Crimean war records
« on: Friday 31 March 17 08:34 BST (UK) »
Have seen a comment in a book from the 1940's suggesting a relative was in the crimean war.  He arrived in NZ in 1851, so it is possible.  Searching on google hasnt given me any resources similar to archives nz to verify records.  does anyone know where service records from that time period may be found?

The National Archives would be the place to start I suppose

Hello.

I don't make a habit of joining forums all over the place, and don't subscribe to what I consider social media sites, but last year my research into the Crimean War took me to this forum, which I found very helpful.

http://www.victorianwars.com/

It has some very knowledgeable participants but appears to have few volunteer Moderators, so thread replies can be slow at times, compared to RootsChat.

It even has a Maori Wars section. A site search will probably give you a better appreciation of what is available.

Alan.

Hi Mmkiwi,

I assume he was the Frederick WHITE stabbed to death by the patient PRICE at the Asylum?

Do you have any other clues which might help, a possible regiment, old uniform or memorabilia, anecdotes?

I think you need the attention of the military experts on the Armed Forces board. I'll move your topic across.

Happy hunting.

No biographical information on Frederick, unfortunately.
