The Australian electoral Rolls are available to view at all Electoral offices, Australia wide. The problem for you is that it has to be done in person, they will not give information via email, online or over the telephone.
After Christmas, I have a list of people to search and intend going into my local office; So add the name here and I'll have a look for you.

I should add, I can only view people on the current roll so if they are deceased I won't see them. But then if you have the area/town to search I can give all registered voters of the same name in that area.
Then it's probably a case of writing to those people and asking, " Are you related" Tedious but there's no other way.

Many thanks, \\the people I am trying to trace are

Caroline Paterson MacKenzie b.1938 - I have found a Caroline Paterson King married to a Douglas King, Living in Geraldton Aust. 198o, and because of the middle name was trying this, but could get no further than 1980

Jacqueline MacKenzie b. 1940 - possibly married

John Arthur MacKenzie. 1942
These are cousins, my Uncle forgot to tell us about.... Men.

Many thanks for your help,

Okay so they could all still be alive.
Have you looked in whitepages
Get a map and check out surrounding areas - To coin an aussie phrase 'you never,never know if you never have a go'
Anyway, I'll check them out next week, hopefully they arn't closed for the holidays.

I have found Caroline Paterson King, living at Caprice road, Geraldton, in 2008, but can not find her in whitepages or anything. Not sure where to turn now, unless there is a later electoral roll. Thanks in advance
