- Charles Harrison's Profile
- Family Tree & Genealogy Tools
I discovered wikitree just two years ago and now spend all of my spare time researching and confirming details of my ancestors and those of my wife (Sue). As I have a very large family I have tried to give future generations a start if they discover genealogy; I have done this by (where possible) adding a couple of generations of in-laws (and out-laws).
During my research I have made contact with many relatives that we in New Zealand had lost touch with or did not know existed
Five of my siblings were also born in The U.K, one (Phillip) John Phillip Harrison died from complications of Rickets before we migrated to Australia in 1961.
After almost 5 months in a migrant camp at Rooty Hill in Sydney's Western Suburbs; my parents decided to move to New Zealand. Rooty Hill Migrant Camp was formerly Wallgrove Military Base; we lived in Nissen Huts; children separated from parents and men from women. I am certain that the complaints about life at the camp was mainly responsible for the term 'whingeing poms'. It was a bit like Butlins Holiday Camp circa 1946 (but without the laughs).
We arrived in Auckland in April of 1961 where three more of my siblings were born.
For the first few years we rented a house at 52 Bright Street in Eden Terrace in Central Auckland - I (and my brothers and sisters) attended Newton Central Primary School.
During our early years in New Zealand we only got to know one other branch of our family - Vince Hart; his wife Hella Feld and their four children when they arrived in New Zealand from the USA. Vince was my dad's cousin.
Towards the end of 1966 we moved to our own home at 2 Rewarewa Road Te Atatu North (now known as Te Atatu Peninsular. I attended Rutherford High School (now Rutherford College).
In the late 1970's we had a visit from our paternal grandmother Charlotte Hart.
In the late 1980's we got to meet uncles and aunts from my mother's side when they visited New Zealand.
In 1985 our son Nick Harrison was born.
