Hi Maureen,

"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, 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 -

PapersPast -

New Zealand Yesteryears -

Our Stuff -

Also try:

Alexander Turnbull Library -

New Zealand National Maritime Museum -

Hope this helps. :-)

Kind Regards,
Wendy Howard
