I am looking to find information about the Collings family who moved to Tanzania.

Can anyone give any advice, please?  Many thanks

Thanks for your response.

The last definite record I have of the family is 06/04/1955 arriving in the UK from Dar Es Salaan.

I am particularly looking for info about Harry Collings c.1914 and his Daughter.

They have given as their future residence Tanzanyika/England & expected stay was 5/6 months.

There was a possible death for Harry in the 1960's but that has been eliminated and there is no trace of Stephanie in the UK so I am assuming that they went overseas again.

As the daughter is possibly still alive you will have to remove her name from your post.  Rootschat does not allow us to post details for anyone who is probably alive

Hi,

I think this is Harry and Elizabeth leaving the UK in 1958, the birth dates match the 1955 incoming passenger details :)


Departure Date:  11 Sep 1958
Port of Departure:  Southampton, England
Destination Port:  Cape Town, South Africa
Ship Name:  Southern Cross

Harry COLLINGS
Class of Travel:  Tourist
To:  Cape Town
DOB:  11.03.14
Address in UK:  c/- National Overseas and Grindlays Bank Ltd, 13 St. James Sq. London SW1
Occupation:  H.M. Overseas Civil Service
Citizen:  England
Country of last permanent residence:  Tanganyika
Country of intended future permanent residence:  Tanganyika

with the same details,

Elsa*  COLLINGS  22.11.14  Housewife

*it looks like the s & a have been typed over something else, maybe it said Eliz ?


Their daughter is not with them.


Regards,
Daisy

Do you know the last year Harry lived in Liverpool and any possible address / area ? and if he married in Liverpool - his wifes maiden name - might possibly know the wifes family name if they are in South Liverpool... :)
