That same person invited me to a closed  descendant discussion group, but made sure everyone knew that I was not a direct descendant, but as I knew a lot of stuff growing up, they decided to let me join ... their ggrandmother and my grandmother were sisters! ::), plus the cousins I grew up with were in the group. :)

When I had my tree on GR many moons ago, I once had someone ask me, "If I would give them all the information I had, because they couldn't be bothered to do the legwork".

It makes you wonder about the people who ignore you, when you politely ask for proof etc, what they are like away from the computer ;D  Sorry, not a dig at you Julie or any others :D

So naturalisations were published in the Gazette?

Looks like it, not sure when they started doing it.

Looks it Twiggy  :).... NZ Gazettes for 1869 state that it was the 16 April 1869, in Wellington.  Occupation was a storekeeper.

I have in the past contacted some people offering proof for corrections, sometimes to be ignored.


Four years ago, I asked  a tree owner, if the person they were seeking, was the right person they were looking for, as they had attached my ancestors 1851 census.... and asked where did the four middle names come from they had listed, for their person of interest, as they didn't match the traditional naming pattern of my family ... not a dickey bird was heard.   I then looked at the other trees for the person in question, and they all had a different birth year and different part of Glasgow.  So I can only assume they thought, yes, that is my person, I will grab it, regardless that it wasn't the area they wanted etc ;D

Roll on four years, we have since found the birth certificate of my person from the 1851 census, and wouldn't you know it, she only has one name :D  Made contact with a new rellie, and agrees with me, that the tree owner is just a name gatherer playing chinese whispers! ;D

Hi Janette, :D

Not on the locator, but found him on Ancestry ....cemetery is supposed to be Anderson's Bay.

Was a Methodist, 10 years in Province, and a labourer, born England and Resident of Mornington.

If you want to email the cemetery the Ref No: is 2134 .. BLK 45 Plot 5 Class 2.   I can't see him on the website though. I guess these details were taken from the Sexton's records.


Cheers
