13FRC011 Saturday 13th July, 10.00am-12.00noon Computer Workshop
Presenter Diane Hansford
This workshop uses sites in Denmark so it is imperative that you know the following details: Know the Christian and Surname of the person you are looking for. What country where they born in? What state / county do they come from? What parish / village/town do they come from? If you don’t know the parish/village/town you will not be able to find anything.
Before you come to the workshop try to find where they came from: Did they marry in New Zealand after 1880 If yes... Get a photocopy of the marriage certificate. This should tell you who their parents were and also what village/town they were from. If they married overseas have you used the IGI? This is on the internet at <www.familysearch.org> you can put in the names you are looking for and also the country it will bring up a list of names and also who they married. Pay a visit to the FRC in Panmure or your nearest Family History Centre of the LDS and they will help you. Did they have children born in New Zealand after 1875? If yes...Then get a birth certificate. This should give you the parents= marriage date and where it took place and where the parents were born.
If you have looked at all the above but still only know the country. Then get the Death Certificate and see what information it gives. One other place that may have the information you need is Naturalization Papers. Look on NZSG Index Version 4 CD ROM or go to your Library most libraries have a copy of the government=s index for naturalization. If further help is need contact the European Group at <email@example.com>

This workshop will look at how to assist Pakeha / European /Asian mothers, fathers, grandmothers, grandfathers, uncles and aunts to find and research the genealogies and whakapapa for their children and grandchildren, nieces and nephews that carry Maori ancestry in their bloodlines. To link to an ancestral pathway well travelled.
