Photo wanted Melba Eileen McAllister (nee Bowyer) b 1913
« on: Wednesday 06 March 19 02:06 GMT (UK) »
I think this is her death 1967/30962   McAllister   Melba Elaine

I have a photograph of her mother Nita Bowyer. Would love to see a photo of Melba

Melba Eileen Bowyer was born in 1913 with no father listed to Nita (Althea) Bowyer.
NZBDM 1913/22261   Bowyer   Melba Eileen   Nita Selina Helena   NR.

I also think Melba went on to marry John Gordon McAllister that lived in Rotorua?

Someone on ancestry has Melba's parents wrong as she was born before my greatgrandfather arrived in New Zealand from Scotland, was widowed and then became Nita's second husband.

Hi Whiteout,

I have sent a Facebook link by PM. I believe this is very likely to be that of a daughter of Melba.
