I am trying to help a friend find a little bit about her grandmother and great grandparents. She knows very little as she hasn't been interested until lately.
Kathleen Lillian Bradley was born in Harrogate about august 1894-95 .her father was a butcher , possible name George, however he died when Kathleen was very young. her mother and brother carried on with the shop and She had an elder sister, possibly named jean.Kathleen was christened and confirmed in the catholic church in Harrogate Leeds and all the records were lost in a fire. Kathleen immigrated to new Zealand , probably prior to 1920 as she married here and her first child was born in 1921.
Could anybody help to find this Bradley family in Harrogate please.

According to my Grandparents marriage certificate William John Reader was born in Capetown in 1894 ,son of Charles Henry Reader and Lucy pettoni .William Reader married my grandmother in New Zealand in 1920 and after two children he deserted her and was never heard of again.From my researches I know enough about him, but if possible I would like to find out more about Charles Henry Reader and Lucy Pettoni. On the marriage certificate Charles was noted  a stockbroker in Capetown. Could anybody please suggest sites I can go to to find more about this Family. In the past research has put me in touch with other  south african Reader researches but none has been connected to my family. All help is really appreciated thank you.

« on: Wednesday 12 April 17 04:14 BST (UK)  »
I have found a burial for my great uncle William Parker who died in 1954 at Ellerslie .He was buried at Waikemete cemetery aged 77.
I can't find a burial for his wife named Sylvia though I have looked at databases for other Auckland cemeteries. I have no idea if she may have predeceased him or not. I am wondering if maybe Sylvia was not her first name which is why i cant find her.
Any help or suggestions please.

New Zealand Completed Requests / john paulin
« on: Thursday 25 August 16 01:13 BST (UK)  »
I am trying to find information about John Paulin who was living in new Zealand , possibly around Wellington or top of the South Island. He was a seaman, possibly a whaler and was known to be there from 1860 to 1870, as we have evidence of an Australian relative stopping with him during those years. John was born in London 1815-1816.I am wondering if possibly there ore early census or electoral rolls that I could look up. Can anybody advise where I might find a seaman who may have settled in these areas please.
Thanks for your help.
