New Zealand / Re: Ship "Maori" to Auckland 1864 Passenger Register
« on: Wednesday 10 April 24 22:46 BST (UK)  »
Hi John,

The voyage you mention departed from the Cape of Good Hope on 7 November 1864, according to the report published in the New Zealander on  24 December 1864, Page 4. This includes the passenger list.

I've searched Archway for 'micro5019' and also tried other search terms, all without success so far, but I'm certain they will still hold it.

But to answer your question, many passenger lists do not appear online.

Regards,

Spades

Hi Gdfoote, and welcome to RootsChat.

Reading the topic, it sounds like no one has yet discovered what happened to her.

You and Deelin might want to exchange email addresses and then discuss the family off-line. For personal privacy reasons we don't post email addresses on the forum, instead we do so via the private Personal Message ('PM') facility.

The PM facility is activated after new members make three posts, so please feel free to reply twice to this topic (just an emoji in the text field is fine). Then Deelin can send you a PM and you can reply.

If you have any questions at any time about RootsChat works, just ask on this topic or send me a PM and I'll help.

Regards,

Morning all,

I have sent an advisory PM to the original poster, HBelle, in the hope that they are still around. They were last logged on in 2017, so don't get your hopes up  :-\

Hi BAC3,

In an earlier post I mentioned Hokitika Museum. Can I suggest that you email them in case they are open and can assist you.
https://www.hokitikamuseum.nz/contact-the-museum/

I visited them some years ago. They were very helpful.

Just as a comparison against the passenger Walter PENKETH who travelled from VIC AUS to Otago per Genii in 1861, I've found a 'maybe' in a W. PINKADE aged 29 from travelled the same route in 1863 per Aldinga.

Hi Sparrett,

That certainly looks a brother.

A J. PENKETH arrived at Port Chalmers from Melbourne per the City of Hobart in 1864. Single.

I can't find a NZ marriage for him, though.

He appears in the Otago Nominal Index from 1867-1886 inclusive living at Hamilton's, Mt Ida.

I wonder if NZBDM have mis-transcribed his name, perhaps? And wildcard searching isn't available on the website.

I was going suggest that you try the Westland branch of NZSG, the History House Museum at Greytown and the Hokitika Museum, but it appears that the first two are defunct while the latter is temporally temporarily (sheesh ::)) closed.
