I canít see them in Otorohanga Electoral Roll, only in  directories which give his occupation as fishmonger, but there are no addresses.

Perhaps someone else will have more luck!

Hello.

Through the period you speak of, there are a number of adverts that were placed in the New Zealand Herald by Len seeking help in a fish shop / restaurant. I spotted March 1938 and again May 1941. So there will still be old Otorohanga residents who remember them.

Alan.


PS There are also birth notices in the NZ Herald and files at NZ Archives Wellington, but I'm assuming you have already checked them out.

That is the one I can see looks like it could be on Maniapoto Street Otorohanga

Hi Gaye

No street number given on electoral rolls, but they are in Otorohanga from 1938 (a year after their marriage).

1938 - Waikato - Waitomo Electoral roll

JAKICH - Ljubomir - Maniapoto Street - restaurant proprietor / Mary -- married

1946 - same roll

JAKICH - Ljubomir - restaurant prop. and Mary - married - at Te Kanawa Street, Otorohanga

1949 - same roll and address

also 1949 - on Auckland - Otahuhu Supplementary No. 2 roll (suggesting that they had just moved to that locality).
She is now listed as "Marija" -- Ljubomir JAKICH, storekeeper] ... both residing at  1 Beach Road, Eastern Beach :

If you are interested in researching the history thereof, there are a number of interesting clips.

Apparently the probable [assuming only one fish shop / restaurant] owner of 1938 was prosecuted for running a large bookmaking/betting business from the back room. Not long after an advert appeared for the lease of the restaurant.
