Hi to any relatives. I'm new to this site and not sure how to access family trees. I'm a great grand daughter of Petretia - one of Mary's daughters. My grandmother was Mary Isabella Smith ( nee Burrowes) I've seen the tree that Wynston Cooper has made for Alexander, a brother of Petretia's. I've sent him a message- hope he gets it. I live in Invercargill, NZ. Do remember going to Gore frequently to visit a Cooper cousin of my grandmother who made home made wine. Also seen Elizabeth Page that you manage a site too. I've got the Burrowes family tree but not much on the Coopers. Would like to add more of our side if possible- my sister etc
I'm adopted and looking for info regarding my birth grandmother Gladys Blondell, who married Winston Russell in Gore on 18 April 1925. If you are a descendant, or know about Gladys's family, please let me know.
I am researching a George Montrose from UK.His wife was Fanny Marsden . He was born C1810 and had a son by the name of Charles Otho who was born in Kent UK in 1840 . The son moved to NZ and was a journalist. I have details on the son but the father has become hard to research.
Hi Zoe I have traced Marcus and this wife is called Natalie but I can't contact him directly but if you send me a contact I will pass it on for you and she may get in touch.
I can't say too much at the moment but It would be a help if you can tell me anything about Natalie ie where she is from, where they met or got married and possibly when her chidren Owen and Corin where born.
Hi Ron, if its the natalie I'd like to contact, we met at university in Aberdeen where we lived in halls together. She and Marcus moved to Old Rayne after that but I lost touch with her before they got married or had children, so this may not be her! Although I think it is :-))
Nellie Elizabeth Thomas was born in Western Australia in 1902. She was the daughter of Alfred Benjamin Thomas & Ellen (Nellie) Josephine Thomas (nee Martin). Nellie married Oswald Hodges in 1919 in Western Australia. Nellie left Oswald and journeyed to New Zealand about 1930's with or to another man (whose name is unknown to my family). Oswald Hodges filed for divorce in 1943 which was granted in Perth, Western Australia. I would dearly love to find her family as it is known that she had at least one daughter and one son. It is believed her son was in the New Zealand Air Force and he came to Geelong in Australia about 1946 or 1947. Nellie's daughter also had a daughter. Nellie had two brothers whose names were Harold and Alfred and one sister, Edith.
