I am trying to locate a birth record of William Albert Burton who was born in about 1888, supposedly in Neutral Bay, Sydney. I am also trying to find any record of William Albert’s parents Geoffrey Edward Burton and Marion Allen. They were apparently from England. William Albert Burton married Ethel Maud Mole in Hay in NSW in 1924 and the marriage certificate says both Geoffrey Edward and Marion were deceased then. The marriage certificate lists Geoffrey’s profession as journalist and apparently there was a connection to the now defunct “The Wide World” magazine. I and others have not been able to find any trace of William Albert Burton or his parents (Geoffrey Edward Burton and Marion Allen) using the usual methods. Because of his possible link to The Wide World magazine and also possibly the Iberian Peninsula, I am hoping to obtain advice on where to look for overseas records such as British military records in the 1800s to see what can be found.
