When did they come to NZ?
« on: Sunday 02 June 19 06:26 BST (UK) »
Hi there,
I have just managed to track the names of my x3 great grandparents as Hans Hansen Bolstad and Kristiana Janey Pedersdatter Hellemyren and am trying to find out when the came to NZ from Norway?

I have found they were married in November 1863 in Vestfold, Norway and I know they are buried in Palmerston North.
Thanks in advance for any help!

Can you narrow arrival down by births of children?

Are these two from NZ BDMs theirs?

Hans and Kristiana’s  death certs, the first one that died in particular, should have length of time in NZ recorded. 

Added, which seems to be Hans

Sorry  :(

I thought you just posted the 1909 notice, whereas I posted the 1872 one


Not a problem. I think I had my wires crossed too...... ;D
