Hello from Geelong, Australia
« on: Monday 25 August 08 08:58 BST (UK) »
Good evening one and all!

Just new here, so thought I might pop in and say Hi!

A quick question also, does anyone have access to look up Australian electoral rolls at all??

Hi Belinda
Welcome to rootschat.  If nobody picks up on your query you may need to repost it on the Australia board.  If you look at the look up offers on that it will help you to see what is available.  What sort of date are you talking about?

thanks andrea!

any chance you could point me in the right direction to the australian boards? i'm trying to pinpoint the time when a particular relative was living in australia. trying to narrow this down might help a search of immigration/emmigration records.

thanks again :)

Thanks everyone!

And thankyou for the topic move! :)

I'm searching for a lad by the name of Leander Johnson. He was married to Sarah Annie Wagner (Waggon?). They married in New Zealand, and came over to AUS with some of their children, and had more children when they arrived here. They lived in NSW for as long as I know, until I think that Leander and Sarah moved back to NZ...

Having said that, I've also been told that one of their daughters Rosetta Louise Johnson was adopted by them.

I have three other children to them that I know of, which i found searching the death records on the NSW BDM historical indexes.

those three kids, and their death dates are:

10659/1895  JOHNSON  CHARLES H
14762/1895  JOHNSON  ERNEST
70900/1972  JOHNSON  JAMES EMIL

and Rosetta's death details are:
Registration Number  Last Name  Given Name(s)  Father's Given Name(s)  Mother's Given Name(s)  District  Purchase Certificate 
32313/1967  CUPITT  ROSETTA LOUISE  LEANDER  SARAH ANNIE  BOWRAL   

Thanks in advance, I'm sure I may have left some stuff out, but that's all I can think of at the moment. Apparently Leander & Sarah had a largeish family - around about 8 kids or so??

Will be writing off to the NZ BDM people tomorrow, but just not sure if they can help?

Belinda.

In 1930 there is a Leander John Johnson listed at Tahmoor Road, Thirlmere, NSW. Occupation = rigger
There's an Olive Johnson, home duties with him.

There's also an Irene Madoline Johnson of Independant Means listed as just being of Tahmoor.


Is this the Leander you are looking for, or maybe one of the sons?

There's an entry for 1936 I can transcribe if you think they're part of the family.
