Hi all
I am trying to research the movements and career of my great-uncle John Adrian Adam. I am trying to establish his date of departure from UK about 1920 and arrival in Australia.Shipping lists, Australian records have all proved unproductive,so I am anxious to receive what limited information you can provide.

Hi "skipbs",
There is a 1978 NEW SOUTH WALES death for a John Adrian ADAM; if this is your fellow, his death certificate should state how long he was in AUSTRALIA (and each State) which will enable you to narrow your search.
A John Adrian ADAM, student, showing on AUSTRALIAN Electoral Rolls, 1954 PARKVILLE, VICTORIA 1958 & 1963 WEST SYDNEY.
There are two marriages showing for John Adrian ADAMs; QUEENSLAND 1935 / B022542 to Irina POPOV and NEW SOUTH WALES 1956 / 7885 to Olive Rosina MCKINNEY.
Irina divorced John ADAM 1938 on the grounds of adultery, Harold MUNRO was Irina's solicitor. Irina's guardian was an Ivan POPOV; Irina ADAM nee POPOV remarried NEW SOUTH WALES 1939 / 18621 to Harold MUNRO.
Irina divorced Harold MUNRO 1943 on the ground of desertion by reason of non-compliance with a decree for restitution of conjugal rights
Olive Rosina ADAM, Librarian, shows only on the 1963 AUSTRALIAN Electoral Roll at WEST SYDNEY on her own so possibly the couple parted company.

HI deeess
you will note from my post to Alison that I was unaware of how my information regarding John Adrian Adam crept on to this forum. However thank you kindly for the information you provided as a lot of it was news to me. May I ask from where did you get this information, because it may help me in my further research particularly regarding his arrival in Australia and subsequent movements.

Hello again deeess
Reviewing your post of 23 October paragraph 1 you state that the death certificate of John Adrian Adam will provide substantial information to narrow my search: however not being an Australian citizen trying to obtain a certificate is well nigh impossible.!!
Again thanks

hi deess
I have already thanked you for the information you gave to me recently but when I received the death certificate there was little information provided, apart from date of death and location. The remainder of the columns were annotated" unknown"!!!
