Ridgway Carterton area NZ
« on: Tuesday 08 December 09 17:19 GMT (UK) »
Hi, I put this in the new peoples section, but I thought it stood more chance of a reply in here really!

 I am looking for any information about Patrick Ridgway born (*) in Auckland, his parents were Agnes Mary Ridgway (Carter) born in Picton around 1909 and his father was Lawrence Ridgway born in Carterton around 1892. Lawrence's parents were William Ridgway (1863-1940) and Mary (Trotter) (1867-?)

I believe Patrick is my father, he arrived on the Southern Cross Wellington in Southampton on 25 February 1957, and he went to Rhodesia from England on the Athlone Castle in January 1959. I would like to see if there is any trace of him and if he has any siblings?

Thank you for any help,

John

Hi John
We can't give info on people who are possibly still living
Have you tried places like oldfriends.co.nz
Where you can contact any Ridgway's and see if they are connected?
Bye

If you want to find siblings
then school records...Collingwood school seems to be a match worth trying (from NZSG index)

Look up on net for local library or NZSG group and ask for lookups..if no one on this group in area
As I say you just have to pm any dates because we can't look up or give info on people who could be alive.

Otherwise NZSG Schools officer direct, even if not an NZSG member
