Searching for any information on the Konjkov family that immigrated to Wellington, New Zealand in the 1950's. They originate we believe from Yugoslavia or Russia.

father was Veniamen
mother was Raisa

Daughter was (*)

Hoping someone can find something for me.

Thanks, Paula

FindMyPast lists the death in 1989 (New Zealand) of an Ursula Raisa Konjkov, born 21 October 1914.

FamilySearch.org has some records:

One is a probate record for a Veniamen Konjkov.

Archives NZ holds a few files for this family including 2 'Alien' and 1 'Naturalisation' file that can be accessed.

https://www.archway.archives.govt.nz enter 'Konjkov'

The family are noted as being Russian.

Hi Paula,

The funeral director used is still in business. They should still have information about surviving family, perhaps copies of death certificates and published death notices.

Sorry but had to have a morbid giggle at the unfortunate abbreviation above:

Although the Immigration file held at Archives is restricted, there are details in this link which provide information about the name of the Konjkov daughter, the spelling of which is different from that shown in her father's probated will in reply #1.
