Hi Rootschat, I am looking for information on a Daniel Craig Miller Andrews born 18 Feb 1873 Hamilton Lanarkshire Scotland. I have him in the 1881 census, but not after.

Is is possible that I could find conformation of Sarah Ann's birth.  Her parents were Robert and Sarah.

I cannot find either her parents marriage or her birth record.

New Zealand Completed Requests / Norman/Dominy immigration
« on: Wednesday 25 February 09 09:08 GMT (UK)  »
Hi, I have another sticky one here.

I would like to find the arrival date of Abel Ferris Dominy, but, he was known in New Zealand as Henry Ferris Norman, he could have traveled under either name.
No confirmation has been found of his birth or parents, his unsubstantiated details are, born 1832 Bradpole Dorset England. ???

It is said that he jumped ship in harbour, it is suggested he arrived around 1851 at the age of 19.  He was a well known grazier around Queenstown and has a park named after him (Domini Park).
