Nene is a name for sure. It's a girl's name in Japan, and also a personal
name in NZ. Probably Maori.
Are you sure it's Nene, and not Rene. The latter could be an abbreviated
version of Irene. There is a burial for an Irene MacKENZIE, aged 29 in
Karori Cemetery, Wellington. The burial date is 12 Jul 1927. She died 10 Jul
1927. You didn't provide a birth year for Nene so it's difficult to help any
more than speculate.
There's an 1898 birth of an Irene Catherine McKENZIE that could match the
above death, and a 1929 marriage for an Irene Catherine McKENZIE. So a lot
of work involved to see if the Irene in Karori Cemetery is your girl or not.

Thank you so much for your valuable information. I have tried to enter the
names in the website http://www.dia.govt.nz/Births-Deaths-and-Marriages
but unfortunately the names didnt show up.
I am looking for Nene McKenzie who was born in USA possibility at Bedford,
USA and met Robert Wilson Lauchlan in New Zealand, possibilty at Wellington.
Nene is a mystery woman and I want to find out more about her on the behalf
of my good friend. I found out that Nene is possibile for other name which
is Jean? Is there any other name for Nene? They had a child out of wedlock
and Robert decided to keep his son. Robert's son is a living person and he
is very interested to know more about his mother. I am trying to help him
with further details.
I am aware that the memory of his mother was at the Wellington hospital when
he was four and she died probably at Wellington in about 1926. A thought of
the hospital records at Wellington hospital would be helpful. I have tried
with the birth marriage and death website that you suggested but nothing
Any information is greatly help to us.
