Hi John,

Have you tried the Advanced Search option? The link appears once the basic search field loads up.

Click on that and enter the name.

Advanced Search opens with one search condition in the left-hand box. Select 'name' from the drop down list in this box, and enter. to add search parameters click on 'Add Condition' and from the new drop down list on the left select 'start year' and put the year in the right-hand box.

Click 'Add Condition' again and this time select 'end year'.

Let me know if this helps.

Hi JanniJanni, and welcome to RootsChat :)

To explain my edit of your first post, forum policy is to maintain personal privacy of living or possibly living persons.

The best way to get around this is to use the Personal Message ('PM') facility to exchange sensitive information (names of living persons, email addresses, etc.).

If you reply twice more to this topic, just a smiley icon in each will be fine, your PM facility will be activated. For more information about PM's see:

If you have any questions about using the forum don't hesitate to ask them on this topic. Either myself or others will help you along. 8)



New Zealand / Re: Joseph Haglehurst - where buried?

Nothing on Archives New Zealand's search page ('haylehurst', 'hagelhurst' or 'hazelhurst').

I was hoping to find a coroner's report or letter from some authority discussing his death. There are some letters dating to 1863 re the HUNTRESS and held at Archives New Zealand's Christchurch office but the descriptions aren't detailed enough.

Perhaps ignore my suggestion above. The Great Grandma's Wicker Basket website makes it clear that those options were a dead end for the webpage's author.

Hi Ash,

Is this your comment at the bottom of the webpage regarding his possible burial at Camp Bay?

Have you approached Christchurch (or Lyttelton) City Council to see if they hold any off-line records?

Hi TuTuTulip,

Earlier records could have been more rigorous. Iíve seen attestations from
Police or employers before.

Can you provide a name and year of Naturalisation please?

Hi Sandynz,

The OP hasn't been on the forum since 2020. I hope you get a reply.
