Oct 2019 NZ Project Check In completed. I will follow up with an interim Member Interest Form for new members.


I have created a lot of New Zealand profiles for people who are not directly my family. If they are YOUR family, please don’t hesitate to contact me. I’ll add further information, or if you are a WikiTree member, make you the profile manager.

If you need help with finding free, online, New Zealand sources for ancestors, please ask and I’ll try to help.

I have recently retired from full-time secondary school English teaching in New Zealand and would like to get the myriad of genealogical information I have in some sort of sensible order. For me, genealogy is more than a list of people and dates; it's a study of the stories of those who created us. Many other websites have errors in my family information and I would like WikiTree to be the definitive version, with well-researched and sourced stories.

My major interest is early New Zealand history (1842-1920), especially the early European settlers of what became the Nelson Province. I'm also fascinated by what I can find out about women's history. Women are often unrecognised heroes, and finding and sharing their stories is a privilege.

DNA Connections
It may be possible to confirm family relationships with Fiona by comparing test results with other carriers of her ancestors' mitochondrial DNA. However, there are no known mtDNA test-takers in her direct maternal line. It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share DNA with Fiona:

Hi Fiona, thanks for your pointers about the migrants on the Skiol 1844. I can identify in Wikitree descendants of 2 families from the St Pauli and 4 families from the Skiol in South Australia.

Hi Fiona, thanks for your understanding and support re. the "Source Sitch" on G2G. I have a really hard time understanding why it's so hard to make those changes. Did you see any leaders contributions to the conversation? I don't know who they all are, and that just points to another issue; we're spread out all over the place and finding what one needs is harder and harder. We'll do what we can do. Thanks again!

Hi Fiona, How rude! I was unwittingly removed from the New Zealand page. For whatever reason, I did not receive notification of your message saying I would be removed If I didn't fill in a short survey?! Being that I didnt receive the first message, what a shock was it to then receive a message from Deb booting me out. I'm a stay at home mum with time to occasionally research and update profiles. You will see that I was particularly active in Aug/Sept. I'm also a 6th generation New Zealander, so my family and extended family make up a good portion of those you seek to improve. In fact I have personally added a significant amount of information and profiles onto wiki tree from scratch, which i feel is a valued contribution. I'd appreciate if you added me back on thanks!!

Kia ora Fiona,

I am a very busy Historian/Negotiator of Treaty Settlements. My most recent contributions have been profiles of Settlers that I encounter in my actual work. I have a couple of big deadlines ahead of me, but by next month and over the Summer holidays I'll have some time to contribute more. Noho ora mai, Pare.

Hi Fiona, filled in the form finally :-) It will be a few weeks before I can do very much though.

Hi Still interested, but currently working on my NZ/Cornish tree, I need to learn about puting the appropriate flags on my NZ profiles.

Hi Fiona,

Please remove me for now. I am spending my time between Auckland and Samoa for work and one of those places has. def. less broadband access than the other... which means I am quite busy when I am back home. Cheers Hans
