I have an IDEA for the New Zealand Project

+5 votes

My Idea consist of making a new sub-category for the New Zealand Project named "descendants of Famous New Zealand Figures"

For example I am planning to create a category:Descendants of Rev. Thomas Kendall 

Rev. Thomas W Kendall made what New Zealand is now, he learnt Māori, taught natives how to read and write in english, and he was the first "Justice of Peace" (JP) in New Zealand.


Thomas family is well researched with descendants spread all over the world, but most of them stayed in New Zealand and Australia.

  • This Idea when created will connect distant cousins in New Zealand​

Thomas W Kendall was my 5x Great grandfather

[[Category: New Zealand Pioneers]]

We've got a category "New Zealand Pioneers" which collects these founding fathers.

Keep a look out for connections as most of the missionary families have already found their way into Wikitree. There is a great deal of intermarriage among this first generation of settlers.

I Looked on the New Zealand Pioneer Website and there are a lot of mistakes. read the link below and find them. (1920 should be 1820 ect)


Well - this Wikitree, typos aren't serious mistakes, you have the opportunity to correct mistakes, always leaving a source for your change of course.
Thanks Valerie, for mentioning that category.
My forefathers (The Valpys) fit that!!
