And on that thread is

Quote
Eureka - they arrived 28 November 1949. I always thought it was a Sunderland and therefore arrival was Mechanics Bay. The records show they arrived by the "Tasman Plane" - What that means, I don't know. Maybe they arrived at Whenuapa

Thanks Lucy2 - I must have forgotten that you guys were so helpful years ago. Just writing up my life story now that I've retired.

Thanks for the transfer of the above message.

I have just found out that this website is awesome - for people who need confirmation.

"have you tried using ash.howison.co.nz site. It is fantastic and highly recommend. It collates data on the person you’re searching from the Collections site and other sites as well and displays search results in a much more orderly and nice way than the Collections site does. Also they’ve got an algorithm or something for calculating the exact date of birth, marriage and death based on the data held on the births, deaths and marriages website. Really helpful!"
