New Zealand / Re: Query re digitised wills on Archway
« on: Yesterday at 22:08 »
Hi Janette

Yes, I have actually downloaded straight from Archway. I have been having fun checking out a few other relatives and found a few more. The dates are random and so far appear to be Auckland ones.

New Zealand / Query re digitised wills on Archway
« on: Yesterday at 20:41 »
Hi
I notice some wills are available to download directly on the Archway website. I have downloaded my grandfather's will from 1980 yet I have others back in the late 1960s that aren't even available on the Family Search website. Can anyone tell me the reasoning behind what appears to be random digitising.
Regards

New Zealand / Re: Searching New Zealand BDM's In Person

Hi Dorrie
I live in the UK and have also found lots of records in NZ. Everyone is so helpful. I don't know if you have used the NZ archives website  https://www.archway.archives.govt.nz/   but putting in your ladies names comes up with a couple of entries. I have had a quick look as both your Mary Troup appear here with probate files. Both wills are digitised on FamilySearch. Maybe some information in these will help decide which one is yours.
It is possible your other lady Stella Rita May Noonan may have remarried as when you enter her husband's  name in the search on the archives it comes up with divorce files in 1960/1961.
Hope this helps your search a bit. Just realised Alan mentioned Archway as well.
Regards KK

Sorry I realise what you mean now. Yes that is what I usually do but for more recent certificates you can't buy the image and have to go down the route of buying the certificates. Having someone go and transcribe a few certificates saves a lot of money.

Thanks for your reply. I have purchased digital images on Scotland's People many times but haven't found access to any transcriptions. Perhaps I am looking in the wrong place. I will have to take a closer look at the website as I thought purchasing a certificate was the only way around the more recent deaths etc. Maybe you can point me in the right direction if you have time.
Many thanks

Sorry, I should have been a little clearer. I believe the transcriptions are from the statutory registers of birth, deaths and marriages which I believe are held in New Register House in Edinburgh. I have used this service in the past for my own family history.

Hi everyone

Hope someone can assist with this query. I am looking for someone to transcribe recent birth, marriage and death certificates and email at a reasonable cost. The service I have used in the past is no longer available. Has anyone used this type of service and can recommend someone?

Many thanks

Hi Max

Thanks for this. Great source. I don't think my brain is working too well this morning. Just looking through the mass of papers I received I have got a page on his war service increment. Didn't connect the abbreviations to this. Sorry about that but good to have the link for the source.
Many thanks
KK
