The Lighter Side / Re: People you know who turn out to be distantly related to you.
« on: Tuesday 11 December 18 09:12 GMT (UK)  »
When growing up, I knew a family, whose mother's maiden name was the same as mine, we always said there was no connection, went to school with the children.  Roll on many years to about 1995, when a couple of names kept popping out of my tree at me,  always drawing me to it every time, so I had to do further digging, and hey bingo, 3rd cousin 1x removed.  :)

Mr KHP's Uncles wife, is related to another set of my cousins, on their other side of the family.

as there ought to be a death for that F Studer
who shows on PapersPast. (Not that I think he belongs to her)


The only F Studer I can see is for a Frank Studer who died on 12 July 1967, aged 92.  Occupation Sawmill Hand.

New Zealand / Re: Where was Okowitu near Albany north of Auckland?

No you probably aren't wrong ... and I have put the original source of the query up, without realising it was, but then I guess it helps others who come along sometime in the future to look at it.  ;D :D

Have a look at this, another one who has Okowitu for their place of residence.   Scroll down to Lucas Creek - 26.
