Hi. Chasing my family tree has hit a brick wall with part of the family emigrating to New Zealand from Carlisle (England) in the period 1854-55. We think that they sailed from Liverpool, and landed in Nelson. Unfortunately we do not know how many of the family came, but it is likely to be mother and 1 or more "children" (probably teenagers or older). The principal family name is BURNS, but maybe also McCARTNEY. Variations in spelling may have occured (eg Byrnes, McArtney?). Does anyone have information which may help us please?

My cousin from Australia and me have been searching our Family History
but we have hit a huge brick wall. We have a Walter Menzies who used to work in Horseracing here in New Zealand. He was my grandfathers cousin but he ended up with my grandfathers sister we don't know if they were ever married but something happened and they ended up in Melbourne and that is where he died.Are there any other Menzies out there that may be able to help us sort out this elusive relation of ours.

My daughter married a Tim Menzies who was born in Melbourne in 1960. They live in West Virginia, USA. Tim is related to a previous prime Minister of Australia, Robert Menzies. I think he was Tim's Cousin or uncle. Tim's father was a flying Dr. His parents are both dead now though.
Don't know if that is any help to you, I don't really know a lot about Tim's family and we don't get to discuss it very much.

Hi all, I've lost my Grandfather??? Francis Herbert Harwood b Akaroa, NZ 1874. Married Rose Baldwin in Taranaki and had 4 children. He left them around 1912 and later went to Canada, possibly British Columbia where he had another marriage and family. I can't find a death in British Columbia or New Zealand for him so I am at a brick wall. Maybe there are some descendants out there.
Hi all you granny hunters out there!
How do I go about getting the military service records (British) of my husband's father who served in WW1? Is there a website I can go to for this?

Hi folksIm from NZ & I'm doing my family tree & do most of my research for England on the website ancestry.com. You can get a FREE trial period if you want. They have connections for WW1 info. etc. I have no contact for the BROWNING or BUICK ancesters after my mother died so have had to resort to the internet. If any of you are connected to the 2 surnames feel free to contact me.The new paperspast site here in NZ is great for picking up articles about the olds. Also it has been marvellous being able to look up Births etc for Free on the internet to.
