I was born 1955 in Gisborne, New Zealand. I grew up in Gisborne. As an adult I've lived in many regions of New Zealand, so know the geography of the country well.


I started collecting family history in the 1960's. Those early notes made very little sense - but now fifty years later some of the wording in exremely valuable.

During the 1960's two special trips were made from Gisborne to Maungatoroto, Northland, New Zealand to my grandmother Florence Smith (nee Fletcher). She knew everyone in the family and shared generations of facts and tales. She spent many long hours giving dates and facts about every family. Every detail was written down. No money or emotions were exchanged - that's a huge life lesson. If she didn't know something then she would send you to someone who did know. Her information has been verified as correct.

Other sources for Information were Cemeteries, Churches and Court houses.


All my family trees are well understood and researched. Mistakes do happen.

I am a family historian for the KILGOUR family who settled in Huia, West Auckland in 1842. I've published the Kilgour family history and now working to preserve over 200 years of this history, using WIKITREE.

In the year 2002, Mary DUES & William KILGOUR had over ten thousand descendants. Be proud of OUR family tree! (please copy it)

Please add yourself and help make this tree grow.

It is understandable that you feel uncomfortable seeing your ancestor shared by someone you don't know. Maybe it will help you understand that when you were born an excited person published your birth or wrote to a relative about this new arrival. One of those sources was given it to me. You're someone's treasure so therefore lots of people know about you. Whether you like it or not we share genes.

If you see a mistake... please let me know... some information may have been given with a mistake... proud grannies do that!


Notes for KILGOUR descendants... Our gt-gt-gt-grandmother Mary Kilgour (nee Dues) asked the family and descendants to leave flowers on her grave.

We cannot leave flowers for Mary, as her grave is now the soil on a farm and part of a housing development. You can sit in the Huia Domain, West Auckland, New Zealand, look out across the water, then turn round (180 degrees) and look at the man-made cave across the road - William and Mary are are buried on top of this knoll. When you sit anywhere on the Huia Domain, you're sitting on their original farm.

Many/most in the family get an "overwhelming feeling" as they sit there. It is a special place.

Have fun... Kathryn Mooney

Hi Kathryn,

Thanks for connecting up the profile for John Adsett. I was wondering if you received my email from a week or to ago. I'm not sure if the way I reply to wikitree emails works or not.

Hello Kathryn

I adopted the profile of Fanny (Holland-3518) Constance, (1852-1927). I am not related to her, as I know of. At this time, I can not give her profile the attention she deserves so I removed myself as manager of her profile. Please feel free to make any needed changes.

Thank you and Best Regards Holland-3338
