New Zealand Completed Requests / Mortons from Scots-Completed
« on: Friday 01 June 07 12:21 BST (UK)  »
I'm looking for burial and immigration info on Alexander Morton and his wife Lynette/Helen Edgar. Edgar died in 1930. Both died in Auckland. Ruth (their daughter) died 26 October 1984 in Auckland. I have no idea where they are buried. Ruth's 1st married name was Montgomery and 2nd married name was Sargeant (not sure if this is spelt correctly). 

They would have traveled from Scotland to NZ after 1925. I'm presuming to the port of Auckland as most of their activities revolved around this area, but thats not a definite. Their other children were Betty, Meg, Charlotte and Alexander although I'm not sure if they came to NZ. Betty's partner was named Bill, Meg's was Keith, Charlotte's was George (last names unknown) Alexanders partner is unknown.

I have no idea how many cemetery's are in the Auckland area and I wouldn't know where to begin with immigration.

Suggestions please.


New Zealand Completed Requests / Completed Waikumete Cemetery
« on: Wednesday 30 May 07 13:51 BST (UK)  »
I'm looking for confirmation on the burials of George Montgomery, Died approx 22 July, 1943, AKL and his wife Mary Montgomery/Bett, Died 1927, AKL. Both are apparently buried at Waikumete but on line resources are sketchy. I've tried NZ cemeteries and having a frustrating time trying to navigate Waikumete cemetery site.  Any suggestions to advance my inquiry who be appreciated.

Donegal / Montgomery, Milford, Donegal-Completed

I am new to this ancestry hunting and any expert advise is appreciated. I am looking for any information or advice obtaining, in regards to George Montgomery, born in 1873, Milford, Co Donegal.
His father, George also and mother Mary Mc Elhinney/Mc Helleney. No birth or death dates for the parents. George sr was a farmer. George jr was a masons labourer and crane driver.He married Mary Bett in Strathmigco, Scotland on June 4th 1897 and later they migrated to New Zealand, where I believe they entered in the port of Wellington. I make this assumption based on their child Ronald Glen Montgomery being born in Wellington on 22 October 1916 and that would be my granddad. Im slowly learning about the counties, barony's and provinces and my research is hindered by my lack of knowledge on how to obtain information regarding my relatives. If anyone has the time to help me out I would be so pleased because so far I keep hitting a brick wall. Anyway many thanx in advance.
