"how or can I find the ship's log or any information about the "Lapwing"
and her crew."
Peter Nash, Executive Officer of the New Zealand Society of Genealogists
(NZSG, http://www.genealogy.org.nz/) was the guest speaker at the
Wellsford Branch last week, where I am a member, and his talk centered
around emigration to NZ. *Some* of the resources he recommended to us
"Ships' Logs, Journals, Pictures and Passenger Ship Links" -
"Log of Logs" by Ian Nicholson - make sure you look at all three volumes
of this book.
NZSG Shipping Database -
