Hi Red3,

It might pay to change the title location to Wellington.   Auckland don't hold the Napier files.


Cheers

Hello...

You may want to read the following NZ Archives Research Guide, especially the bit that says "the place where divorce proceedings occurred is not always easy to determine"

http://archives.govt.nz/research/guides/personal-identity#divorce

Any info you can give concerning locations pre and post divorce might be helpful but it still looks like the looker-upper is going to have to slog through a Divorce Register or two. Hopefully the entries are in alphabetical order.

Regards
Beg

 ??? mmmm tricky
I know they lived in Napier and their last child was born in 1913.
Hyde moved back to Auckland at somestage.
George remarried 1931 and stayed in Napier. (have his marriage details)

So where the divorce was filed I do not know.  Can see that tracking this down is not so simple!! :P

Hi again...

You may as well make the obvious first step and modify your original post to include the following link. You might get lucky and find that all of the proceedings occured in Napier.

Napier Supreme/High Court
Divorce Registers 1869-1981

Hi Red3

I'm guessing that you don't have a copy of the 1905 marriage record (certificate) ?

The date of the Decree Absolute will be endorsed on that document.  [It's usually in the form of a (rubber) stamp, with the date added. ]
