G J FALKINER Western Australia
« on: Tuesday 11 December 18 09:38 GMT (UK) »
My friend is desperate to locate any information on her father G J FALKINER born 1921-1927 Sudbury England.  Parents listed as John Henry FALKINER deceased (Stockbroker) and Edith Catherine LONGDEN. After years of researching we are not so sure this was his real name. Western Australian Marriage Certificate 1957 (to Mabel May DHUE) lists birthplace Sudbury, England. Listed in 1958 WA Electoral Roll, and on children's birth certificates.  Family moved to Melbourne in the late 1950s and he disappeared 1958. Any information appreciated.

Until we know for sure that he is still alive, I'm happy to see what can be found before the topic is removed.

That’s odd, shouldn’t it be until he is confirmed deceased, we should avoid providing information? Given he left his family, he may not want to be found and his information provided on a very public forum.

Is he not entitled to his privacy?

Here is the link to the Nominal Roll for WWII http://www.ww2roll.gov.au/  I mention this because on one of the several current threads there's information about him serving in the Australian Army.

Here on RootsChat we are very concerned that the privacy and security of the living is protected. For this reason we do not allow searches for living persons. Although we fully understand you would like recent information to add to your tree, or that you may wish to make contact with birth families, relatives you lost contact with when they immigrated to Australia, missing family or friends, we are afraid we are unable to assist you.

Electoral Rolls on the commercial websites end at 1980.

Perhaps our OP's friend should consider making direct contact with the Prinicipal Registrars of the various BDMs in each of the eight jurisdictions in Australia and ask what proof they need from her, to seek information about her father's possible death, as she can identify him from her own official birth certificate and her mother's marriage certificate.   Sometimes they will undertake a search, and when that happens there is usually a fee.   

http://www.naa.gov.au/collection/fact-sheets/fs89.aspx as noted at :
https://www.rootschat.com/forum/australia-resources-offers/ - stickied thread :
https://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=574209.0

ADD ... They would usually want a valid reason for searching for such a registration within the restricted access periods, and saying that you want to make contact or advise of someone's death or similar is not usually an adequate reason.  If you were to make such a request because you needed a medical history, that would usually be a valid reason.

There are many topics on Rootschat started by people looking for information who have no idea whether someone is alive or dead.

The skill of Rootschatters here is that they will use their personal knowledge of websites to provide information which will help either solve the mystery or provide clues as to where to look next.

To simply close down a topic within 20 minutes of posting could prevent closure for people who are not as knowledgeable of how or where to look.

As it stands, there have already been some useful links provided.
