Biography

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 and shared generations of facts and tales. She spent many long hours giving dates and facts about each family branch. 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 sent you to someone who did know. Her information has been verified as correct.

Other sources for Information were Cemeteries, Churches and Court houses. This work was done before computer technology and family history groups had formed.

All my family trees are well understood and researched, however mistakes do happen.

===

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

There are NO spare copies of this book - please join WIKITREE and help the family tree to grow. In 2002, Mary DUES & William KILGOUR had over TEN thousand descendants. Be proud of OUR family tree! (please copy it)

Understandably you feel uneasy seeing your ancestor shared by someone you don't know. Your ancestor has left lots (thousands) of descendants, who all think they are their special grandparent. 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 many 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


2018 - Now retired; in my spare time filing over fifty years of notes onto Wikitree. I am about half way through and think I'll compete the skeleton over the next five years! Then... I'll start to add tales to the bones, photos, etc.

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
