I'm researching the following family members and would be happy to hear from anyone who has any connections:
Matthew Davison Spriggs b 1939 Salford near Manchester, UK
Matthew Davison Spriggs b1862, Newcastle on Tyne, UK
They were uncle and nephew and emigrated to New Zealand, living in Napier where they were both cabinet makers.
The younger Matthew married Clara Jane Arnold in New Zealand and they had 4 children:
- Two daughters M.G, Spriggs and G.K.Spriggs and two sons:
- Charles Arnold Spriggs b 1890 d 1919 when he was killed in action. He married Elsie Olive Younghusband.
- Ernest Ronald Spriggs b 1898. He became a mayor of Napier and married Kathleen Hera Hitchcock.
Just to make life easier.
I have created a "shortcut" for the £ sign in Word.
You will find the provision for it on the bottom of the Symbol page.
Mine is "alt p" You can create your own, including "alt 156".

I have had a go with your method. Worked beautifully. What I was wondering
was why the usual Alt and 156 on number pad or 0163 on number pad wouldn't
work this time on Word when I'm sure it has in the past!
Seemed odd to me. Now I know your way I'll do it or be sneaky and cut and
Thanks List members.
It goes perfectly okay on Email, but doesn't seem to play ball on Word for me at the moment, but has done it properly in the past. [alt and 156 on number pad] I've ended up using Rachel's suggestion of Cut and paste for now. Will play with other options later. Thank you all very much
Just read a friends email, she says that South Wairarapa Council are going to have a wall of the old headstones.. has anyone a copy of this please to scan for me...
This is for the WW1 original headstones... minus TWO!!
Edward Hunt Cunliffe went home with family
Thomas Wm. Spence King went home to family... this one to Kamo, it has been restored, cleaned and freighted to Kamo, and will be put with other family members... the family are waiting for me to get up there to attend the service.. but am not allowed to travel at present, undergoing too many medical tests..
So perhaps we can finally look forward to seeing whats left of these lovely headstone in a wall of Rememberance, cant say I haven't tried!!
If anyone has one original headstone at home, and would like it to be with the others, I would contact the S.W.D Council if I were you... there were 40 headstones in all, and some are broken, so just hope that they add all the bits as well... its history...
A new resource currently in production will list all burials in cemeteries
in NZ that it is possible to identify. These records will be available on a
Cd and will be searchable.
You will not need the internet to use same.
The North Island is nearly complete but is not ready for research yet.
However this will be a wonderful finding aid for all genealogists. The
fields are Year, Surname, Given names, age, cemetery, and source of data...
Not a full transcription but enough to lead you to where to actually
Just a note to tell of you of a goodie to come. Maybe early next year...

Subject: [NZ] Wanganui and Hawera
am wanting to find out in Wanganui and or Hawera if the following people are
buried there... I have tried to see if the cemeteries are on line... could
not find them..
Georgina and Robert John Malcolm.
They were from Argyle Scotland, their son born in 1875 in Scotland.. and was
in NZ 39 years in 1916. So they must have arrived in NZ when he was about 2
years of age..
Any assistance, will be greatly appreciated thank you.

I wonder if anyone has knowledge of whether the details on these cards re Births, deaths and Marriages contain all the information
available.? Would a copy of a certificate or micrographic copy show any more than the cards.?

We have been over 3 times and stayed in B&B throughout UK and Ireland. Standard cost $150 NZ per night for 2 adults (sorry we didn't have a 7 year old in tow!) landlords in all cases were fantastic. Breakfasts so huge you didn't need any lunch so were able to dine in pubs or restaurants at a reasonable cost for dinner.. You can look at www.tuckedup.com or just search through Google for the towns you want to stay in. The first time we went (before I had a computer) I just got the phone numbers from a brochure from the travel agents, and rang them all - cost about NZ$20 for the total calls and in every case I said where we were coming from and about what time we would be there and they were without exception waiting for us and welcomed us with open arms. All through England, Scotland and Ireland. Last 2 times I have booked them online and never a problem. Just make sure they know you are from NZ. For some unkown reason they like us over there!!?
