Australian electoral records

Can I do an Australian electoral search online from here in the UK?



Ian Report 17 Jul 2021 00:02

I have tried going to the local state and national libraries route no searches being done (ask the library)



Ian Report 17 Jul 2021 00:05

The last record I have found is the death of the father in 1972 Woomera

Think it’s limited because Australia has strict privacy laws

Some are on ancestry but only if you have worldwide subs

On Ancestry at least, Australian ERs only go up to 1980.

Jenkinson is the family name Ian's looking for:

Per that thread:
"The wife of John Jenkinson [ the man who died 1972 ] was Joan FLITCROFT b1935 they married in 1954 in Carlisle, England not found her death yet in Australia"

Are you able to post John Jenkinson's children's names, Ian ? - no other detail if they're still living.

Have you looked in the phone book - as you're posting now on FLR?

Latest ER's South Australia on Ancestry appear to be 1951 (but even then look incomplete). As said on previous thread, the records don't appear to be as up to date as other states (others 1980)

FMP finish earlier

The National Archives Australia

789 Jenkinson Joan
790 Jenkinson William J
791 Jenkinson John H
This family was to disembark at Melbourne

The Ryerson index has several death notices listed for Joan Jenkinson but all can be discounted looking at Electoral rolls.
See below
JENKINSON Joan Funeral notice 01JUL2015 Death 77 late of Raymond Terrace Newcastle Herald 04JUL2015
The 1977 Electoral Roll also has David William Jenkinson
at the same address as Joan at Raymond Terrace

and another possibility from Ryerson index

JENKINSON Margaret (Joan) Death notice 12APR2009 Death 74 at Red Cliffs Sunraysia Daily (Mildura) 14APR2009
1977 Electoral has this lady at Block 97 Red Cliffs
There is a Charles Harper Jenkinson at the same address.
