I am trying to trace a branch of my wife's family who left NZ to go to
Australia and then back to NZ. In this particular branch Daphne MOHN (nee
BIRTWISTLE) arrived in the Morrinsville area with her two sons some time
between 1914 and 1928 from Australia She married William John NEELS in
Her son Emil John married Zeta Isabel Mary BAN in 1946 while her son Robert
Carl married Doreen Emma Mary DAVIES in 1947 I have traced these families
in Hamilton and Morrinsville areas
This will give you the Fred who appeared to have died in 1963 aged 90, and
the third wife appears to have died in 1929 aged 53.
You may find some children in the Births link, and etc ...

Have you checked the https://www.bdmhistoricalrecords.dia.govt.nz/Home/
records online. If not, I found the following which will mean purchasing
the certificates, or perhaps going to a bigger library to research their
records (if that was possible for you in your location)
All these deaths are registered in NZ which discounts the theory that one
may have returned to Australia.

Wondering if anyone out there is a descendant of the DE MALMANCHE Family
Emeri DE MALMANCHE and Rose Victoire GERZEAU (or Jerzeau, I have come
across a number of spelling variations) came to N.Z on the Comte de

The story goes that Emeri took 2 of his daughters back to France to
continue their education and returned with them and Madeliene GERZEAU

possibly aboard the SS Caulaincourt?

Hi Murray and all
Just a thought but as many of the papers on this new database are also on the Gale 19th Century
Newspapers, and they are available for free for all Australian Citizens and many in the UK who may
have a subscription with their Library it pays to check there first
Also I notice quite a few notices that appear in the London Gazette , also free
Many stories are shared around so its also worth checking the Australian and New Zealand online
papers, both free

This may not be exactly what you want but it does give some information on individuals who died while serving with the RNZAF and their training.
I have a relative who was killed in 1944. He was in the RNZAF and trained in Canada. When I found his entry in the following book I was able to trace his postings around Canada and then later in England. Each place they were posted covered a different aspect of their training, eg flying, navigation, gunnery etc. Basic training was done in Canada and then
What do you need to know or maybe what I mean is what do you know so we
dont go over the same ground. And probably the answer to the list would be
best so we dont all do the same searches.
Do you have burial places etc or just what is missing in your research

Perhaps someone may know or have this lady Ethel Rita Brown in their tree.
I have been asked by a friend to try and find the above persons details.
Ethel Rita Brown was born about 1890.
She married a Leslie Stewart in 1912.
Census 1914 Leslie Stewart lived High Street Blenheim.
What year did she die and where???
Who were her parents???
I tried to find her birth on the NZBDM site but nothing came up for her.

A GEDCOM file is a plain text file, which can be opened and read in any
text reader, such as Notepad, Word, etc. Not that that's the easiest
way to read such a file, but it can be done to confirm the file contains
what you expect it to.
What program are you using to create the GEDCOM file? If it is one that

Can someone with some military knowledge help me please?.In 1864 Captain Hunter went to Adelaide SA to enrol men to come to NZ for the Land wars with the enticement of being granted land., initially it was meant to be single men, but ended up with quite a few ,being familes, which caused some ill feeling in Australia, they often having had paid 15 pounds for the man and family to settle in Aust.(Trove) Around 25th January 1864 Edward Beatty,33 years shoemaker, the newspaper 28th Jan 1864 naming him as Beall
Your Edward BEATTY/BEALLEY isn't mentioned in Discharged in NZ, nor is
the ship Brilliant.
It would seem therefore he wasn't in one of the British regiments, or at
least didn't take his discharge in NZ. (Could have joined one of the
militia groups perhaps?)
My eldest brother trained in Canada (Calgary) at that time and graduated
with the rank of Flying Officer. He was a WO/AG.
If you locate a source could you please post to the list as I would like
to follow up.
