Hi Michelle

(Thought it must have been accidental    :D )

So ... his parents names are not on death cert ?   (Is that correct) ?

(And  ...  he married  Jean DUNN - 1916 (Folio # 4569) - do you have the marriage cert ?)

 ....   Archives New Zealand have 3 records for Daniel Craig Miller ANDREWS :

*    Military file - held at Wellington .  (Have checked cenotaph database (at Auckland) but there is no listing for Daniel which might have shown his next-of-kin).

*    Archives NZ (Dunedin) have files for insolvency, and  bankruptcy (1959, where he is listed as a "war pensioner).

 ....   the passenger list index at

http://www.findmypast.com/passengerListPersonSearchStart.action?redef=0

shows a "Daniel ANDREWS" - Liverpool to Wellington, NZ - 1909    ???

Can't see anything on this index which suggests a family group "ANDREWS", arriving circa 1898 ?

Looking on indexes there seems alot of MILLER ANDREWS as eith er Miller a first or middlename..do you have any idea of siblings names, or do you want some of these posted to see if they could be possibilities.

  ... just spotted also, Archives NZ (Dunedin), a bankruptcy file for a "Donald Craig Miller ANDREWS - Dunedin - merchant - 1945".

Can't find burial or any further info for a "Donald" - (possible the Donald shown (Archives), is in fact Daniel ).    ???

Hi everyone helping, I have checked that shipping list mentioned and I think it said a four year old Daniel in 1909.
 I actually found the military and bankrupts records the other day and are writing to get copies  A printout over the net would do but the NZ govt does not have that available as yet.

The Death certificate says he was 60 years in NZ, and died at the age of 70, his parents were John Andrews and Martha Andrews(Galbraith), it said he came from Johnson Scotland?, maybe they meant Johnstone, either way its a mystery. I don't have his marriage cert yet.

His male children are Daniel David Miller(Galbraith) Andrews,  I have seen Galbraith mentioned only once in connection with this name and it was in family records, unfortunately they were compiled a while ago and I have a copy of a copy  and have no Idea where it originated from expect it came from the Dunns.Samuel Galbraith Miller Andrews.
