I now have time for Family History.. and for Dawn too!.

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 pursuits 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!

My favourite sayings are ...
Some people are limited by what they KNOW.
Others are un-restricted by what they can LEARN.

Today, on this day, we are yet again reminded that peace cannot be taken for granted.
That it must be preserved by the acts of leaders, and protected through the actions of citizens.
We must all do our part.                             (Jacinda Adern. Anzac Morning, 2022)

I have been a member of the NZSG since 1985.
I am a member of Canterbury Society 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 ONLY to MEMBERS. Millions of records.
Your Membership of NZSG should aid you immensely with New Zealand focussed records.
Especially now the KIWI Collection is on line
with its 309 data sets and 1498 schools.

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.

"A memorial is far more than a means of marking the resting place of individuals. ... It is a symbol of devotion, an expression of love and is built because there was a life ... not a death. The monument is a lasting way to say "We care!"
