It is amazing what you can do these days on the net.
I speak as one who - after having a little look at these lovely people for you (such a great photo!) - has been trying to sort out a DNA match with someone who has a private tree with just one person on it.

I am, so far, back to 1818 with a gx3 grandparents on one line.  It's taken me about an hour.

However, not always so easy, as we all know......

Hello from NZ.

If you find a branch of FURNESS members emigrated to New Zealand, feel free to contact me as I could arrange an introduction. There are only 48 listings for that surname in the NZ telecom white pages.

A number of whom I know of as successful Waikato farming pioneers, including Blueberry production and leading produce grading equipment.

Thanks for that. I have found an Australian link but not NZ.

And it looks like their son Godfrey Gordon Furness was killed aged 19 in WWI

9/2/17  2nd Lt in Sherwood Foresters.

These things are so sad, aren't they.

Found this in the newspapers, so sad, he looks so young.
