It's run by volunteers and doesn't include all newspapers but it might be worth a look.

The White Pages phone directory may be useful also

Hi,

Depending on when in the 1970s they arrived, it is possible they did not enrol to vote,  there is a 'cut off ' date of arrival for UK citizens migrating to Australia to remain on Australian electoral rolls without seeking Australian citizenship. 

I think our OP may be striving to find living people.  There are many ways to go about that (on and offline), but RChat is about helping each other with our deceased ancestors.  Judith has given you two excellent suggestions for your considerations.

WOOD and WOODS are both popular surnames in New South Wales and like all other people alive in NSW they are entitled to privacy of the individual (including our names). 

Good Luck with your quest to find your friend who came to NSW in the 1970s.

the thing is I don't know what state they were in they emigrated from Swansea in the 70s to Sydney then because of the flood etc moved I'm trying to find the marriage of Removed woods birth 1961

You mention a flood caused them to move from Sydney  ...  err ... Suburban Sydney even in the 1970s covered a huge area and several rivers.  I dont recall any major floods in the 1970s when I lived in Sydney.

It would be unlikely for someone born 1961 to have married any earlier than 1977 (ie aged 16).  If after that flood they remained in NSW and there was a marriage,  it would be registered with the NSW BDM.  Because the general public are restricted from accessing non historic NSWBDM registrations the online indexes do not display marriage registrations for less than 50 years ago.
