You should stress that these records are restricted in their use and not
everyone had their photographs taken.
You may need to apply through the archivist at the Otago Hospital Board to
access information if it fall outside the restricted time period.

There are a lot of the records held at Dunedin archives. all those who
lived/dwelled at Seacliff usually had their photo taken, stored with their
records. amanda

Hi Julie

Seacliffe was the mental health hospital around the date you mention. It was
built by the sea at Karitane, sadly enjoyed a rather notorious history,
remembering that there were not the treatments available back then.
Try: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seacliff_Lunatic_Asylum.

Later on the better known 'Cherry Farm' on the main state highway between
Dunedin and Oamaru was built on a large piece of farmland.

I'm not aware of any near Invercargill or Gore as I suspect the above would
have been a regional base as such. You could try contacting NZ Society of
Genealogists Dunedin Branch or the Dunedin Library. Google for their contact
points.

I have STOKES in my family tree????!! Do you have any connection to the
Kaiapoi (near Christchurch), region?

Hope that helps get you started.
