Hi Helen, great to hear from you.  I am still no further ahead re information on George.  My partner is the one descended from him via John Dixon Robertson.  We are off to a family reunion of sorts of Robertsonís and I will ask around for further info then. I find it very confusing the marriage and death certificates listed two different birth locations.

Hi Zylar22,

How about I move this topic back to the main board to see if anyone can offer advice to help you both?

Has it been established whether Elizabeth Logan Robertson IS his sister?  (By someone buying the birth cert)

If she is, her father was George Martin Robertson of Otahuhu

He died 1883 age 30. And his wife remarried Frank Swain in 1888

Added, sadly it looks as though George Martin Robertson married Bessie Watson in 1878

Not sure if this has been covered but I suggest you obtain a printout for the birth registration of at least one of the children born to George & Helen. Birthplace of the parents is one of the questions asked.

You have a marriage document for George ROBERTSON, 1901.

All the information on this document is useful. Can you please list all the information.
