Help Req re: Russell Gosling on Ancestry...

Postby Cachalot6972 » Mon Nov 26, 2018 11:16 am

The following person seems to disappear without trace after the 1939 Register.
Birth: Russell K E Gosling 1935 Q1 Gloucester 6A 385 [Evans]. In the 1939 Register, his dob is given as 24 Jan 1935. There don't seem to be any marriages or deaths for him in either Fmp or FreeBMD.
On Family Search, up until 2008, he is living with his family in Pennsylvania.
On Ancestry, there are two Russell K Gosling entries in the 'Immigration & Emigration results for Russell Gosling'. Unfortunately, I don't have a sub for Ancestry, so could some kind person be good enough to let me know what those entries say please; when he emigrated, job, etc.

Thanks for any help you can give.

Phil

Thank you very much MoVidger!
That raises the question of how come he was flying? Everybody else I have leaving the UK for foreign parts has gone by ship. Because I have an address for him (from the White Pages), I may just write and ask him!
Thanks again,
Phil

My grandmother flew from the UK to New York in 1957; whereas my mother sailed from the UK to Canada in 1953 (she was terrified of flying).

Unfortunately, Google hasn't (yet) come up trumps with the cost of a 1957/1960 London-New York airline ticket, but it would be interesting to know how much it was...

Thank you JMcK! Even for today it's a not inconsiderable amount of money. He either had a very good job or worked for the airline..!
