Trying to locate Mimie Vigers (Goldsmith) parents (Goldsmith-1193)

+2 votes

Hi all,

I've run in to a brick wall again as I attempt to locate the parents of Mimie Vigers, born Goldsmith. Mimie (otherwise known as Minnie) was born between 1968 and 1969, according to her headstone. She married Alfred Kenneth Vigers - son of Charles and Anne Vigers in New Zealand in 1894. She passed away on 10 August, 1926. She is buried at the Ormondville Cemetery, NZ. Here is the link to her headstone:

I am unsure as to if Minnie was born in NZ as I have been unable to find a record for any Goldsmith births between 1868 and 1869. Please help :) 

Thank you!

Thank you Marion. You are a gem. I saw part of this record earlier, although I suspect that she may potentially be a different person to whom I am looking for. I'll keep searching and looking at alternative names for her. It's so far a mystery.

Thank you so much.

There is a Marcella Mima Goldsmith in the Auckland electoral roll 1896 - mother? or totally no relevance. [Source: Ancestry]

You may need to buy her marriage printout as it should show the names of her parents. If you are really lucky, you might find a NZ Goldsmith will on FamilySearch that shows her or her husband as an executor or beneficiary. (No marriage announcement on Paperspast.)
