Is there another site other than www.imdb.com that could tell me about an actor I believe may have been part of my family?  He was in films in the 60s and only played small roles so wasn't famous.  It's just out of curiosity.  imdb doesn't have any information on him other than the other films he was in.

Internet Movie Data Base relies on contributions from fans.

The way to get a biography of your relative on their website is to write one.

You may have to do research yourself.

You could start by finding out who the actor's agent was. This could be tracked down through old editions of Spotlight, the listing of actors and their agents. If you live in London, the British Film Institute library may have copies of Spotlight. Otherwise, try Equity, the Actors Council.

If the actor/reletive is dead, then try to get a copy of their birth or death certificate, and find out if there is any relation to your family.

Morrisonker, if you tell us who he is we may be able to come up with something which would help your search.

His name was John Wallace, he's listed as John Wallace (V) on imdb, there are a few more guys with the same name, but that's the guy I'm after. 

Hi

I am a new member, I read your post and agree with the advice Don1 & tonymclark gave you.

I am a member of Equity and checked back to 57 for a John Wallace, there is no listing for him in membership but that is not all together unusual.

Is John Wallace his real name or stage name, was he  an Equity Member under another name?

When did John die?  Equity might have been informed.

Name a couple of films he was in.

Equity may be able to supply his agent's details and John's address at the time so that information could be checked.
