I would like to say a big THANK YOU, to all of you (and there were heaps)
who took the time to check out my web site and send me their comments. I am
happy to hear most of you liked it, and those who had suggestions I have
tried my best to implement the changes, of course some things will take a
little longer to do.
For those who wrote saying that they are wanting to make up sites of their
own, I would like to suggest the Legacy family tree programme, as this comes
with a web site maker and it helped me a lot. I may never have got it up
and running at all if it had not been for this programme.

I've been slowly putting together my family tree at the following web
site. I still have a lot to do on it but I've at least made a start at...
I would be pleased if some of you nice folk out there would take a peek
and tell me what you think, and what changes I should make.
Thanks for you time
I have a Jannette JOHANSEN dsu. of Anders and Elizabeth May nee SWENSEN getting married on 25 July 1891 in the registrar's office in Woodville. She married Thomas Joseph MOSEN.
I don't know what happened to her because in 1896 Thomas and Edith May POPE had their first child together. They did not marry until 1940.
I have checked deaths under MOSEN and JOHANSEN until 1912, I have also checked marriages under both names until 1910.
I have my fingers and toes crossed that someone out there has a link or a suggestion on where to go to from here.
In smoggy, oops I mean sunny, Christchurch.
I just wanted to say thank you for your very helpful
replies to my "Rowes on Arapawa" inquiry. Thanks to
those of you who volunteered your time and resources,
and a special thanks to Coralie Smith and Jack Clarkson,
who ultimately provided contact information for my aunt,
I am thrilled that I was able to locate my aunt through
this list. I cannot adequately express why it was so
important to me that I find her...but I'm hoping she
will understand. I have mailed a letter to her, and
will soon start checking my snail mail box for a reply!

I need some help. I have a John JAMES who came to NZ in about 1865. I don't know the boat. He is thought to have come with his brother (name unknown), and his brother's wife.
Does anyone have access to anything, eg shipping records, that could help me find out how he got here and with whom.
I have my fingers crossed that someone is researching the brother!!
PS. I think John JAMES came from Liverpool.

Does anyone know about the seven year rule if your spouse deserted or went missing.
The time period is 1840-1850.
If the person left here in NZ wanted to marry again- would they have had to make application for permission?
Would there be any record available??
Anyone have any ideas please ?
Hoping someone may help me.

I am researching a family on N.Z. West Coast. Margaret ROSS and William
Married in Timaru 12.9.1867
Children Danny Minnie and Margaret birth dates unknown. Minnie married a
Tom EDWARDS and had sons Ross and Bruce. Bruce had a Men's Outfitters shop
on the Coast , married and had two daughters. This is all I know at present,
so need some help from the list.
Hello, my name is Allison, I have been trying for weeks to contact Leith
Hutton but have not had any luck with my emails, does anyone have contact
with this person,? I have his address as Palmerston North, New Zealand, the
reason for this is for genealogical purposes, On his home page he has my
grandfather Frank Gregson Warne who came to Canada when he was in his teens
but he has not been able to find any other info about him. I live in Canada
and have lots of info to share with him.I apoligize to any one if I am in
error trying to contact him in this way.
Where would I find information for immigrants from Scotland to New
Zealand 1840-2 ?
My gg grandmother was Margaret Oliver (nee Brown) b Edinburgh Sct 1799,
d 1859 Melbourne Australia. Her death cert says 16 years in New Zealand,
2 years in Victoria.
She married James Oliver b Glasgow 1800, James Oliver b Glasgow 1800,
of Black Watch Regiment. He was later a publican, probably in NZ and/or
Aus. I cannot find his death cert.
George b 1829 St Cuthberts, Edinburgh, Sct, d 1899 Melbourne Aus, marr
1862 Alice Harley Dunedin NZ
Agnes b 1831 Errol, Perth Sct. Only further record of Agnes, listed as
dead on Margaret's death cert 1859.
Maria b 1834 Perth, Sct d 1858 Melbourne Aus, mar 1856 James William
Mitchell St Pauls Melbourne Aus
Benjamin Joseph Bell b c1838 Sct, d 1908 Newcastle NSW Aus, mar 1864
Frances Ellen Richards Newcastle NSW Aus.
Sarah Gibbs b 1840 Paisley Renfrew Sct d 1920 Melbourne Aus
What was happening in Scotland at that time that would make emigration
What towns were established in New Zealand that they could have come to
I would expect them to have been assisted immigrants.
Any and all suggestions, help and advice would be gratefully received.

I have been impressed by the recent web pages which members have listed
so I've had a go at making one for myself. You will find it at:
I'd be interested to receive feed back from listers regarding the
success of the pages. ie. Is the objective clear? Is the information

I am new to this list and am researching my family names of: Paterson,
Boult, Gee, Hill, Loveday. My main line is Paterson and Boult. My
Paterson's came from Reay, Scotland to Otago, NZ in 1862 on the Jura &
NSW Australia 1858 on the Parsee.
Anybody reasearching these names can find a gedcom on my homepage listed
below. If you do download the gedcom please sign my guest book on the
home page, this allows me to have some idea who is getting it. I am only
to happy to share my info.

I have been searching for some time for a great uncle
William Patrick CULLEN and recently discovered while
checking his mothers will and probate that he was in
New Zealand. This is what I do know =
William Patrick CULLEN CREEK b1863 Kyneton Victoria Australia.
Father= Patrick Cullen Mother Eliza Creek
On Victoria's BDM he is registered under his mothers maiden name of Creek.
On his mothers will it states simply William Patrick Cullen, so I am
assuming that he dropped the Creek.
I am also researching SURPLUS
John SURPLUS (b1848)and Ann TURKINGTON (b1845)
from Co Armagh to (Milton, Sth Island) New Zealand
they had three children twins John and Ann (b1875) (not sure if they stayed
and Thomas (b1878) who went to Victoria Aus.
Many thanks in advance (hopeful aren't I)
I have a copy of a book by Mac Larsen about the first Norwegian families to come to NZ and settle in the camp in Mauriceville. It contains quite a few names and dates and will do lookups for anyone.
That would be the Hutt River..

Any one with connections to the following names from the Otahuhu - Onehunga
- Auckland area
Susan PARAGEE/PARIGI married James BAKER 17 Sep 1872 Auckland
Margaret PARAGEE/PARIGI married William MORRIS Auckland
Their father Angelo PARAGEE/PARIGI died in 1854 and their mother Roseanne
MCMULLEN remarried George SMITH in 1858.
Other children of the second marriage all born in Auckland.
Charles, Roseanne, Michael Thomas, David George, Maria, William James
Nice simple every day names but hard to get a lead on them, so would
appreciate help if you have them in your family tree.
I wanted to say thanks to Murray Reid of Howick. He saw a message on
the list that I was looking for descendants of Allison Hopwood who was
last known to be living in the Auckland area. He found that there were
a few in the phone book so he gave one of them a call. The first call
hit the jackpot & today I had an email from my second cousin Janet who
is Allison's daughter! When I finally make it back to my birthplace (
within the next 5 years), I will be taking Murray out for a beer to
say thanks for his "random act of genealogy"! One of the best things
about doing family history is the wonderful things that people will
do. I try to repay that by doing what I can for someone else.
Remember, I will be going to the library which has the microfilms of
the British Columbia BDMs soon, so if you find anyone on the online
just let me know & I'll send you an unofficial photocopy.
