Thank you for this. I was about to check it today. I don't know what to do to indicate this query is completed. I will leave it up to you.

Many Thanks once again.

Hi Lu
I didn't realise the process of finding them was so difficult. I certainly wouldn't want anyone to spend a lot of time looking. Thanks for telling me about the process. I am quite happy to let this request go.
If at any stage I can get hold of further information I can always revisit this query.

Regards
KK

Hi Lu

For these marriages I hope to find where they planned to marry and how long they resided at that location.

Hi

Thanks for the information. I don't need the children's names as I have them
Am hoping there is something in the Intentions to Marry but will wait and see.

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
KK

Hi Alan

An even bigger thank you. I saw the records were restricted but hadn't realised the restriction would apply to someone who started school in 1920. I even looked at the notice under the restrictions and it said as follows:-

Access Details: Registers of admission, progress, and withdrawal are restricted for 60 years from date of record closure.

What does that notice mean???? I had presumed it would be okay. THank you so much for pleading my case. I will definitely fire off an email to the Auckland Archives.

I am pretty sure here in the UK if they start school before the 100 year cut off you can still see their record.
It is a learning curve.
Once again many thanks .
Kind Regards
KK

Hi Alan
Photos all received. One issue that was highlighted for me is that the person who I was looking, Annie Elizabeth Stevenson didn't appear to be there but she was. Her family called her Nancy and this was the name used in the admissions records. I had expected her 'proper name'. If I was to do this kind of request again I would include all known names.

Alan, you did an amazing job by including all the Stevensons/Stephensons in a time period so I had the bonus of picking up Nancy and another family member. You have made my day!!!

Regards
KK
