Stories of early pioneers told in doco - Scottish in NZ
« on: Saturday 08 July 23 05:30 BST (UK) »
From dale to highland, city centres to remote outposts, Toitū Otago Settlers Museum curator Sean Brosnahan has left no stone unturned to discover the trials and tribulations of early European pioneers who came to call Otago home.
The online documentary series Journey to New Edinburgh, researched and presented by Mr Brosnahan, has now come to an end after three years and more than 350 locations.

The series covers the story of the Otago settlement from its conception in the 1840s through to its realisation, Mr Brosnahan said.

As well as investigating movers and shakers who led the formation of the settlement, it also uncovers the story of some ordinary settlers.

"We wanted to go to where they came from and consider why they might have left there."

Hi Helen,

Thank you very much for posting this. It should provide me with more background and some answers about my Scottish ancestors.
