KiwiRose, if you hadn't asked for a lookup, you would still be one step behind, and none the wiser of the surname .. no doubt this has made your day :D

New Zealand / Re: GENEALOGY files:what to do with them?
« on: Wednesday 09 October 19 06:59 BST (UK)  »
Hi Minnie,

Maybe the bank, in a safety deposit box, but it is a good question.  I am sure over the years, I have seen the same sort of question on the boards and there have been discussions/suggestions with what to do with hard copies of files.

I haven't actually thought about my hard copies, but I might donate them to NZSG or something to that nature.

Cheers

The only other place that "Scotland" would be recorded is the Death Certificate.

Offaly (Kings) / Re: Johanna McGrath Place of Birth Scotland
« on: Wednesday 09 October 19 04:05 BST (UK)  »

I was thinking Jamjar this could possibly be Johanna's daughter also named Johanna Bruce but born in 1869 who married John McDonald?

According to an online tree (one of many), she was, and did marry John McDonald, and she was a twin.   The trees also report that Johanna senior was born 1838 in Offaly, Ireland.  One has parents as John McGrath, another with the middle name Kieran, and with question marks for mother Mary O'Sullivan.

We all take online trees with a grain of salt, they are like a sieve, some full of holes, and you will need to follow up with documentation etc.

In the link Reply# 6 that Jamjar gave you, one of the children was named Kyran, another form of Kieran?

New Zealand / Re: violet white
« on: Tuesday 08 October 19 06:23 BST (UK)  »

now in 1891 to1896 violet white was at newtown school wellington new zealand .but i can not fine who she was living with like mother and father.

Just to let Rootschatters know, that the above information was most likely from School Inspector Returns - year of examinations were sat.  They don't list the parents names as School Records do. I am not sure if the records held at Wellington Archives will hold more information.

Aren't you lucky with your finds! :D  My line is squeaky clean, no dirty laundry flapping about, hold on, there was someone murdered, but that was about 13 years ago!  so not a closet find ;D

Keep those fingers busy and hope you find more.

Hope you are back to yourself now PP :)

Did you follow up on the link given in Reply #6 of the above completed thread?

It seems that we are going over old ground and giving you the same information.  As wivenhoe has said, it pays to put up links to your threads connected to the family and we then know what you have, then we can find out of you need.
