Good morning,

Would someone be able to do a look up (any old time) for me please?

Not sure what my relation, long deceased, was doing in this neck of the woods but found this in archives:


New Zealand Completed Requests / JAMIESON Laura- NZ footprint?
« on: Friday 18 December 20 07:13 GMT (UK)  »
Hi everyone,

I think Laurence Jamieson who died in 1956 was possibly related to my great-grandfather, also born in Walls, Shetland, so am trying to make the connection.

I would like information about his sister-in-law, Laura Jamieson, mentioned in his will.

New Zealand Completed Requests / Constance Beavis Dorothea TREACY.
« on: Wednesday 18 November 20 00:14 GMT (UK)  »
An elderly great uncle of mine went missing in 1944, perhaps having drowned in the Whanganui river which ran through his property. At the time, according to court documents, he had agreed to sell his farm @ Te Maire (about 15 miles out of Taumarunui) to one Constance Beavis Dorothea Treacy.

As my relative's body was never found, the settlement of the purchase if it went ahead, may not have taken place until 1946.

I am curious to know if and for how long Mrs. Beavis (and her husband?) may have farmed/lived @ Te Maire.


1933/1763   Constance Dorothea   Scanlon   Henry William   Treacy

Husband's death:
1973/36938   Treacy   Henry William   26 January 1893

1970/34425   Treacy   Constance Beavis   66Y

Anything on the Electoral Rolls?


New Zealand Completed Requests / Birmingham in Wellington, New Zealand?
« on: Saturday 24 October 20 04:52 BST (UK)  »
Maybe it is time I was put out to pasture but I'm sure I copied the details of a birth registration correctly.

In 1919 & 1922 [two entries for the same birth] the district on the microfiche I have recorded as 'Birmingham' in Wellington.

On trying to find it through Mrs. Google all I get is the obvious; Birmingham, UK. Nothing easily found in Papers Past either.

Did/does it exist or have I made an error?


New Zealand Completed Requests / Places of birth, death & burial
« on: Tuesday 06 October 20 00:53 BST (UK)  »
I am interested to know where these events were registered and also if possible, the place of burial please.

1858/3527   Hammond     NR   Susan   Charles
Date of birth: 8.9.1858

1848**/5368   Hammond   Susan   36Y

**Although BDM shows '1848', the actual date of death works out to be 9.9.1858


New Zealand Completed Requests / AN OLD REGISTER- a tantalizing extract.
« on: Sunday 02 August 20 09:54 BST (UK)  »
Some people may be unaware of the place-name of Waikouaiti, a small township north of Dunedin and south of Palmerston.

Found in Papers Past........

I'm guessing that the original register may now be held in the Waikouaiti Museum.


New Zealand / Military Defaulters List- 1919
« on: Monday 06 July 20 23:43 BST (UK)  »
Apologies Spades if you already have this in the resources section. I did look but couldn't see it.

"In May 1919 the government published a Military Defaulters List’ containing the names of men it considered had failed to perform their civic duties under the conscription system during the First World War. This included men who had directly refused military service (conscientious objectors), those who deserted from the New Zealand Expeditionary Force, and those who failed to present themselves for military service when called upon to do so. Conscientious objectors who had refused military service on religious grounds were exempt from inclusion in the list."

You can download this table as a spreadsheet containing more detailed information.
