No problem, Linda, it caught us all.

Iíve made the same mistake several times in my own research.

Yes, see pages 21-22 of the thesis. The Zealandia's medical journal does not appear in the theses' bibliography.

And there is an error in the thesis: the Lady Jocelyn arrived at Lyttelton, not Bluff as stated in the list of vessels on page 47. Contemporary newspapers reports reveal that her Brogden-employed passengers were transferred down to Bluff, one of several movements to take groups to where the work was.

Hi Linda,

Just recording here that the file you requested does not relate to the person you are seeking. It only includes the two words 'eric' and 'gilmour'.

I have searched Archway as well and cannot find any record that match your child who died in 1946.

Also see identical request https://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=851178.0

Regards,

Spades

Thanks both of you, I hadn't noticed that. ;D ;D Just a coincidence of names.

And thanks also for solving my confusion about where I posted! ::) ::) ::)

I did, but my reply has disappeared. Oh well, must be random fluctuations in the quantum foam...

The file link for future reference:

I think the source is that medical journal. It is implied within the text of the thesis.

Hi Kiwiozbrit,

Very pleased that it helped :-)

The thesis is a veritable goldmine of information.

Evening Mckha, :)

I can't find any record either. Have you considered a death in Australia, or UK, perhaps?
