Yes I think you may be correct Mckha. Somewhere in the back of my mind I have a feeling that legal proceedings can be taken after a period of seven (?) years to have the death registered. Having said that, I have an ancestor who drowned in 1865 and as far as I am aware his body was not found but the death was registered the same year.


Minniehaha.

Difference could be if there was an inquest or not.

Afternoon update.  NO NOT COVID - 19

Received a nice reply from a Nelson Librarian working from home. It will be level two before the Library will be able to receive members of the public.

However was able to supply the following re G H MYERS often mentioned in the press of the period of interest.

Myers, George Henry     
1849 Flockowner Milton Grove.
Milton Grove thought to be in Milton Street near Grove Street and south of the Maitai river, Nelson.  Ref: Journal Nelson Historical Society Journal Vol.2(1) 1966 p.27


And a link to photos held.

Minniehaha. Two attempts at a PM reply have gone west, unsure why. Take as under action next time Michael contacts me privately. He has other commitments keeping him busy at this time.
Thank you, Alan.

I very definitely think the next step in the puzzle is to get a printout of Samuel's NZ birth certificate, Michael.  I have sent you the coordinates to do so.  I received a printout the other day so the archives people are back on deck.  Go for it.

There is a large amount of information on the divorce proceedings between Jacob Abraham Myers and Dinah Myers.  I have not posted the links here out of respect for their son Harry's possible descendants.  Also, I am not sure about copyright regulations.

Both parties remarried: Jacob 'Jack' to Rose CAMBRY in Lambeth, London 1918; and Dinah to Isaac GOLDSTEIN in 1911 Paddington, NSW, Australia.

Jacob Abraham Myers & Dinah Barnett had a son HENRY MARK MYERS in 1901 Adelaide.  Here is the birth transcription - it's the first time I've seen Jacob called 'Jack'.

The Sydney Morning Herald 18 January 1901: BIRTHS
MYERS - January 15, 1901, at her residence 124/194? Franklin Street, South Australia, Dinah, wife of Jack Myers, and youngest daughter of Mark Barnett, of Sydney, a son.

Hello again.

Michael, hold off on requesting Samuel's cert, for now as I will explain in a PM.

The reading rooms at the National Archives are not fully open for registered readers, when I last looked, but expect them to be so once NZ goes to our [Covid-19] level one, which is expected to be announced in the middle of next week.  At this time strict distancing rules are in play so the archives assistants are offering limited one on one personal research help. Paid for requests by email are being processed.
