Does anyone have any tips on how to make the most of my first time ever at NZSG National Conference. I have registered for lots of the workshops but am interested in other people's experiences at previous conferences.
I am a new subscriber to this list. I am looking for family connected to George
Edward THOMPSON who was born in Holbeach, Lincolnshire, England in 1861.
There is a patron submission on the IGI which states that George emigrated to
New Zealand where he married Emily SHEPHERD in 1889. They had three children:
George Tinsley THOMPSON in 1890
Emily Elizabeth THOMPSON in 1891
Bertha THOMPSON born and died in 1893.
Ordinarily patron submissions would not generate a lot of attention but in this
case I suspect the submitter may be on the right track. The George Edward
THOMPSON I am following from Holbeach was the son of Edward THOMPSON and
Elizabeth TINSLEY. So, seeing that as the middle name of their son makes me
think this George Edward is the same person.
I would appreciate hearing from anyone who has any connection to this family or
has any additional information on them.
BTW, George Tinsley THOMPSON died in Gallipoli in 1915 while serving with the
Auckland Mounted Rifles.
can anyone help please,i can't open the pages on the
actual newspapers pages ,all i get is the box with red
cross in the top left corner.happens on both Leighs &
mtia for help

I have a journal the 17th New Zealand Reinforcements of New Zealand Expedition Forces Aboard H.M.N.Z Transport 65 (S.S. "Pakeha") 1916.
28 pages of instructions stories poems, andd lists of men. On the last page there are signatures of 38 men. Some of the signatures are a little difficult to read, they also have their number so if they belong to you their number may help.

On the WWI Nominal Rolls there is a small section of
the recipients of the New Zealand Cross, something to
do with the land wars I think.

I've been using xtramail for the past 10 days since my PC's hard drive failed. I thought the messages were kept on xtramail for 30 days, but all messages from the past 10 days disappeared today, including some received this morning. If you've e-mailed me with a request in the past 10 days, please re-send your message and I'll forward it to my work e-mail until my new hard drive is installed in my PC.
F. Feist (bought the store from Wm. W. Corpe)
John Smith (he had the first school.. RoundBush at Clareville, before Taratahi No2. and Clareville School as it became)
Then Bishop. 1914 era.
This would be prior 1916. So anyone with those names.. please get in touch... especially John Smith... sadly his headstone is shattered at the cemetery.
Public Hall (Clareville Hall)
F. T. Meenkin, correct spelling is Menken. he had land on both sides of the road and up Chester Road as well.
This land is on Main Road north and south approach to Clareville.
I have been searching through some documents today!!
Sorenson was also around Feist store..but not on the documents I was looking at..
Hope I have spelt it correctly.. found that he had land down near Arnolds Line, which later became Dalefield Road. South Carterton...think two F's, but on the land deed, only one F..
Some road I had never heard of before, went right across his land... GILES STREET. obviously never made into a road.. just paper.. Section 214.
Hope this helps someone... I know of two people doing this name..
I am interested in the marriage of Elizabeth J NORTHCOTE to Frederick Herman Emil CALGHER/COLGHER in 1884. I want to find out if Elizabeth was a daughter of James and Ann NORTHCOTE and therefore connected to my family. I know I can get the marriage certificate but as it is sort of a 'side kick' of my family I thought I would try the list first in the hope that someone else was researching them. Willling to share information if connection found.
