Not genealogy related, but I came across this gem of a headline: https://paperspast.natlib.govt.nz/newspapers/CHP19610117.2.151


Brilliant!! How we have moved on. [And up!]

I think the Land Deeds will be held by Archives. Years ago I searched for those in Otago around the same era and it is just a matter of knowing how to search. Which I have now forgotten how to do.  ::)

You can browse the registers on line and then order any documents if required.

I suggest you e-mail Archives and I'm sure when out of lock down someone will guide you through the process.  :)

Thank you so very much for that Minniehaha - I did find thought that the only way to locate the file was by using the Record No. mentioned on the Archives NZ entry, which was COR1934/890.  So had to search through until I found 890.  Hope that makes sense.  Thanks again :)

I'm pleased it worked out for you..... :)

Coroners inquests up to 1938 are available on Familysearch.

Kentishkiwi, a fellow Rootschatter put this post up earlier this year:

"Found through the catalogue. The link is in the resources page Feb 2018
Here is the link.
https://www.familysearch.org/search/catalog/544929?availability=Family%20History%20Library
Regards
KK"

In a personal message she gave me further details as to how to go about the process:


"It is a bit of a process but it is pretty straight forward. First of all you need the detail you would have got from the archives. If you click on the link as above it will take you to the reports which are keep in order of year. You need to scroll to 1934 and then a series of numbers after it. You need the series that includes 16231. Unfortunately there is no magic way to find the file you just have to estimate in the page numbers where it maybe. I don't scroll through as it is too slow.

When you put in a page number you hit your enter key on your keyboard not the arrow next to the box with page numbers."

I have tried to adapt her instructions to me to suit your request.

Possibly a cremation? Not all cemetery websites show these.

Can you provide the area where the burial may have taken place?

Hi Jearles, and welcome  :)

Minniehaha, both individuals died in the 1980's, see post above.

Sorry Spades, I didn't go back and read the earlier posts. I was relying on the present tense having been used.    :)

Hello & welcome to Rootschat.... :)

If your grandparents are still alive you will need to remove their names as it is against Rootschat policy to post the names of the living. You can however contact those who have posted above by using the personal message system.

In order to activate this you will need to post two more messages. Just a smiley  :)  in each will do the trick. Others can then contact you too, using the personal messaging system.
