I have had trouble getting into this, the last couple of days.   Perhaps it is me, and not the site?

Hi Blue,

Yes, my grandfather, he suffered for 12 days, leaving three young children.  Many years later I was born the day after his anniversary.

I have no arrival date, or departure so far for Arthur.

cheers Fred

PS - Some hints to family trees are appearing now.

Hi Fred,

From the trees, and you have probably found out by now, but putting down for the others on this thread.  Arthur left England on the 6 March 1920 sailing on the Orvieto.

There is a marriage for an Arthur William Thomas Rudge to Maud Harper on 5 February 1920 in Eynsham, Oxfordshire.

I wondered the same Janette :D

Perhaps if Fred has a sub to Ancestry, perhaps he could contact the tree owner, and glean some information.

So what else do I know?  Well Hawkes Bay was part of the NZ address and I remember Napier.  My brother says Dunedin was mentioned and remembered talk about a family member being Post Master of Christchurch at some time, did they switch islands at some point? 

Monmouth.

They moved quite a bit, in 1928 Arthur was a Telephone Linesman.  They lived in Northland for about 10 years, Auckland for a little while, then Timaru in the South Island, then Wellington, I am guessing these moves could have been part of this job.

What an amazing story, a book to add to the list to be read.

Change  "No, she had 92   to    "No, she had 9"    ;D ;D

In all my excitement, I gave you a wrong figure  ;D ;D ;D  No, it wasn't from this Kiwi.

When I first started my journey on genealogy, a tree owner I contacted started to give me the bare bones, until they could trust me, then I got a little bit of the flesh on the understanding that I would have to do the rest of the leg work myself.  Reason being was that someone had posted this persons tree as their own ... the work on the tree was done in the days before it all became available on the net.  I have had someone contact me and insist I give them everything I had, as they didn't have subs to the genealogy sites, and wanted to save some dollars.
