New Zealand Completed Requests / Wellington Archives Look up Please
« on: Wednesday 21 April 21 18:02 BST (UK)  »
Hi
Can someone do two lookups in the Intention to Marry records please. Unfortunately I only know the year of marriage not a specific month so I don't know how easy that is. Are these recent records actually available???
1. Walter Frederick Selling and Ann Victoria Mckeown in 1932
2. George Albert Jowsey and Annie Elizabeth Stevenson 1947

Thank you in advance

Hi Everyone

This is my second effort at loading photos. Hopefully this time it will be okay. I am hoping someone can improve the image of these two ladies. One is my grandmother born 1883.

Look forward to hearing from anyone.

Will load second photo once I know this one is successful.
Many thanks

New Zealand Completed Requests / Auckland Archives Lookup - Devonport School APW
« on: Wednesday 24 March 21 17:54 GMT (UK)  »
Hi
Hoping someone may be able to assist with a lookup for Annie Elizabeth Stevenson who I believe attended this school. She was born in May 1915 so I guess she may have started school in May 1920.
Records for 1918-1923 https://www.archway.archives.govt.nz/ViewFullItem.do?code=1624822
I would also like to know what school she went onto so I guess the next records for 1923 -1930
https://www.archway.archives.govt.nz/ViewFullItem.do?code=1624823

There is an outside chance she moved to another school for her last couple of years but I don't know for sure. Any help would be great.

There is no rush for this lookup.

Hi Everyone

Hoping someone can help. I recently found out my great aunt , who served in WW1 lived here in the 1950s. I  would like to know a bit more about its history e.g. How long was it a home for returned service women. Any help would be great. I did see the images online in the national library and also had a quick look on google satelite to see it is still there.
Hopefully someone local can help.
Many thanks in advance.

Hi Everyone

As I am in the UK I don't know if your archives are open or not. If someone is going to be visiting Auckland archives anytime in the furture I would appreciate a lookup.
The records are the Staff Appointment Registers for Carrington Hospital 1908-1965
Apparently they contain quite a lot of information such as date of appointment, position,salary, DOB, signature and date of leaving. I checked and it appears there are no issues with access.
I am looking for details on three people
Frederick Howard Stevenson - appointed sometime 1909/1910
Elizabeth Cameron Stewart - appointed 1910/1911
Amy Grace Broadbent - Appointed 1935/1936

Here is the link https://www.archway.archives.govt.nz/ViewEntity.do?code=15444

I hope these records are relatively easy to access. If it is a problem please don't worry. If and when I get home next it will be on my list.

Many thanks in advance.
Always happy to help if any one has queries here in North West Kent, England

Hi

I am trying to find out more about mental health nurses training in the early 1900s in New Zealand. I have done a fair bit of searching on the internet with not much to show for it.
My grandfather emigrated to New Zealand and worked and trained as a nurse in a mental hospital. I have his certificate and he is No. 195 on the Register of Mental Nurses on the 31st March 1914. My grandmother also worked as a nurse but didn't complete her training. If anyone has any advice it would be great to hear from you. I specifically wanted to know the length of training and if there are registers available. I have got a lot of information from the NZ Gazette . Luckily my grandfather kept his registration certificate.

Isle of Man / Joseph Sowden Broadbent - School book
« on: Sunday 03 May 20 18:21 BST (UK)  »
Hi
I have been having a tidy up and came across my great grandfather's school book which he took out to New Zealand when he emigrated. I am interested in the name of the school.  My knowledge of the Isle of Man is not great so hope someone can point me in the right direction. I am reading it as
....onchan School. It has November 3/54. Not sure what these numbers mean. He was born in about 1837. Looking forward to hearing from anyone. i am just starting to look at his family and seems to be loads of them. Hope attachment works okay.
