of New Zealand History
Mainly (but not only) Wellington & Mid to Lower North Island.
these pages are many thousands of names, but, I have no knowledge
of genealogical procedures.
I am not a genealogist so asking me about them is a waste of time.
|I DO NOT DO RESEARCH SO PLEASE DONT ASK !|
However, if you are looking for bones then wander round, you might be surprised at who you will find, & where.....
|Accuracy is strived for but not guaranteed.|
