From a West Coast newspaper.....


Another spelling?

There are a few items with this spelling.

Will bear that in mind.  Family Search employs a wide variation of soundex searches (even Guggert) but regardless hasn't thrown light on this man's entry into NZ waters.  The correct spelling remains GUCKERT.

There are still untranscribed shipping documents, on Family Search. Around the time of the gold rush in Otago, too, there are ship arrivals with no passenger records. My wife's great grandfather arrived in 1864, in Otago, and we only found the ship name from later newspaper stories about him. There doesn't appear to be a passenger record for him.

Have you checked Jakob's 1883 naturalisation papers, at Wellington Archives? If they still have his application, there may be more information about his arrival.

I went delving into the envelope sent me from a relative and it does have a few pages from the Naturalisation file.  I am unsure if it is complete or not.  It suggests he was resident for 25 years in 1883.
