Hi there

I am need of help finding an elusive ancestor. I am searching for any information on George Harold Cuming b. 1908 in South Australia. His parents were George Henry Cuming and Marion (Dolly?) Miller.
I especially would like to find his death date, his marriage details and names of children if possible please.
I know he lived an worked in Woomera abt. 1949 - 1951
and that's it really
Is there anywhere beside Anncestry.com, Trove, NAA I can look please
Thank you
KD.

Have you looked at familysearch

https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:KC7X-3LL

There seems to be a tree on Ancestry that has some of the details you are asking for, ie. death/burial dates (unless this is yours)

That famiy tree also has a reference to this article:

http://trove.nla.gov.au/ndp/del/article/5856534

He appears on electoral rolls in Victoria alone up until 1937 in Melbourne, employed in 'Sales'.

I am need of help finding an elusive ancestor.

Is he an ancestor or just a relative?

I can't thank you all enough for this information. I had not seen the family search link to him being a merchant seaman. Seaman does fit as he went on an adventure which was published when he was 18. - ref Trove but I can't see the tree attached to him there though. I'm a bit of a newbee, would you be able to help with that?
Its great to confirm his death as I think the names are mixed up with his father's who was George Henry Cuming. so it must be right
I have no record of a marriage which would be 'gold' where could I look?
thank you again
