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.
