OTTO; William, Andrew, ......... Rexford / ? Redford
« on: Tuesday 24 April 18 03:56 BST (UK) »
Hello.

On a recent visit to Archives NZ Auckland archive, I was searching through old bound copies of typed index and reference pages. Some entries had red ink, hand written notations, one of which caught my eye as the notation was different to other notations that I had seen. I was left wondering if the notation was in reference to the last given name, as it was spaced appart from the two proceeding names, or to the surname listed.

In case this could be signficant to some ones research the info was;

Typed:-      OTTO,  William Andrew      Rexford
Notation:-   Now Redford

If interested in investigating further, please contact me for details.

Thanks Minniehaha.

I did not have the time to investigate. But with that death detail, I was possibly reading too much into this Auckland Hospital index.
