I was 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 am now retired after completing 50 years service.
It took me two years to catch up on the back-log of Saturdays (the work around home) that had 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!
Some people are limited by what they KNOW.
Others are un-restricted by what they can LEARN.
I have been a member of the NZSG since 1985.
I am a member of Canterbury Branch as well as the national body of New Zealand Society of Genealogists. (#8530)
The Society's resources are large and growing. Digitisation of special records is available ONY to MEMBERS. Millions of records. Your Membership of NZSG should aid you immensely with Neew Zealand focussed records.
Now I have started the DNA experience.
Dawn & I have paid our money for Autosomal tests at FTDNA (Family Tree DNA).
"History Unearthed Daily"
And their Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/FamilyTreeDNA, and join by clicking "Like."
I have bought a Y111 test and for Dawn mitochondrial mtDNA Full Sequence as well.
I anticipate a similar purchase for myself in coming months.
This helps us to connect with those who have bought those tests as well.

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.
