I am an Electronics Technician, beginning 1965 for Ministry of Transport, Civil Aviation Division, which became AIRWAYS, New Zealand Limited. I have been at Christchurch airport since 1993 employed at the workshop in a Central Maintenance role. (Aeronautical Navigation, Radar & Radio Communications)
I retired after completing 50 years service.
I am still (November 2016) catching up on the back-log of Saturdays (the work around home) that has accrued over those 50 years!
My genealogical persuits arose in 1984 when I just had to find out how the Wellington folk were my cousins.

One can fall out of a FAMILY TREE when one tries social climbing!
Others are un-restricted by what they can LEARN.
I am a member of Canterbury Branch as well as the national body of New Zealand Society of Genealogists. (#8530)
Like the Internet, there is a great deal of research material to be searched
out at the local & national NZSG libraries. I am STILL beginning to make time
to focus & rummage in these "haystacks" for just a couple of needles.
Dawn & I have paid our money for Autosomal tests at FTDNA (Family Tree DNA).
I have bought a Y111 test as well.
You can visit our tree there at Family Tree DNA. Enter your (or any name) in the search box.

I have most of my PYCROFT in N.Z. contained here, & some of my wife, NEILSON. I am particularly interested in the immigration details of many of these families to New Zealand. My folks originated in HAMPSHIRE & I.o.W., arriving in Lyttelton in October, 1878 on the ship Waitangi.
