Wayne, thanks for that response. Actually, I already had the 'Gordon' branch tied down, what I can't find is any descendants of 'Joe' (Francis Joseph). If there is anyone left in New Zealand, it will probably be through that branch. Thanks anyway, John Saunders
The problem you run into with an online search using the bdm is the privacy cutoff.  (I have no idea if ancestry or family search (or some other site) can get around that.)

I found a Francis Joseph Saunders born 1904 (get birth before looking for marriage), but the parents are wrong: Annie Merry Maria and Francis Henry.

The cutoff for marriages is early 1839.  The cutoff for births is early 1919.

Your best bet is probably looking for birth notices in the newspapers, but I don't know how to do that for New Zealand.
