Hi again Michelle


I have checked that shipping list mentioned and I think it said a four year old Daniel in 1909.


Mmm ... alongside the Daniel who is listed, it says date of birth "unknown" ?

BUT   ... I wonder if this might be the family.     ???

If you search (surname ANDREWS) again at "findmypast", and enter "year - 1909 / place of departure - Liverpool / destination New Zealand - port of Wellington", it throws up this group ...

ANDREWS - Annie / Daniel / David / Janet / John / Martha / Mary / Samuel :

(You'd obviously need to view the full record to establish if they are all from same family) ?

Aah !    :)     This might answer a few questions ?

From Dunedin cemeteries database   ...

ANDREWS - Samuel G.M. - died 1960 (Born Scotland c. 1896 - arrived NZ c. 1909)     ???

(There is also a record for (another) Samuel Galbraith Miller ANDREWS shown).

ANDREWS - Samuel Galbraith M. - Retired baker - 1960 :

Also ... Archives NZ (Wellington) - military file for

ANDREWS - Samuel Galbraith - 1914-1918

and,  from cenotaph database - "Mrs Martha ANDREWS (Mother) 420 Cumberland Street, Dunedin" listed as next-of-kin for Samuel Galbraith ANDREWS :

Hi again,
 now that I have had a look at the Dunedin cemetary records and found a few names the ships list makes more sense.   :D
 I had  had a look at it before but dismissed it because they are under English and not Scottish passengers, and I was unfamilar with all the names. :) 
 Also had a look at Samuels  military records, but found no Daniel as yet.

Marthas burial record just gave me another question... Native of NA ? tell me it is something simple Michelle.  ???

That's great thank you, they will help a lot as I only had one name to start with. :)

Some of the other names on that shipping list were John, Mary, David Janet and Annie, if I may be so bold to add them to the mix. :-*
